What about taxpayers?

Posted9/11/2019 1:00 AM

Recently Gov. Pritzker signed a bill into law that raises the starting salary for some Illinois teachers to $40,000 over the next four years.

Previous to this, the governor authorized a pay raise for all state politicians and signed bills to protect the rights of legal and illegal immigrants. He raised taxes on gasoline as well as increased the yearly license plate renewal fee. When will he sign a bill to give relief to the overburdened, overtaxed Illinois taxpayers?


His actions will contribute to the decline in the population of the state. If the decline continues, all who will be left will be the politicians, teachers and the workers associated with their respective organizations. Then at that point, they can all argue among themselves as to who will pay their salaries and provide their benefits.
