Hernandez Votes to Ensure Wealthy Pay Their Fair Share


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez, D-Cicero, released the following statement after voting in support of the Fair Tax Amendment, a first step toward providing tax relief to 99.8% of families in her community and requiring the wealthy to pay their fair share:

“Donald Trump and the Republicans gave massive tax cuts to their wealthy friends and to multinational corporations that refuse to pay workers a living wage. Our communities are struggling. Our schools need funding. Health care is unaffordable. So a Fair Tax amendment is a necessary step toward ensuring that the wealthy pay their fair share so we can build an Illinois that works for everyone.”
