“Between 2011 (when the tax hike was implemented) and 2015(when the tax hike will partially sunset), the tax hike will have generated $31.6 billion in new, additional revenue for the State of Illinois…To put that number in perspective, $31.6 billion is more than what Illinois spends on all core government services (e.g. education, health care, human services, public safety) in a full fiscal year.”
Illinois is still a financial basket case, and Illinois Policy demands to know where the hell our money went. If it’s true the majority went to public employee pensions, how much more will the taxpayers be required to fork over to appease the unions?
