Democrats are desperate to pass the Progressive Income Tax. It is a scam that will hurt Illinois as the people with the money to leave will leave. It has happened in every state that has tried the same.
The amendment does open the possibility to tax retirement income, but probably not for retired government employees collecting pensions. The courts will rule that diminishes their pension so that violates the Illinois Constitution.
The WRONG Amendment is on the ballot!
Pritzker has stated over and over that 97% will pay the same or less. By less he means a minuscule percent less.
Today I got a mailer from VoteYesForFairness.com claiming this:
You will NOT see a tax cut – Springfield will never have enough money to pay their debts. They won’t be giving you a break. The flyer is LYING.
What is Fair Share? 20%? 50%? 80%?
Fair Share has no definition, it’s whatever government wants to take from you.
Since this is an era when many people are concerned about “fairness” and “social justice,” what is your “fair share” of what someone else has worked for?
