I bet the gas prices are killing your budget. Lawmakers never understand you have to cut your budget in other places to pay their tax increases. You have less money to spend, therefore tax revenue, like sales tax, will decrease. You can’t eat out as often, there goes the local food and beverage tax.
I bet you thought the roads would get fixed!
Joke is on you yet again.
Remember when the Lottery was going to fund education? Oops, fooled again:
The above is from the lottery website!
So what is your gas tax money going to be used for?
But there is more:
The Illinois Republicans proved once again they are worthless. Pensions are destroying the State. Nothing happened to fix them, it doesn’t even look like they tried to cut a deal before raising the gas tax. The GOP used to be the party of low taxes and growing the economy to produce more revenue. In Illinois that doesn’t apply, especially with the representatives of this area: GOP who voted YES
What did they get other than a little money for their district?
Democrats didn’t need their votes to pass the gas increase. The GOP complied.
What did you get for their vote?
(I wonder if Tari is still trying to get a water park with these funds?)
The Brady bunch is GOP leadership. Speaks volumes about the IL GOP.
