Kennedy Proposes “a basket of taxes”
On Top of Mike Madigan’s 32% Permanent Income Tax Hike
For Chris Kennedy, Mike Madigan’s 32% permanent income tax hike is only the beginning.
Just this weekend, Kennedy was quoted in the Journal Standard proposing a “basket of taxes”.
And just days ago, a bumbling Kennedy told the 40th Ward Democrats that “we need to broaden” the income tax.
Kennedy’s tax-hiking remarks all come after Madigan’s 32% income tax hike became law.
It’s clear that Chris Kennedy is just another Madigan Democrat who will take even more of your hard-earned money.
* Context from the linked story…
He strongly criticized what he said is a “massive disinvestment in education” resulting in “creation of an education underclass.” […]
We asked how the formula should be changed.
Kennedy proposes “a basket of taxes including a graduated, progressive income tax.” He does not think the school property tax should be eliminated completely, however.
That change has not happened, Kennedy charged, “because of a handful of (legislators) who make their money as property tax appeals lawyers.”
Kennedy didn’t name names, but he left nothing to the imagination about whom he meant: The most important property tax appeals lawyer in the legislature is House Speaker Michael Madigan, a Democrat who controls the fate of all legislation. Kennedy proposed a law to ban lawmakers from being involved in a business that benefits from legislative action or inaction.
But, yeah, he’s a Madigan pawn.
