Updated 8/30/2018 1:58 PM

You have to love JB Pritzker's latest commercials criticizing the unfairness of Illinois taxes.

But where was JB's voice when Mike Madigan and Illinois Democrats raised state income taxes 67 percent across the board? Where was JB's outrage when Madigan and Illinois Democrats most recently raised state income taxes 32 percent across the board? Where was JB's voice when a comprehensive analysis of Cook County property taxes under Democrat Cook County Party Chairman and Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios showed widespread evidence of property tax unfairness?

Did we hear JB complain about the tens of thousands of dollars in property taxes he evaded by pulling the toilets in his multi million dollar mansion? And what about the income taxes the Pritzker family dodged by setting up off shore bank accounts?

Where was JB's voice? Silent.
