Gov. Pat Quinn unsheathes liberal guilt extortion

Don Proft said it so well about Gov. Pat Quinn's attempt to use liberal extortion to build support among the faithful to back his income tax increase:

Quinn: Make the Tax Increase Permanent or the Disabled and the Dying Get It...

Writing about Quinn's proposal to make his promised "temporary" Illinois tax increase permanent, Proft wrote:

Quinn’s less than subtle message to the human services community was that if they wanted to avoid seeing the invoices they submitted to the state for services rendered put into the permanently permanent pay-no-mind bin in the Governor’s office they best fall in line.

And it will work, as we'll surely hear the charge that if you oppose the tax increase--yes, it is an increase--you don't care about the poor, disabled, etc., etc.
