Illinois Republican Congressmen Take Shots at State’s Two Democratic U.S. Senators

Illinois’s Republican congressmen are firing back at the state’s two Democratic U.S. Senators.

Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth had sent a letter to their GOP counterparts in the House criticizing the Republican tax reform plan as harmful to middle- and lower-income households.

But Republicans are responding that something has to be done to give Illinoisans some relief after a state income tax hike pushed by Democrats in the General Assembly.

The GOP delegation also contends that, on average, at every income level there will be a tax cut under their plan.
