Steve Balich making a difference on taxes

My name is Steve Balich. I want to represent you on the Will County Board. I have a proven record of fighting taxes. In 2006 I answered the call by taxpayers in Homer Township City of Lockport complaining about being taxed by Homer Road District who did none of the work and City of Lockport that did all the work. After spending extensive time at the Tax Extension Department at County I understood the tax raised by Homer Road Levy was split with City of Lockport, but City of Lockport did all the work. The other Townships in City of Lockport have the same situation getting tax money for doing nothing.
After forming a committee to address the problem, we were joined by Lockport Citizens for fair Taxation Jack Jarrett, myself, and Ron De Sando met with The Homer Road Commissioner, Mike De Vivo, who promised to address the problem. We met with City of Lockport Officials, and reported back to the Homer Township Board. By 2008 we realized that implementing an equitable fix would take State changes to the process, which went nowhere.
Today Mike De Vivo is the only Township Road Commissioner within the City of Lockport that returns substantial funds above the legal split to the City of Lockport. This does not directly help the taxpayers of Homer Township City of Lockport, but does at least lessen the tax burden on everyone in City of Lockport. The other Townships within City of Lockport need to follow the example of Homer Township. The other Township Road Districts in City of Lockport are getting Tax Dollars for doing nothing.

The budget in plain English

This came to me from a good friend. I have been saying we need to get back to living within our means. I said it is absurd to raise the debt ceiling. There is only so much that can be borrowed, taxed, and spent before we become like a third world nation or less.

The budget explained in plain English
Awesome way to simplify things so everyone can understand them

United States tax revenue……………………………………………… $2,170,000,000,000.00
Federal budget……………………………………………………………. $3,820,000,000,000.00
New debt…………………………………………………………………… $1,650,000,000,000.00
National debt………………………………………………………………. $14,271,000,000,000.00
Recent budget cuts………………………………………………………. $38,500,000,000.00

Now let’s remove 8 “zeros” and make this a household budget

Annual Family Income…………………………………………………… $21,700.00
Money the family spent………………………………………………….. $38,200.00
New debt on credit cards………………………………………………… $16,500.00
Outstanding balance on credit cards………………………………….. $142,710.00
Recent budget cuts [which politicians brag about]…………………. $385.00

This is insane. How could a family with 142,710 in debt with an annual income of
21,700 and new debt of 16,500 be happy about saving $385.00? They can’t!

Government does not produce/it gives back a % of what it takes

From beautiful Homer Glen I am looking out the window at all the nice home’s , trees, and cars going by realizing that Homer glen will not exist as I know it in 10 short years if congress continues to keep on spending and borrowing so they can spend more. We have reached a pivotal point in the history of our great country when we either take action to reign in the debt, or let things keep on going toward our demise. http://www.youtube.com/embed/VtVbUmcQSuk
Do we as a people realize what will happen shortly if nothing is done. We are better off to feel the pain now, rather than waiting till we have nothing left. The argument between the House of Representatives and the President along with the Senate; should start with spending NOTHING, and stopping all funding of any kind. Once we are at ZERO, they can fund what is absolutely a necessity, like the military. Our elected officials need to save our country. We are on the eve of financial destruction, and raising the debt ceiling again. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/don-t-raise-the-debt-cieling

The entire mess was preventable, but we people were asleep at the wheel while our elected officials were wide awake and giving us THINGS to make us want to vote for them. Government produces nothing. It only takes.http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/the-compromise-that-killed-us
We as a people are realizing the country has been going bad, our Senators and President need to KNOW we are on to their scam, and won’t take it anymore. They want to give the store away! Are we under a financial terrorist attack by the very people we elected to protect us on all levels of government?
Are the Progressive Democrats trying to end traditional America? I am sure they understand how sick our fiscal house is. Yet they continue on this destructive path toward the demise of the greatest Country the world has ever known in the name of socialism. http://www.examiner.com/will-county-libertarian-in-chicago/the-democrat-party-has-moved-from-the-principles-of-jfk-to-those-of-karl-marx

Fighting to take back America/ we must continue

We live in troubled times, where the hope we sought, is clouded in smoke and mirrors, by change that is fiscally destructive and contrary to our traditional values. The same issues form 2009 when the Tea Party began the fight to save our Country have not been put to rest. The Debt Ceiling has been raised giving the President more money to spend. Immigration is still a huge problem draining citizens of jobs and money. The Politically correct, progressive media is allowed to set the agenda for elections because most of the people we elect fear them. It seems what was traditionally right is now wrong. The progressives have turned our fiscally broke government into a borrowing machine to fund policies that are intellectually stupid, morally wrong, and financially devastating.
The Tea party has fought a good fight to save our country since 2009. We have done more than could be expected with little or no resources. We will engage the system. Our mission is to inform, inspire, and encourage voters to continually participate in the political process, by actively supporting policies and candidates who promote the principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility. Our Country is facing a pivotal time when life as we know it is at stake. We are tired and frustrated with trying change a system which is doing what it was designed to do, giving power and money to those in control while spreading our wealth. Illegals and those on welfare have great insurance, less college costs, etc. We give foreign aid to countries that hate us, paying for their socialism. Being Green has become more important than citizens.
It seems futile to keep on fighting, but we must. We must continue with the goal of taking back America in 2012.
