IFA Monthly Breakfast Meeting in NW ‘burbs for July 24th

Our second breakfast meeting in the northwest suburbs will feature conservative pro-family advocate and candidate for state representative, Tom Morrison.  Tom grew up in the Chicago suburbs where politics and culture were everyday topics discussed at the family dinner table.

His parents, Roger and the late Susan Morrison, were active, lifelong Republicans, involved in both local and national issues.

Tom absorbed their passion and love for America and their respect for our nation’s Constitution.  His zeal for America’s founding principles would eventually lead him to seek public office.

Tom and his wife, Bethany, live in Palatine with their two children, Tyler, almost three, and one year old Susanna.… Continue Reading

Irresponsible Political Leadership

In an attempt to bring the Illinois budget in line with state revenues, Governor Quinn recently announced spending cuts of 1.4 billion. There has been much handwringing about the cuts to education, healthcare and social services – arguably, there are legitimate concerns about cutting services and programs.

Call me cynical, but I think it is far too easy for politicians to play upon the sympathies and fears of the public while calling for a tax increase instead of doing the hard work of cutting government waste and bloat.  A quick look at some of this year’s budget allocations and I think you will agree:  our current state lawmakers are disconnected with reality.

In the face of deep cuts for education, health care, human services and public safety how can they justify spending $6 million taxpayer dollars for the Museum of Broadcast Communication in Chicago? … Continue Reading
