Illinois Income Tax Increase

Illinois state income tax increase

Anyone in Illinois state government who supported the measure to increase personal income taxes from 3% to 5% has revealed themselves for the ignorant morons they truly are.  Don’t be fooled by the small “3” and “5” numbers, because this means you will be paying Illinois 66% more of your hard-earned money.

Once again, the financial burden of poor fiscal responsibility is placed on the already weary backs of the American taxpayer.  The lords of Springfield have spoken loud-and-clear, “We can spend away with impunity and fleece your pockets whenever we screw up.”  When do we say enough?  When do we slap the government’s hand as it reaches for our wallet?

Does Springfield really think this is going to help the state?  How could they?  Our state economy needs people to spend more money.  Guess what, people didn’t have the money to spend prior to this tax increase.  Springfield’s answer is to further confound the problem.  Unbelievable.

Here’s an idea…  Stop spending money like an out-of-control teenager at the local mall.  Take a hard look at the ridiculous social programs that do little to promote self-sufficiency and personal responsibility.  If you would like TONS of information on the subject of Illinois’ wasteful spending of your money, I highly recommend you spend some time reading this.

Once again, the prodigal son has returned broke and none of us are invited to the party in Springfield.
