Some people think that when I say “Starve the Beast” that I’m just talking about state agencies, state universities and state funded social programs. But look at this property tax bill. I promise you, we’re going to starve local government too!
Here’s the notice that I requested THREE homeowner exemptions, and I needed to drop two. Unacceptable. I deserve three. I used one of these places to clout my daughter into Chicago schools… This was awful.
I live on the North Shore and pay probably some of the highest property taxes in Illinois but STILL not having a state budget is far worse and is what will make me leave Illinois - NOT high taxes. Having to not consider Illinois colleges for my kids because I don’t want them in a cash-strapped, starved system is criminal. So to make it clear, it is NOT THE TAXES that are making a good number of my friends and peers want OUT, it is the dysfunction of the state government.

This colored copy is a waste of resources! I’ve commissioned my new IT division to make sure no one in government ever uses color. Savin’ the pennies one at a time!! #Thestruggleisreal
She says to me “Pay your Bills. I just paid mine!”
I told her my Ivy League degrees and 50 Mil say I don’t have to. Big thumbs down!

“I don’t know what they have to say
It makes no difference anyway
Whatever it is, I’m against it!
No matter what it is
Or who commenced it
I’m against it!
Your proposition may be good
But let’s have one thing understood
Whatever it is I’m against it!
And even if you’ve changed it
Or condensed it
I’m against it!”

“Jeanne Ives says that my plan wouldn’t save people money on their property tax bills — well, it will, I tell you. Down! Look at my thumb, pointing down? That’s my word as a businessman. If it weren’t true, would I say it? A thumb-down is as good as gold, scout’s honor.”

You want the solution to inflation? Hi, friends. Marshall Rauner here for New Deal Used Cars, where we’re lowering inflation not only by fighting high prices, not only by murdering high prices, but by blowing the living (deleted) out of high prices. Yessir. Here’s an example. It’s a 1972 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, for sixty-two ninety-nine. That price is too high.
Yessir. Here’s another one. It’s a Lincoln Continental, Mark IV, 1973. It’s loaded. It’s got air conditioning. It’s got a stereo. It’s got white-wall radial tires. It’s got power steering, power brakes, power seats, power windows. And a price that is just too high. So y’all come on down. Did you hear what I said? New Deal Used Cars.
Heck, this isn’t even the goofiest pic of the Guv from the weekend. There is a Memorial Day ceremony he went to in a suit and tie (yes a tie) with a big ol cowboy hat. A white cowboy hat of course (cause he’s the good guy. MJM always wears the black cowboy hat, right?)
Here is a picture of me, still campaignin’ and not governin’. I am tweeting now as well, just like the guy whose name I wouldn’t mention during the 2016 Presidential election and still won’t mention. Yep, love this campaignin’ stuff, not so much the governin’!
