What Illinoisans are saying

 

This proposed tax could devastate my husband and I financially. We worked all our lives serving as employees of the state.

Monell Servis

Springfield, IL

My wife and I are both retired. We worked hard all our lives to get what we have...If this bill is passed, I will be forced to sell my home and leave the state I was born and raised in.

Jeffrey Briggs

Pekin, IL

If this amendment to the Illinois Constitution is passed, it will open the door for Illinois politicians to raise income taxes on personal income at their whim WITHOUT ANY FURTHER VOTER APPROVAL! I do not trust Illinois politicians...and with good cause.

Nancy Kerby

Arlington Heights, IL

The state of Illinois's history is littered with tax increase promises. The increase in the plate fees went from $48-$96 to fix the roads. We now pay $150 and the roads are still not fixed. I am seeing people leave the state and with them goes their tax revenue.

Mike McArdle

Palatine, IL

More people will flee Illinois if this initiative passes. Less people means less money to pay for the needs of Illinois’ citizens. Higher taxes are already killing the future of Illinois. Plain and simple: Illinois needs to manage its money better.
