The Daily Woz

It’s the Woz’s World, we’re just living in it.

The Woz:

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.

Like me.

The Woz:

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.

  1. Still waiting to hear exactly how the Great and Powerful WOZ is going to cut $1.6 billion out of the state budget when taxes revert to 3.5% from 5%? Well, go on WOZ do tell. Are you cutting front-line teachers, salaries for judges, prison guards, child welfare programs, dentistry, what?

  2. Well yeah and I’m waiting for the Democrats who control all levers of power in Illinois to tell us how much taxpayers are going to have to take it in the shorts to fund their out-of-control government..

    Jacobs? Verschoore? Smiddy? *crickets*

  3. yes, most Democrats want to keep the income tax at rate 5%, it’s jive-talking Republicans that want to cut the tax without telling how they will balance the budget. So once again WOZ and QCE, what programs would you cut to to balance your income tax reeducation from 5 to 3.55 (a total cut of $1.6 billion)?

    WOZ? QCE? *crickets*

    If Rep. Smiddy votes against the ” 67% job crushing tax” will he win your admiration, or will you find another lame excuse to oppose state Rep. Mike Smiddy?

  4. Rep. Smiddy will do what his Big Labor paymasters tell him to do.

    Since I live in Texas it doesn’t make any difference to me what programs are cut in Illinois; my advice to anyone who wants a job—y’all come! The weather is good and there is NO state income tax

    However, if you want taxpayers to support you for the rest of your life by all means stay in The Worker’s Paradise of Illinois.

  5. It’s “You all come,” not “Y’all come.” Just because you moved to Texas doesn’t mean you are illiterate. And please promise that you will brush your teeth, or should I say tooth!

    Can you see rich folks from your apartment window QCE?

  6. I was going counter some of your silly claims, but then thought better of it. After all, if you enjoy Illinois and your taxpayer funded check you would be better off there than here.

    I also rescind my “y’all come” invitation because the last thing Texas needs is a bunch of leftwing wackos bringing their absurd notions of gun control, post-birth abortion, unionized public employees, state income tax and their trite class warfare victim mentality.

    The reason people come to Texas is because they want to be rich, not so they whine about others who have success.

    You just wouldn’t fit in here Randy.

  7. AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Texas continues to have the highest rate in the country of people without health insurance and ranks among the top-10 highest in poverty.

    The U.S. Census released data Tuesday that provides a snapshot of how Americans were doing economically in 2014.

    Almost 28 percent of Texans did not have health insurance, compared to the national average of 15.4 percent. The rate was much higher among working-age adults, with 36 percent lacking health coverage.

    The number of people in the nation with health insurance increased from 260.2 million in 2011 to 263.2 million in 2012.

    Texas ranked fifth in the nation in poverty, with 17.2 percent of the population living in poverty. For a family of three, that’s less than $18,500 of income a year.

    The data shows Texas made no progress in reducing the number of uninsured or the number or people living in poverty, which includes a third of Texas children.

    As long as Republican rape the land, don’t provide insurance to workers, and keep paying them $8 and hour everything will be fine in Big D! Wait till the oil industry dries up and blows away. Hopefully,someone from Illinois will send you a bushel of corn in effort to help you out. If not you can always eat the oil!!

  8. Randy, I don’t care and since you’ve made your point over and over, this will be the last of these I’ll approve. Besides, with Obamacare the law of the land, nobody will have to be without health insurance, right?

    If you like Illinois you can stay in Illinois; I didn’t so I got out. If Texas was such a bad place to live, people wouldn’t be moving here in record numbers and OUT of Illinois in equally record numbers.

    I appreciate your loyalty to your failed state, but I just don’t give a damn.
