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.
