Most notably, the article states:
"[T]he tax hike is definitely causing an uproar amongst the general populace.
It is, in a way, a bit like the federal health care legislation. Like President Obama, Gov. Quinn would’ve been badly hobbled at the Statehouse if his tax hike had failed (undoubtedly even worse, since no new revenues would have resulted in catastrophic budget cuts).
But also like Obama, Quinn and legislative Democrats will pay a steep political price for passing a very big plan without a clear popular mandate. Again, it will likely be worse for Illinois Democrats because most people tell pollsters they actually like individual pieces of that federal health care law. Not many are gonna love any part of this tax hike."
