10th District candidates Robert Dold, Brad Schneider debate
October 23, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Medicare, tax cuts and immigration reform were some of the topics discussed Tuesday night by the candidates in the closely watched 10th Congressional race.
Republican incumbent Robert Dold and Democrat challenger Brad Schneider appeared on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight."
A viewer asked both men if they think tax cuts for the wealthy stimulate the economy. Dold said keeping tax rates low would be helpful.
"I asked my opponent in a previous debate how raising taxes was going to help more people get employed, how is it going to help these small businesses that are struggling right now to make ends meet, how it's going to help them hire that next individual?" said Dold.
"I stand with the president that we should keep tax rates for all income, for all earners under $250,000 where they are. But we have a fiscal imbalance, we need to begin to address that," said Schneider.
The 10th District stretches along the lake front to the Wisconsin border and includes the northern suburbs of Waukegan, Grayslake and Glencoe.
