Better than Monday night football w/Bears and 49ers: Berkowitz w/Behrend on Cable/Web

 

Bruno Behrend: Can I tell you what’s not pablum… No. 1, 1llinois needs a property tax freeze; No. 2, we need to audit every dime of state and local spending, so we can start cutting in sizes the amounts that we need to start cutting: 10, 20, 30 % budget cuts and then we can roll back taxes. 

Jeff  Berkowitz: You think you got a lot of Republicans to go out and run on that program this year…you think that’s what they were telling people—“We want to freeze real estate taxes.” Do you think that?

Bruno Behrend: Some did.

Jeff  Berkowitz: No, no. We have 54 Republican State Rep. incumbents in the state of Illinois. Out of those 54, how many ran on that program of freezing real estate property taxes?

Bruno Behrend: I know of at least three or four who started talking about it.

Jeff  Berkowitz: Three or four? Oh, that’s a revolution.

Bruno Behrend: I think [the Illinois Republican Party] might have an inside shot [at winning the majority of seats in the state house]

Jeff Berkowitz: ...They're going to get a net gain of six seats?

Bruno Behrend: Yeah, they may.
