Governor Quinn and his GOP opponent Bruce Rauner are starting to make the rounds and lay out their plans on how to restore the state's economy. They've both appeared at forums over the past couple of days hoping to woo voters with their ideas on taxes, the minimum wage, and education funding.
Rauner wants to freeze property taxes, lower the state's income tax, and add taxes on certain services. Quinn disagrees with taxing services and says it'll hurt the hardest working people in the state, those who live paycheck to paycheck.
