The Indiana Model

Illinois GOP candidate for governor Dan Proft:

Illinois residents don't just need to worry about losing their jobs to India, they need to be worried about losing their jobs to Indiana.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels greeted the Tax Foundation’s recently released Business Tax Climate report with a triumphant press release celebrating Indiana’s spot as 12th in the nation for business climate – up two spots from last year.

“Indiana’s growing national reputation as a great state to do business has received another boost,” said Gov. Daniels.

But you won’t be seeing any press release from Gov. Pat Quinn’s office. According to the report, Illinois dropped seven spots from last year, falling to the 30th place in the nation in terms of business tax climate. That’s not the kind of news Chicago Democrats want to trumpet from the rooftops as Illinois’ economic death spiral picks up speed.

Don't we know it.
