And you have evidence of Schocks "illegal methods"? Perhaps if you do you should inform law enforcement so he can be properly arrested and tried in a court of law, instead of just spreading rumors without evidence.

What does this woman know about being intelligent? Isn't she the one who claimed they had to pass Obamacare to know what is in it? I would think the Prime Minister of Israel knows a lot more about Iran than the Congresswoman from San Francisco.

Gubernatorial candidate says move would provide $450 million in tax relief

Republican candidate for Illinois Governor Kirk Dillard wants to cut Illinois' sales tax on gasoline. 

Dillard said Illinois is one of 7 states that charges sales taxes at the gas pump. 

“I’m proposing that we cut the sales tax on gasoline, providing roughly $450 million in tax relief to families across Illinois,” said Dillard. “This provides relief too, to all business people and it invests a little bit of savings into repairing our roads and bridges.” 

Under Dillard’s proposal, estimates show that the revenue stream could support up to $1 billion of infrastructure improvements. 

A recent report found that 73% of Illinois’ major roads are in poor condition and over 2,000 Illinois bridges to be structurally deficient. 

The state received a D+ on its latest infrastructure report card.
