It’s the Woz’s World, we’re just living in it.
What this writer needs to see is prices increased when taxes went up and they will rise further with this new tax. LINK
There have been multiple Letters To The Editor of The D/A about the move to a “progressive” tax, this one by a single man, another by a single mom, the downtrodden call out for tax relief like everyone in Illinois.
These people want the progressive tax to go to a vote, and as long as it is expanded, I might be all for it. But bear in mind that I now live in a state with NO income tax.
If Illinois wants to vote on taxes and all that, well, power to ’em. I thought the massive tax increase of ’11 of 67% should have been voted on by the taxpayers—but it wasn’t. It was passed by a bunch of lame ducks quacking for government jobs. I have always believed that public employee union contracts should be brought out in the open and voted on by the taxpayers, who will be stuck with the bill.
It will never happen. Illinois is a top-down state where the poobahs elected from safe gerrymandered districts are The Deciders, and the lowly proles are expected to just suck it up or move out of state.
Great event today [March 16] with @Bobby_Schilling in Moline. Hundreds of Republicans there willing and ready to battle for Illinois and the USA
Schilling’s Facebook said the number attending was above 150. Although it wasn’t stated openly, I surmised this was a Schilling fundraiser since the “suggested” donation was $15 for single and $25 for couples.
But whatever. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, and let’s hope the RICO GOP can keep stepping forward rather than stepping off in the weeds.
