House Speaker Michael Madigan introduced a constitutional amendment to tack a 3 percent surcharge onto incomes over $1 million, which he said would raise $1 billion a year for elementary and secondary education.

Fantastic idea the school systems across the country are hurting. But the republicans will cry.

<quoted text>What a conservative is all about is letting Pedro do whatever Pedro wants in his own bedroom. Then not trying to ram whatever Pedro is into down other people's throats by force of law. That about sums it up. How are the English classes going?
No, a conservative opposes change--therefore, a conservative does not want Pedro to do whatever Pedro wants to do in his own bedroom--because it might break from traditional views & values. Conservatives oppose everything that doesn't conform to their views.

Maybe you need an English class--I'll save you a seat.
