Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Greenberg's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Rolling Back the Quinn Tax Hike
Excerpt: "The 67% income tax increase passed by a lame duck legislature in late 2010 costs hard-working Illinois families an average of $1500 per year at a time when most of us are already worried about our financial futures."
  • Getting Illinois Working Again
Excerpt: "Illinois has a well-earned reputation for hard work, a diverse industrial and commercial base, and a location in the heart of America. Carl Sandburg called us the “City of the Big Shoulders.” And we can be again."
  • Reining in Out-of-Control Spending
Excerpt: "Politicians in Springfield rang up an $11 billion budget deficit by spending too much on bloated, mismanaged and inefficient programs."
  • Taking On Ineptitude and Corruption
Excerpt: "People used to write poems and songs about Illinois. Now they write jokes about us. But Illinoisans aren’t laughing as we get stuck with the bill and the broken economy."
  • Paying Our Bills On Time
Excerpt: "Illinois families understand how to pay our bills. Our government, though, doesn’t get it. The State of Illinois is a deadbeat."
