Illinois moves into the top 20 personal income tax states

If you are in Illinois and upset over the personal income tax hike, well now Illinois is the 16th worst state to be in.

Here’s a list of the states with highest average income tax rates:

California – 7.75
Oregon – 7.73
Minnesota – 7.53
Maine – 7.23
Vermont – 7.18
Hawaii – 7.01
New York – 6.05
Wisconsin – 5.94
North Carolina – 5.49
Connecticut – 5.4
Massachusetts – 5.1
Idaho – 5
New Hampshire – 5
Tennessee – 5*
Utah – 5
Illinois – 4.95
Iowa – 4.92
Rhode Island – 4.83
West Virginia – 4.8
Delaware – 4.71

“The tax increase isn’t a solution to (the state’s financial problems),” Labell said. “The impact of this hike would be felt much sooner than the budget impasse. There would be more economic stagnation and more people will leave the state, and the more people who leave the state, the worse it will be for those who stay.”

The economic downfall of Illinois is already bad. I have not closed on my new property as of yet and i am tempted to just cancel it and work on moving to a better state. Illinois is beyond fixing. The second quote is exactly what will happen. When businesses and residents flee the state the increased tax rate won’t do much with the lousy spending the state is doing. The only way Illinois gets out of the debt and avoid becoming a junk state is to cut 70% of it’s expenses. That means a ton of layoffs, something that no state wants to do but without a budget and without a way to pay off the debt there won’t be a state for people to live in. And that means the entire state will suffer.  For starters IL should shut down their emissions air quality control and cut all road construction and only focus on the roads that desperately need repairing.

When i had a budget crisis of my own i had to make some tough choices. I couldn’t buy any new clothes, couldn’t buy any cleaning supplies (only when i really needed it) and i only drove to work and home. I was still losing money but it wasn’t a whole lot and i got it back during tax time. I am already going to see if i could claim myself as a dependent on state income taxes but that means i won’t be able to spend that money.. and it’s a bit of a headache with that and usually it’s easier to just let them take the money they need out. But if they are not getting paid every week they may have to make more cuts. In the end it won’t matter as the extra money they are trying to get from people will be lost when people are moving out of Illinois. The only solution to fix this is something that the Illinois politicians are not willing to do, but it needs to be done if we are to get out of this budget crisis.

Taxes in Illinois is already horrible. The fact that now it increased has more people fleeing the state. What Illinois’ New Budget Means for Residents

So what does this mean, more people are selling their homes and if they could even sell their home in the first place because people do not want to live in Illinois due to it’s ridiculous tax rate. So the housing market will crash. People spending less will cut job hours, cutting more profits for Illinois. This tax rate will not solve the budget crisis Illinois has. They need to budget and they need to cut a massive amount of expenditures. Now some people might think this tax rate will help Illinois.. It won’t. It’s only going to further destroy Illinois credibility. And at this point, i just want to leave the state because it’s become too costly to live in Illinois. Without an effective budget this state will simply fail.

Illinois fails to come up with a budget. Gov. Rauner responds to state lawmakers failing to pass state budget. So what happens? They try doing a sugar tax on drinks. Judge blocks Cook County soda pop tax 

Even though it’s supposed to curb obesity and raise health overall all it’s really going to do is cause people to spend less money elsewhere. Meanwhile Illinois politicians are fattening their wallets, because of a dysfunctional budget it’s a great excuse to extort taxpayer money. Illinois is falling apart. How Illinois became America’s most messed-up state

Illinois already has the worst tax rate in the US, ILLINOIS HAS HIGHEST OVERALL TAX BURDEN IN THE NATION – Let’s understand why Illinois has the highest property taxes
Translated: Illinois residents are being robbed from their income. Other states do not have these ridiculous tax rates. You may heard the phrase, “taxation is theft”, well in this case Illinois fits it perfectly. Millions politicians are thieves. Since they can’t come up with a budget, they are increasing taxes and of course they are doing just that which makes Illinois the worst state in America, Tax increase approved by Illinois House heads to Senate; Gov. Rauner threatens to veto

No more tax increases Illinois!

Several lawmakers called for people to act with courage and support the tax hike.

“I hate tax increases, hate them, and it will hurt small business to do this, but it also hurts small business to ask them to do business with the state and then we don’t pay them,” said Rep. Terri Bryant, R-Mt. Vernon.
“We have an opportunity to keep our state afloat and stop being an embarrassment,” said Lou Lang, D-Skokie.

Next stop is over at the Senate, which reconvenes at noon Monday.

House Speaker Mike Madigan was celebrating the votes Sunday. The bill does not include any of the reforms the governor wanted.

So this is the response from the Republican party. Enough already, as an Illinois resident i am sick and tired of having my hard earned money taken away because the politicians can’t come with a budget. Everything from soda taxes to higher rates at the gas pump to higher tolls, everything in Illinois is going up. The only thing that is going down is the population and property value.

Something needs to be done here and it’s along the lines of kicking these politicians out of office and getting people who know how to do a strict budget without raising the taxes. In fact taxes need to go down. Illinois residents are already hurting because of the poor mismanagement of taxpayer money and high taxes. At this point, the only thing Illinois can do is go bankrupt and let the surrounding states handle the former Illinois state because at this point, Illinois is too far gone. With the soda tax in Cook county, it’s only a matter of time before people just leave Cook county and Illinois all together. The tax increase is only going to make things worse for Illinois. Not having a good budget is making things worse for Illinois.

It might be too soon, but R.I.P. Illinois.

It seems as if this topic does not have an end and already the transgender activism has been misinforming people causing a battle on both sides with no resolving the issue, is it ok for a male to become a woman? The answer, logically would be no and you would go in that particular direction. We have seen how much can happen for those who decide to live in a transgender lifestyle, Coroner: Transgender woman shot multiple times
Transgender Community Faces ‘Attacks on Humanity’ in Six More States and despite them thinking that this would cause Texas’s economy to dwindle, people can only ban so much before it messes with their lifestyle. If you take away too many jobs, especially if you are a business you start losing money. Case in point, say Target closes shop in NC, they would lose all that money that they could have been making had they didn’t close their stores. Musicians that refuse to play in a certain state will lose any money it could have made in that state. While certainly closing stores down or concerts, it would damage the economy in that area for a time being but at the sake of petty talk, this is what is happening when people support transgender ideology.

Already transgender activism has destroyed lives and now is bent on destroying our way of living. And people are giving them the ammo to do further damage. Before Caitlyn Jenner and the bathroom issue, there was no harm done other than destroyed families. Everything was ok for the most part. But now with the transgender limelight which has sparked transgender rights and also now anti-transgender laws it is now damaging the economy. Sure you “could” blame the conservatives for writing such inane laws, but the only ones destroying the economy are those who are ‘boycotting’ said states or cities writing such anti-transgender laws. And in some cases, it’s the entire LGBT community and it’s because there is too much “i’ll sue you for not respecting the LGBT and baking that cake or endorsing same sex laws”. Most gay people i know don’t care about marriage, it’s a pointless way of showing how much you love someone and i tend to agree with that. Marriage is a sacred oath and unless you can’t live without that person in which i never experienced so my views on marriage is, i don’t need to get married.

Recently a transgender is trying to sue a Catholic hospital, Trans Woman Sues To Force Catholic Hospital To Remove Her Healthy Uterus
Despite having a religious belief to not accommodate transgenders, the hospital is not equipped to deal with transgenders. Meaning they do not provide adequate services to effectively work on transgenders. It’s like going to an auto part store and asking for a computer mouse. You go to the correct place and nowadays there is Google. It’s pretty simple to find what you are looking for and it sounds like this transgender purposely went to a Catholic Hospital knowing well enough that they do not provide services for transgenders. But it doesn’t stop the woman from trying. By the way the man is really a woman, so the article’s headline is wrong it’s “transgender man”. The lawsuit won’t stick, and even if it does and the Hospital gets sued, it shows there is either an agenda at work or the lawsuit is staged to scare other hospitals to get ‘educated on transgenders’ so they can provide treatment for them. So keep an eye on this story, because logically and legally it can only go one way, there isn’t a chance that this lawsuit will go through to the courts. IF it does make its way to the courts, something isn’t right… but a slight chance it may happen but it’ll end with the Catholic Hospital wining, if not yes.. something is amiss and that’s not a good sign.

Here’s some more links about the transgender insanity.

This one is particularly disturbing,
FOX COMEDY FEATURES 6YO ‘TRANS’ BOY WEARING BONDAGE GAG

Chances are that the transgender community will deny this and maybe they will because if this doesn’t upset people, i don’t think anything will. Most who are already against the transgender movement will most likely be upset over this as it’ll just fuel more to the fire and additional anti-transgender laws will come up. Eventually it will be illegal for children to transition (i had probably mentioned this before) but just wait until this show will have everyone talking about more than The Walking Dead. It’s only going to work one way and it won’t be what the transgender activism thinks.

This is actually going to be two different topics in one to make it easier, but first off here’s an interesting topic. http://abcnews.go.com/US/transgender-crisis-suicide-prevention-hotline-receives-record-number/story?id=43444126
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/11/us/politics/trump-victory-alarms-gay-and-transgender-groups.html

http://www.snopes.com/transgender-suicides-after-2016-election/

Well maybe mostly that the suicide hotline has been off the hook since Trump winning the election. The thing that really gets me is this,

Martela, who is trans herself, told ABC News today that “trans people already face blatant discrimination and harassment on a daily basis,” but many fear Trump’s “hateful campaign and rhetoric” could stir “more discrimination, more harassment and more violence than ever.”

Could it really get any worse? Maybe which is why it’s so necessary to stop pushing transgender equality onto everyone. Stop forcing parents to allowing their children to become transgender and schools should discourage the idea of transgender students. These parents made the decision to allow their kids to transition but yet the transgender community is so unstable right now and has been unstable since the beginning. Transgenders are 41% more likely to attempt suicide than the average person. Notice how transgenders are at the top of this list of the suicide hotline calls. The transgender community would like to have you believe that the suicide numbers is because they can’t transition but before or after it doesn’t really matter transgenders are high risk suicide victims. So ideally the only way is to avoid transitioning. This is why we have therapists, however as the professionals are pro transitioning and practically advocates of transgenders it’s hard to get some idealistic help from these people. It’s like trying to get help for a broken arm in an emergency room but the nurses and staff are just telling you to “get tough!” Just imagine that happening all the time. This is what is happening with transgenders, except that this is exactly what transgenders want, they want people to advocate their transitioning, their ideas that transgenders exist. So they are not exactly telling transgenders to get tough, just that there really isn’t a solution for these people. Transgenders are losing 6 against 1 but are still going against the grain.

I don’t think Trump will increase the violence and discrimination against transgenders but we’ll see. 2016 is apparently the worst year of transgenders. With Trump behind the wheel though we can only hope that professionals will put this transgender nonsense to an end and once and for all show that they were wrong in advocating transitioning.

Trump is president. Get over it, protesting and rioting will only show that America really needs Trump.

America is in trouble right now as protests around the world take place, rioting in some places as well, http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-37946231 and people are already getting beat up on the streets for voting Trump. While i’m not going to link everything on here mainly because there’s just so many articles on this election that it’s not even funny. Trump has already won alliances with Russia and strengthens ties with Israel and the stock market is higher than when Obama was in office. Seems investors think Trump will restore our economy and considering Trump is a businessman all bets are with Trump that our shambling, failing economy will be restored once Trump is inaugurated in office. Voters have faith that Trump will lower our national debt, http://www.usdebtclock.org/ which is continuing to increase. This is what Americans should be concerned with but so far i have seen “He’s not my president”, “Who would vote for a xenophobic, homophobic racist pig?”. This clearly shows how terrible America’s priorities are. I mean who cares if we get a president such as Hillary that won’t do anything for America’s economy but she’s pro LGBT!

Since Obama has been in office, religion in America has been under attack by the LGBT community, http://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/john-stonestreet/lgbt-rights-dispense-middle-ground-war-against-religious-freedom but Trump will help protect religious rights. Businesses will most likely be protected as well as the LGBT community has been going on a rampage ensuring everyone is pro LGBT. The LGBT community is also worried that Trump will reinstate the “Don’t ask don’t tell”. But does it really matter at this point? Not to mention people have had enough of the transgender acceptance “or you are a bigot” in which the transgender community is often regarding transphobic people as religious.

Obama’s biggest mistake was Obamacare, increasing the premiums 5 times the amount it was originally at forcing many Americans to pay the penalty tax for not having health insurance because they can’t afford it. Most people that get a nice tax return usually spends it or saves it for the stuff they needed that they couldn’t get because living by paycheck to paycheck trying to keep a roof and food on the table, in fact trying to keep a dinner table under the roof! In which is yet goes back to Trump is a businessman and will restore our economy.

Back to Obamacare, Trump isn’t going to completely remove it but it’s crazy that people would sign up for it knowing it’ll be altered, possibly made worse. http://fox6now.com/2016/11/10/americans-sign-up-for-obamacare-in-droves-after-trump-elected-president/ It’s really a strange phenomenon seeing as these people should have already been signed up instead of franctically signing up for it. After Trump meeting Obama instead of Trump attempting to completely dismantle Obamacare, Trump will make profound changes to make both sides happy. Already Trump will remove the healthcare tax penalty,

So what’s more likely to happen are changes including elimination of the mandate that everyone have insurance
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2016/11/09/much-obamacare-wont-likely-survive-but-key-parts/93542284/

Long as Trump can continue to improve the healthcare system that is all people really want. Healthcare was already a joke in America before Obama but his program didn’t really help much better especially for the Americans who had lost good healthcare premiums due to the Affordable Care Act.

The people protesting has not even given Trump a chance, they are too busy clinging onto the rhetoric hate Trump spouted during the election all the while is doing the very thing they claim to be fighting against, by saying “NeverTrump” and vandalising property. Trump didn’t destroy property, the protestors are. There is now hate in schools and on the streets but it’s not Trumps doing.
