Tom Cross for Treasurer

I believe the very first step towards putting Illinois on a path to recovery and prosperity is balancing our state’s budget.

The facts aren’t pretty: we have the nation’s worst budget deficit, over $7 billion in unpaid bills and last year alone taxpayers were on the hook for over $278 million in late payment fees for unpaid bills.  That’s right, we paid over a quarter of a billion dollars in late payment fees.

Common sense tells us we need a balanced budget.  The Illinois Constitution requires a balanced budget.  But year after year, both common sense and the constitution are ignored as lawmakers and the Governor use gimmicks and insider tricks to approve unbalanced budgets.

Enough is enough.

Let’s show Springfield how important it is to Illinois taxpayers that we restore fiscal responsibility and fiscal sanity. And let’s tell them that it all starts with balancing the budget.

Join our effort by signing our letter demanding an honestly balanced budget.

Sign our letter today and join the effort.


Tom Cross

Republican for Treasurer
