Last night, Democrats in Springfield abandoned compromise and rammed through a massive tax hike on a party-line vote. Their plan includes no real reform to grow jobs and no property tax relief for homeowners.
Today, the Illinois Republican Party is highlighting their disastrous decision with statewide and targeted robocalls.
Statewide robocalls highlight the Democrat’s tax-hike plan, and how Democratic candidates for Governor are falling in line behind the Madigan Tax Hike agenda.
Last night, Illinois Democrats took the first step in enacting a major tax hike without reforms.
It’s part of a scheme pushed by House Speaker Mike Madigan and Democrat candidates for governor like Chris Kennedy and J.B. Pritzker.
They’ve said Illinois’ top priority should be raising taxes by billions without reforms.
And yesterday, Democrat state senators voted to increase the income tax by 32% on every Illinoisan.
They passed a new sales tax on everyday services like Netflix, dry cleaning and television.
And chose to let property taxes continue to skyrocket.
The Democrats’ Tax Hike agenda is wrong for Illinois.
Instead, it’s time to pass real reforms to create jobs and a real property tax freeze to give homeowners relief.
Paid for by the Illinois Republican Party.
