It should be obvious, but evidently too many people think government needs your money, so they vote democrat. How many tax increases does the State of Illinois have to hand you before you figure out government is working for itself – NOT YOU?
Illinois Democrats have no intention of fixing the unaffordable pension system. They are happy with pension payments taking 35-40% of the entire State budget when they can just take more from everybody who will never see a pension and get campaign contributions from the unions expecting a lavish retirement.
Local: Democrat Tari Renner increased the Bloomington budget $60,000,000 a year. Democrat Chris Koos buried Normal citizens in debt. It will take decades to dig out of the hole.
More proof Democrats think they are entitled to your money happened this week. The County Board met to set the tax levy. If you don’t know, the County Board is dominated by Republicans, citizens dodged a bullet in the election because Democrats were attempting to take the majority. This should prove why in two years the ones up for re-election need kicked to the curb.
Unlike the in-town fleecers-in-chief, the County Board has always tried to not raised the property tax rate if possible. Republican Chuck Erickson wanted the same this year and got it. FIVE Democrats wanted you to pay more for their folly.
Cline was just elected, she replaced Robustelli when he resigned. George Gordon was defeated in the primary and will be replaced by another Democrat Hannah Beer. The 3 others will be up for election in two years.
Lock this in your brain:
Democrats = Taxing You More
What is Illinois giving you for all the additional taxes Pritzker passed?
What are you getting from Bloomington for $60,000,000 more a year?
What is Normal providing for the massive debt and constant tax and fee increases?
Anything you needed?
Choose to decide yourself how to spend the money you work hard for. Quit allowing the Democrat Party to fool you into thinking they are helping you!
More notes from the article: Logan Smith was the ONLY no vote on the budget, the rest of the Democrats conceded. Smith isn’t known as the brightest bulb on the Board.
Democrat Elizabeth Johnson read a letter from the absent Democrat Connie Chung. Sounds like Chung will be threatening businesses who don’t comply with the Illinois dictator edicts. Illinois proves representative government doesn’t exist, Democrats expect you to kneel.
