Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Governor Quinn's 67% tax increase
Excerpt: "This tax increase must be repealed immediately."
  • Corporate tax rates
Excerpt: "We must guarantee that businesses will have lower taxes in Illinois than in all of our neighboring states."
  • Budget deficits
Excerpt: "I believe that we should start back at square one. Instead of arguing over what percentage to cut and where, we should start at a budget of zero and have every state department justify its budget to the General Assembly."
  • Unemployment and Worker's Compensation Rates
Excerpt: "We must lower the contribution rates that businesses must pay in order to attract businesses back to our State."
  • General Assembly Scholarships
Excerpt: "While this program was started with good intentions, it has become a major source of corruption as members of the General Assembly award these scholarships to politically connected individuals."
  • School Vouchers
Excerpt: "Every parent in the state should have the ability to choose where their children go to school. The only way to accomplish this is with the use of vouchers."
  • Concealed Carry
Excerpt: "There is no reason not to pass a concealed carry law, and if elected I will work hard to accomplish that."
  • Gerrymandering
Excerpt: "It is time that legislative districts be drawn by a computer with no regard for how a map will affect the politicians."
