GOP Congressional Candidate Rodney Davis is stumping in Bloomington for a continuation of the Bush era tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year. Davis claims lower taxes create jobs.

Davis says he disagrees with a study by the non partisan Congressional Research Group showing tax cuts for the rich are not linked to job growth. Davis says citizens and businesses need predictability in their tax rates to be able to plan for the future. Davis' Democratic party opponent, Bloomington Doctor David Gill, says he favors ending the tax cuts for those making more than a quarter million dollars a year.

Gill says he also wants to end tax breaks for companies that outsource jobs to other countries.
