We know where Quinn stands on the issues. He wants to retain the 5 percent individual income tax so that schools and other areas of government receive adequate financing.
Quinn presented his budget — a five-year fiscal plan — in March. His campaign has challenged Rauner to come up with an alternative.
We'd all love to pay less in taxes. We'd love to see a booming economy and we'd love to have faith in our government. How do we get there?
The broad concepts Rauner has outlined look good on paper, but we'd like to see the math that shows how what he believes in will work. And, will it work in Illinois, where he would doubtless have to deal with a Democratic-heavy General Assembly?
Rauner can do better than what he released Thursday. We'll be waiting.
