Dumby and Dumber

It is unknown whether Lake County State Senator Dan Duffy ever uttered a sentence that did not contain a noun, a verb, and a flat tax. Haha, is there anyone in Lake County who does not believe in tax fairness? Poor people think a graduated income tax is fair -- one that makes rich people pay their fair share. While rich people favor a flat tax, where they are taxed at the same rate as poor people.

Duffy recently mailed a tax fairness survey to his constituents:
The survey begins with a personal greeting ...
Dear Friends,
In 400 BC the great philosopher, Plato, is credited with saying, "those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber."
So true, so true.

Duffy governs represents communities including South Barrington, Lake Barrington, North Barrington, Barrington Hills, Inverness, Tower Lakes.
