Baise: “Two massive tax hikes in the last 8 years and that’s still not enough for the politicians in Springfield – now they simply want a blank check.
”Ideas re-ups multi-faceted ad campaign across the state, reminds voters they can’t trust Springfield politicians with a blank check
As Senate Democrats begin the process today of passing J.B. Pritzker and Speaker Madigan’s massive Jobs Tax on middle class families, Ideas Illinois re-upped its multi-faceted ad campaign reminding voters that they simply cannot trust the politicians in Springfield with a blank check.
“Two massive tax hikes in the last 8 years and that’s still not enough for the politicians in Springfield – now they simply want a blank check,” Ideas Illinois Chairman Greg Baise said. “No matter how the governor and his political buddies in Springfield spin it, this is a Jobs Tax on middle class families that will only further jobs leaving our state.
”Today, the Senate Executive Committee begins debate on the Jobs Tax Amendment. With no actual rates attached, the amendment is a literal blank check for Springfield politicians to raise rates as they see fit for years to come.
“Middle class families in Illinois watch out – as they promise the sun and the moon – the politicians in Springfield are handing Governor Pritzker and Speaker Madigan a blank check with your hard earned money,” Baise said.
