EXCERPT: "SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (CBS) – Gov. Pat Quinn and the leaders of both houses of the Illinois General Assembly have agreed on raising the state income tax. If the bill passes, the plan would raise the personal income tax rate from the current 3 percent to 5.25 percent. That’s a 75 percent increase. In real dollars, that would mean if you currently owe $1,000 in taxes, next year you would owe $1,750.

The increase is for four years. After that, the personal income tax would go down to 3.75 percent.

The Democratic leaders in the Illinois General Assembly believe this income tax increase, a corporate tax hike, and a $1-per-pack tax increase on cigarettes would erase the state’s $15 billion budget deficit. The permanent portion of the increase would be used several ways. Some would be devoted to schools and some to repaying an $8.5 billion loan that would be used to pay overdue bills, state Senate President John Cullerton said.

Another chunk would go to property tax relief in the form of annual $325 checks, he said. The checks would replace the property tax exemption that homeowners can now claim on their income taxes."
Ain't Liberalism grand?

The Dummycrats mewled:  "they have no choice but to raise taxes as one part of a solution to Illinois’ massive budget crisis. The state deficit could reach $15 billion in the coming year. The government is borrowing money to cover some obligations, letting bills go unpaid for months and cutting corners everywhere from state prisons to state parks."

They have NO CHOICE but to raise taxes. Hmmm.

Did they consider CUTTING SPENDING? Did they consider CUTTING welfare payments and benefits to the ILLEGAL ALIENS that Chicago is chock full of? Did they consider NOT being business UNFRIENDLY? Did they consider ENDING the state funded social programs for unions that hamper productivity and force businesses to move elsewhere, like Florida, Texas, etc? Did the consider CUTTING state government salaries? CUTTING their workforce?

Even better is the "temporary" tax hike. BWAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAH! Yeah, like that "temporary" telephone excise tax to pay for the Spanish-American War, that lasted what, 80 YEARS?

This is a case of sweets to the sweet. These morons REELECT DUMMYCRATS over and over and over and wonder why sh*t like this happens.

"The tax on cigarettes, now 98 cents a pack, would jump to $1.98, Cullerton said. The money would be earmarked for education."

HAHAHAHA! Yeah, MORE money for teacher's pay. Bet on it. A payback for voting Dem and being in the pro-Dem teacher's union.

The real laugh is that whopping $325 "rebate" check. haha. Yeah. Your taxes skyrocket and they remit some crumbs to silence the sheeple. Classic liberalism.

Here is a prediction based on the historical actions of Liberal scumbags.

They'll collect, say, 150 billion and then spend 250 billion, and whine that they need to raise taxes again.

How's them liberals working for ya Illinois? BTW, stay the F**K out of Alaska, we don't need any blue staters fleeing what they've created THERE to poison our state HERE. Besides, we have our own librats to take care of, i.e., sell my bear repellent to before they go to visit Kodiak Island! (Ingred. include rendered bacon grease, natural honey scent, salt, etc!)

"The last official act of any government is to loot the treasury." G. Washington


  1. Gunny,

    I have a couple buddies that live in downstate IL. They claim that the rest of the state would love to see Chicago leave the state.

    They also claim that Chicago and it's residents loot the rest of the state.

    No IL governor even bothers to stay in Springfield (the capitol). The govenors always stay in Chicago with the other crooks.

    The crooks always vote themselves free cheese, naturally at the expense of others. Then of course when the programs go to shit they raise taxes while blaming the conservatives who had opposed the plans in the first place.

    The Leftist states are beginning to implode. I expect that Illinois is just the first of many Blue states.

  2. Great.....
    Now more idiots will move away from Illinois to places like Florida and Texas, but they will stooooopidly continue voting Dim-ocrat because that's what their families have done for generations.
    That is why Florida has been close in the past 3 Presidential elections.

  3. Look for an increase in sales of cigarettes in Wi.,In.,Mo.,Ky.,Ia., I think you get the picture.Spending cuts in a blue state? May as well hold up garlic with the sunrise behind you.

  4. Hardnox,

    I agree. The implosion is coming. I'm betting that more people will leave, more businesses will leave, and the vicious cycle will continue.

    Chicago is the next Detroit.

  5. Craw,

    Don't discount that a lot of the geezers who reflexively vote Dummycrat have gone to their reward. And they elected Rubio over that lying sack of sh*t Crist.

    Maybe we Red States need to start reeducation programs for "immigrants" from Blue States to make sure libscum ain't slipping through.

  6. Gunny,

    Off topic but relevant:

  7. It's the perfect plan.
    The state gives outrageous pensions, welfare, government employee salaries, goes broke and wants the rest of the states to bail them out.
    So they can do it again next year.
    Bailouts of state governments.
    That may be where the next revolution begins.

  8. clyde,

    HAHA! Yeah, taxing and spending is to libs what mean and ugly is to Hillary.

  9. Uh.....the CBO agrees that Obamacare will NOT save money, but repealing it WILL!!!!!
