"Holy cow. I want you to work on that next time, Toni. Yeah. You've got my vote, John. No, no, no, I'm not playing you guys play, but If you get in that sandbox, I'll bring the bucket, which is a new saying. I just made up, but I feel like she makes an excellent point that there are other issues and if they want a much more pressing, okay, but Listen, We don't need to quibble about this anymore. I mean, it's it's fate is sealed one way or the other. It looks like in your favor, but I'm still I'm still confident that now that the only other lever for them because are they going to fix it? Are they going to say OK, we're gonna cut spending and Do all of these other radical things. Are they just going to go? Well, I hate to do this. But taxes are going to go up and I I don't know I don't have a crystal ball, Tony, but I see that is almost the easiest thing for them to do. Well, we know that people don't get reelected when taxes go up and want to make sure that in order to get elected, we get these taxes to stay down and we get the deck ticket go down. We're eight billion behind for this fiscal year is scary. It's really scary, and I think what's most important for us to all realized. Is that the people? The majority of the people in this in this state know that there are better ways than just to segment ties in charge. People thinking one group can do it. It's just we got all come together. One group, meaning the 3% that make the most money. You know, whichever group they choose at whatever time they choose to make that choice. No, we never vote is so important Job. We never voted on a percentage. Or on a dollar amount of earned income. That's intriguing. So if if that amendment had said, rather than let's let them decide, which is what it did. Let's limit the number of taxes. They congratulate right so it can only be on income and not on anything else. But this would allow them to do that. So they didn't They didn't restrict it That way. Gave them not only the keys to the car, giving the keys to the whole fleet of cars. But then also if they said, and you shall never increased the taxes more than this, or nevermore than people who are making this amount of money. There were none of those governors. None of those regulators. On that amendment. Oh, if they had put that there, Tony, it might have been a more difficult road for you. Well, I think for certain that what it would have done have given more voters the confidence that what they were saying they were voting for and what they were actually voting forward. Same and never in the conversations of the debates that I've had with anybody about this. Was there ever a conversation about what we're actually doing and whether or not that was going to fix the problem? What we were always arguing about was whether or not is this believed percentage of people who would be affected were a big enough. Representative representation for us to not do the right thing, and it was very, very misunderstood from the beginning, and I think intentionally, but a lot of people did their due diligence. Listen, I didn't know a lot about this. But as I study more and more I said, Wow, our state is in a really serious Predicament and we need to fix our spending. We will never have enough money to fix this. Paid for by citizens for Tony Duncan. Tony Duncan is a member of the coalition to stop the proposed tax hike, so the votes are finally being counted. By the way, Tony or private businessman too, right? I am. I am. I am very much so my entire adult life. My wife and I have 26 years We've been small business owners, and we've had the opportunity to really help. A lot of people go from, you know, just jobs to meaningful careers and and we love small business. And we also know that that corporate taxes and things of that nature were directly connected to this. And so this was a big win for small businesses and farmers. And really meaningful parts of the work of working class of Illinois. Well, you better not move then. So since we've sort of given all of the high income wage earners or the businesses, which will Well, tell us that they're not making too much money. And I want you all to stay. And I want you so I want you to pay all the taxes you're supposed to pay. And I want you to pick up litter when you drop it. I want you to be these sort of good civil corporate citizens. We want you to be okay. You bet your right and this is, you know this means more businesses are going to stand. Illinois Mohr that big wage earners are going to stay and spend in Illinois, and that's it. That's what we want. That's what we all want A Tony come to our studio sometime. You and I have not met in person, but it's been a pleasure talking to you the last few days. All of the pleasure has been mine, John, I look forward to it. Thank you.

It's a picture of me as Dracula and my little dog, Daisy. You can color it in and have a nice holiday weekend. Happy Halloween weekend to you. So maybe you're going to vote this weekend. Maybe we'll vote on Tuesday. I fascinated to see what the results will be on that Graduated Income Tax amendment. We've talked this week to both Tony Duncan and Quentin folks one for one against it. Let's wrap up this week with the final conversation with the two of them at the same time, Tony Quentin, Welcome to the show. I'm glad you were able to join us one more time. John. Thank you so much for having that, Uh you don't? Yeah. Tony and Quentin right there. Okay, so guys, I know our listeners have some questions. I mean, we could do a debate back and forth all throw the issues out, but I think it would be helpful to if you have a question, reservation or comment about this. 3129817 200 is the telephone number. The words fair tax do not appear on the ballot. It's graduated Income tax initiative, Tony, We've talked about this before. I think One of the great concerns people have is that They're worried it's going to go after retirement income. What do you say about that? Well, first and again. Thank you so much for having me on John. You know, I'm a small business owner. You have been a small business owner for 30 years growth in Illinois and Rogers Park in Chicago. Um, I'm very concerned because I know for a fact that every single state that has used graduated system has also retire taxed retirees. And that thing system, so there's no reason to think that we somehow we're going to be different, and there's nothing that we're voting on that protection from it in the future, Quentin. What about that? So the caretaker has nothing to do with Tekken retirement income, And that is something that our opponent keeps saying in order to try to scare people into voting against their own interest here. What the fare taxes about it simply trying to impose higher tax rates. On higher income earners and lower tax rates on lower income earners. It has absolutely nothing to do attacks in retirement income, which is exempt from taxation and the state of Illinois, the legislature would have to pass. Legislation in order to tax time an income of the fair tax something completely different. And obviously the courts have said as much. Ah lawsuit was brought against just their attacks on this ground, and the high court in Illinois has already thrown it out and said that you know the FairTax does not tax retirement coming had nothing to do with that time come in, and I said on the radio earlier today that I think this is a referendum on Politicians in Illinois, the Springfield types the Mike Madigan's of the world. This tax may be a good idea. But if I don't like or trust them, then we'll cut off our nose to spite our face. Do you see the sort of road block that thought presents for you? Well, absolutely. And, you know, I don't want to be dismissive of that. But I can tell you that, you know, I don't think we should be in the business of punishing middle and lower income families because we don't like an individual That's elected official. You know, we're talking about changing the Constitution and something that you know we have the best chance to do right now, which is simply imposed graduate attack system in the state of Gilmore in 50 years. 30 years, 100 years long after the politicians are gone, this is about this is going to be About who were asking to step up today on unfortunately, the lower middle class families in the state of Illinois have paid for far too long. And we're asking those wealthiest individuals. Those who make over $250,000 a year in earnings or in profit for small businesses with businesses in general to pay a little bit more so that we can have the revenue that we need, But this is about who is going to pay. Our opponents would like people to believe that this is about power. This is simply about who's going to pay is going to continue to fall off little lower income families, or are we going to ask the wealthiest about millionaires and billionaires, corporate CEOs to step up a little bit more? Go ahead. You know, John, if I could, if I could comment on that question has done this. He said that there is nothing about this amendment that that has anything to do it retiring. And I have to point this out. First and foremost. It was the state treasurer that in June, said that by having the graduated system that we can now better understand how we were goingto tax retirees, and then he flip flopped on that, you know, and that is the reason why there's so much concern because it was brought up by our State treasurer. Why would anyone trust Springfield? More specifically, here? I am a business owner who have been through to catch the last 10 years and somehow I'm supposed to believe that retirees are going to be taxed because somebody said they don't intend to. It would require, But this amendment does not allow you to tax retirees. Correct, Tony This amendment allows you to segment ties people into tax brackets, and that then allows you a different route of new and unyielding power for Springfield. Politician understand? Then turn around. Impact Our residents, OK, hold on to the was listening at home. Please, Please acknowledge that John asked him a direct question. Does the fair type attacks retirement in Tom? And he could not answer? The caretaker has absolutely nothing to do? No, I most certainly should answer it and thank you very much pointing, but the truth is this creative. Abilities not only raise taxes but also creating change tax brackets whenever they want. Okay, Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. This is true. Is it? Not that if we did Tax retirement income. It might be easier to now because we would say that we're only going to tax retirement income at a certain level, but so I understand how this sort of makes the slope slippery. But gentlemen, this does not allow you as a result of this specifically To tax retirement income. Is that not correct? It does not. It does not tax. The FairTax has absolutely nothing to do what talking about here today has nothing to do with the time. OK, OK, hold on right there. Pause for a moment.

"Proponents call it the FairTax opponents fallen the tax hike amendment. What it is, is a proposal to change Illinois flat income tax where all taxpayers paid the same rate now, just about or just a roll under 5%. The proposal is to make it a graduated or progressive tax. Our urine of the higher the rate you pay. The federal income tax is like that. But what would it mean in Illinois this weekend? We're going to try to help you decide for yourself in a discussion with advocates from both sides of the issue, we are still doing the social distancing thing because of Kobe 19. So joining me via Zoom conferencing is Quintin folks executive director with Vote yes, For fairness, That's the main organization. Backing passage of the amendment. He's also president of Think Big Illinois, which advocates for Governor J. B. Pritzker's agenda. He's also been the governor's campaign manager. On the other side is Tony Duncan with the coalition to stop the Tax amendment. He is on entrepreneur of the tax hike a member of the coalition to stop the tax hike a minute. Let me get the full name straight. He is an entrepreneur, wellness coach. And he's the founder of Body Science of this training operation on the North Shore. Well, thank you. Thank you for having me great. Quentin quotes Let's start with you. People are being asked to change what's essentially a very simple tax system. Everybody face 5% of their income. So why go to attacks with several locals? Simple. It's about fairness. Great on. The reason is because it's simply not there that someone making a billion dollars a year is paying the same tax rage as somebody making $40,000 a year. This whole concept of rebounds around asking those wealthiest in the state to step up and pay a little bit more are currently in the state. We have an extremely regressive tax system, where the lowest 20% pay around 14% of their income and state and local taxes and fees while the top 1% pay around seven and at 7.4% so roughly, you know, Half on DH, So it's just not fair on the FairTax will allow us to address that by imposing higher tax rates on higher income earners and lower tax rates on lower income earners while giving 97% of Illinois and a tax cut. All that Tony Duncan people are seeing hearing lots of ads say the fair tax isn't faring could be costly to taxpayers and the state. What makes that flat tax Well, first off, Let me just say thank you so much for letting me come on to your show and speak with you and your audience. It's a pleasure to talk to you. You know, I'm born and raised in Illinois have been a small business owner, My wife and I for 26 years. And, you know, we believe wholeheartedly that the issue at hand right now is not about fair. It's about power. It's about giving Springfield politician unyielding new power to high taxes and created many brackets They want whenever they want taxing us. Are taxing more money to our residents, but People might say, you know, they can raise taxes now. Ah, I mean, in fact, I've covered the light cover the Legislature for a number of years and that you know, I remember when the tax was doing a half percent so they could raise it now. What's the difference? Well, The difference is first and foremost that they're able to now to put people into different types. Frank. It's so that they're no longer having attacks just the entire group. But to switch it up of the vic contacts, whatever group they want whenever they want as much as they wanted, they were serious about these taxes. They would have been baked into the amendment. But they're not. And they they just want to have power. It's just a power grab. Quinton folks, What do you say to that that this is just opening the door to future taxes. I say that our taxes should have people segmented into their ability to pay, which is what the graduated income tax of the fair tax is all about. This has nothing to do with power does not make it any easier for Springfield to raise taxes on anyone. The power to tax is the same under the flat text right now, as it would be under the fair tax if it is put in place by voters in this election. Season. So it's just simply not true that the FairTax gives the Legislature any additional power. But we do believe that those wealthiest individuals and in this case, the top 3% of those individuals making more than $250,000 a year should step up and pay more on the lower middle class in Illinois have been paying their fair share for far too long while the burden has been volatile on them on, and millionaires and billionaires and the top wealthiest and 3% in our state has simply not paid their fair share. Would it be? I mean politically? Would it be any easier to raise taxes? If you were targeting specific segments of the population, you know, like as this tax would do. You look at somebody that manages political campaigns. I don't think a tax increase is ever easy for anyone, whether you're raising them on somebody that's making, you know $100,000, or if you're raising them on somebody that makes a billion dollars. It's never easy on. I think that we see the campaign around that. You know the campaign around this idea showing that, But the fact remains is that we have an unfair system that is punishing lower and middle income Illinois ins and if you look at some of the studies of data is the one I'd like to point out the most just because it's kind of the most egregious. And my opinion is a study that was done by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy that said. Over the last 20 years, Black and Hispanic families have paid roughly $4 billion Mohr under the flat tax, and they would have paid under the fair tax. And during that same time frame, the top 3% of the wealthiest and Illinois have built their cumulative wealth by 7.5 billion. So this isn't the government giving anything to those individuals. This is individuals that live in those communities, black and Hispanic communities that paid an additional $4 billion more than I could have stayed in their communities have been invested in businesses. Small businesses like Mr Duncan's, So you know, it's just not fair. We have a progressive system that is punishing people because they don't make a lot of money in this state. Tony Duncan, The coalition's says that this tax would put African American and latte. Next people at a disadvantage. Why is that? Well, first off, I just make it a talking point that they're using. When they say that this is fair fair has absolutely nothing to do with it. This is again about power power. That the state representative that the people that we have in Springfield don't have right now. That power is.

There are millions being spent in the campaigns for and against having a graduated income tax in Illinois. Much of the debate over the ballot questions about what happens well after the measure is approved. Hackers of what they call the fair tax say Having graduated income tax rates, like the federal income tax does means people are taxed according to their ability to pay the rich pay more. But businessman Tony Duncan, with the coalition to stop the tax hike amendment, says this isn't about fairness.

Steve Miller NEWS radio 105.9. FM, Illinois voters next month will decide on a constitutional amendment to change states flat income tax structure to a graduated one. Where the wealthy pay more. The two sides of the debate, though, are clashing over what would come next. Businessman Tony Duncan, with the coalition to stop the tax hike amendment, says the danger and approving the graduated income tax in Illinois is the politicians who can't be trusted, will raise taxes on the middle class as well as the rich. They're able to now put people into different tax bracket. So that they're no longer having attacks just the entire group but to switch it up of the deck contacts, whatever group they want whenever they want as much as they want. But Quentin folks, director of Vote yes, for fairness, says lawmakers already have the power to raise taxes. Look at somebody that manages political campaigns. I don't think a tax increase is ever easy for anyone, whether you're raising them on somebody that's making, you know $100,000, or if you're raising them on somebody that makes a billion dollars. It's never easy..

"I'm Terry Stacey with you for the next couple of hours and on the show today local author, Julie young Julie. She's written a new book about the burger, chef murders, and it is still an open case. She'll be here at about eleven fifteen law. So chicken with a writer at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, he'll talk about why we should go back to the moon as we get closer to the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo eleven mission. But this hour, if it's happening in Indianapolis, you're going to hear about it, including the idol Jorg Indian market just getting underway. Joining us now is Brian Corbin, from the idol Jorg. Hello, Brian, how are ya? Hi, terry. It's great to be with you. I'm glad you're here. The idol Jorg Indian market and festival. I mean there's nothing like it in our city. The twenty seventh annual idol George museum Indian market and festival, and we will be having one hundred and twenty native American artists from across the US, and Canada who will be on the museum grounds Indian the museum and they will be showing and selling their beautiful art. And we also have music and food and culture and it'll be a fun weekend. This is a rain or shine event, isn't it? Yes. And I don't think whether it will be a problem for two reasons we have one hundred twenty artists half of them are inside the building. They have their artists boots inside the museum building. They're set up there. So there's a little rain you can just go inside the building. But also the other artists who have their boots outside on the lawn. They are under big tents, big, canopy tents, so, so you'll be under a tent as well. So whether they're inside or outside that people can can meet the artists and shop their art and enjoy the weekend, also have music, performances taking place under the sales in the back of the museum and all the museum exhibits will be open. So rain or shine. It'll be a fun event for the first time what they will experience. What will they see visitors to the idol? George Indian market in festival will have really a wonderful opportunity to meet native American artists from really more than fifty native American nations from across North America. Each native American nation is very different from the other in. They sell all kinds of interesting art pottery, beautiful jewelry, beadwork basket, three paintings sculptures. We have music and dance performers throughout the day. We have world champion hoop dancer, Tony Duncan who will be performing at one PM. We have a native American rock band called son of whale, the will be performing at three PM to. It'll be a lot of fun. You mentioned. There are more than fifty native American nations that will come and participate here in Indiana. Do we still have a few native American nations that live within the state? Yes. And including best known the D Miami nation. But also the pot of WADA me and several other groups and in fact, the native American nations of Indiana and of the Great Lakes, region generally are an important component of the idol Georgs native American art galleries in our exhibitions on the second floor. So that's something people can see while they are here. And that's always been a focus of the idol. George museum from in the beginning. The native American nations of Indiana in the midwest generally, and that's going to be our focus in coming years as well. Yeah, the artists will be here, specifically for any market and festival from all over. We have someone from Alaska, we have artists from New Mexico, Arizona, you really from all over the US and Canada. So it'll be a great opportunity to, to meet folks mall, over who do all kinds of interesting, art, and a great opportunity to shop, or just to, to walk around, and also experienced native American cultures and food will have several vendors who will be here as well as the museum cafe itself. So it'll, it'll be fun all day experience family friendly, Brian carbonates with us. He's the public relations manner manager at the idol Jorg museum for the idol George Indian market and festival. What is the highlight for you, Brian? I think it's just the variety and the opportunity to meet in beautiful art from all over from native American artists from all over the continent. And also hear the music we have a lot of regular visitors who come in. See India more in attendance market and festival year after year. But we also have plenty of first time visitors who come as well. Maybe the first time they come they're really interested in the music performances. But then, when they're here they become very interested in the art, and then they come back again, in subsequent years, because maybe they have a favorite artists that they wanna meet him in protest art from again. And I could add if a children and youth ages seventeen and under get in free. There's no ticket price for for kids ages seventeen and under and then parking.
