Can 97% of taxpayers in Illinois pay less in taxes while the State plans to spend more? The local Democrat Party must think citizens have ZERO common sense:
They don’t mention Springfield is planning to give financial aid to illegal aliens too.
The FLAT income tax has been continually increased. The State can’t escape its one step above junk bond status or pay the bills. Democrats think the golden goose is taxing the rich! Once the rich leave, like they have done in state after state, they will be coming for your wallet!
If the progressive tax passes, Democrats can change the brackets anytime they want! No need to tax everybody, just lower the bar on who pays more.
It isn’t mathematically possible for 97% to pay less and revenue to increase.
It is also Class Warfare!
Americans strive to raise what class they are in. Unlike other countries where that isn’t possible, we celebrate success. The Democrats want to steal it. Unless it is them, they hate the rich.
Maybe the Democrats plan to tax corporations, they just aren’t saying yet. They are furious that federal tax rates were lowered. Watch more businesses leave Illinois.
Here’s what is amusing:
Pritzker will put a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot so people can vote whether to change to a progressive tax, those who vote yes think they will pay less while the rich pay their fair share.
Pritzker will not put a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot to change the pension structure that is causing all the problems. Currently around 25% of the State budget is paying people who aren’t working. All those retired people get a 3% raise every year and pay NO STATE INCOME TAX on their windfall!
You can’t fix stupid!
How about a progressive tax on pensions? Collect over $100,000 – pay your fair share!
Democrats lied about the Trump Tax cuts, they are still lying.
