Senator Durbin Supports State Millionaire Surcharge Proposal

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin thinks most Illinois millionaires won’t mind paying more to help a state in crisis.


Durbin gave his support Sunday to Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan’s proposal for a three-percent state surcharge on incomes of over $1 million.


Durbin acknowledged that some millionaires might pack their bags if the tax hike passes, and noted that some have already put family members up in homes in Florida.


That was a thinly-veiled reference to Durbin’s election opponent, Republican Senate nominee Jim Oberweis. Durbin later apologized for injecting Oberweis’s family into a political discussion.
