Steve Staneck interviews Ben Van Metre, Senior Budget, Tax and Policy Analyst at the Illinois Policy Institute, regarding Illinois’ movement from Flat tax to Progressive income tax. This movement is in opposition to more successful financial states who have adopted the Flat tax.

Ben Van Metre explains how the volatile Progressive tax is detrimental to states due to its dependence on the shifting economy.
