New Governor - New Tax Hike

Lt. Governor Patrick Quinn was sworn a little while ago.

He has promised to raise state income taxes shortly. He's already asking for "sacrifices."

Lisa Madigan is now the front runner for the next election.

Governor Quinn will raise the state income tax to 6.5% from the current 3% and he also wants to raise the state income tax and gasoline tax.

Keep voting Democrat and giving away the fruits of your labor to those who won't work.

I am no fan of paying higher taxes but I really like this Pat Quinn. He has shown time and time again he is not one of those democratic party pricks. He has inherited a huge list of problems and I say give him a chance.

Lisa Madigan is nothing but an extension of the Chicago democratic machine of Richie, Michael Madigan and the rest of them you are always complaining about.

Oh, joy; coming up on two years without a contract or a raise, but the cost of living here keeps going up, to the point of insanity.

TAX TAX AND TAX SOME MORE! That's all they know how to do. Will FOP make sure that our raise will reflect the surge in cost of living and now the income tax increase? Why would anyone want to live or buy products here? Now, if you go shopping in chicago you pay a fortune to park and then they hammer you with a crazy high sales tax. Just go to the suburbs and park for free, pay less for products and get taxed less. Government is out of control! For some reason they think they can tax themselves into prosparity! How about cutting government programs first and wasteful spending? It's grade school economics. People will go to where they can get the best deal and chicago, cook county, and Illinois aren't it!

The republican party of illinois is now officially brain dead.

If the republicans actually believed that ousting blago was going to help them resurrect the barely breathing remnants of their party, they've sorely underestimated the abilities of the daley and madigan crime families.

The only thing that can possibly help the republicans is if blago lives to, figuratively speaking, spill his guts to the feds, and that only if the feds aren't already under the control of the daley/madigan crime families.


So, the republicans have chosen to bet on that long shot, rather than pull the old switcheroo on the democrats and allow blago to remain to serve out what little of his term the impending federal indictments would have allowed him to.

The republicans need to study the works of Machiavelli, as the democrats have been doing so for decades.

I am begining to really hate this what was once, our great state of good ole Illinois.

You know the more I work, the more they take. The hard working, tax paying, non criminal, good hearted, true blood American gets fucked more and more.

How about Chicago and Illinois stop the abuse of Social Security and Disability and Public Housing and Foot Stamps and Baby Sitting Checks and discounted phone, electric, gas, rent, etc. We all know about hte abuse but nobody is doing a damn thing to stop it or even slow it down. Fuck these motherfuckers that sit on their asses and get everything for free and dont work a single day in their entire life. They just keep pumping out babies and living scott free off the working man. Governor Jesse Ventura had the right idea. Jesse come to Illinois and run for Governor or at least Mayor and bump deep pockets Daley off his high horse.

God forbid we reform the welfare system and save the actual taxpayers some money. How much of our tax money is spent on link card booze and cigarette purchases alone? I'm guessing in the hundreds of millions a year.

why dont they do what arnold in ca did, all state employees take off 2 days per month.

how hard is that. no layoffs.

we know the government payroll is bloted at every level. this wont hurt the state workers at all.

i would make it a 4 day work week every week. 20% reduction in the state labor expense in one simple order.

again, no one gets laid off and we keep taxes at current level and help pay down bills.

but why would they do that? all these politicians care about is themselves.

only way to cut their spending is to stop paying taxes.

I call for a general state wide labor strike on may day. state wide sit in. all 11 million people in Illinois send a message by bringing the state to a stand still and protest the taxation without representation.

times have changed. the global economy has changed. to many people chasing to few goods.

if the government taxation and waste cycle does not change in this country this could be the begining of the end.

THE POLITICIANS ARE PUTTING THEIR INTERESTED BEFORE THE REPUBLIC.

WHERE WILL THE MONEY COME FORM? I HAVE NONE LEFT. CANT PAY MY BILLS, MORTGAGE, HAVE NOT PAID MY REAL ESTATE TAXES, SHORT ON FOOD, KIDS SKIPPING MEALS.

GOD HELP THEM WHEN THEY START COMING TO TAKE PEOPLES HOUSES.

I WILL BE OK. HAVE THE MEANS TO GET THE BILLS PAID. GREAT WEIGH LOSS PROGRAM POVERTY IS.

see the news about the guy in ca who killed self and whole family?

look for more of this to happen.

I just love how some of you Rush Limbaugh and Fox News types assign all of the blame to the Democrats. Don't you get it? It's the entire system (including Democrats AND Republicans).

Democrats believe in taxing and spending. Republicans believe in borrowing and then spending. Can you please really tell me the REAL DIFFERENCE between Democrats and Republicans? And please spare me abortion, God, guns, gays, etc... (those are all phony issues both parties use to make us people think there is a difference).

Our country is so damn fucked up right now. If we want real change, then we need to throw those two parties out of power. Washington D.C. is doing everything in their power to work against the people's interests and what do we do? We elect a Democrat, and then if we are really upset, we will end up voting for a Republican. And then once we are tired of that party, we will switch back to a Democrat!

"Businesses interested in tapping into the $5 billion buying power of Utah's exploding Hispanic market would do well to attend the Third Annual Hispanic Marketing Conference, to be held March 5 at the Salt Lake Hilton, downtown.

"Sandra Plazas, vice-president of HMC La Agency, which is hosting the event, says this is the #1 conference for businesses interested in creating or expanding their Hispanic marketing initiatives.

25 years as the Police- yeah this job sucks for all of the reasons brought up daily....Check out the Want-Ads (On-Line & Print)....See anything worth giving this job up for? Fortune 500 Companies laying off, Circuit City, Home Depot...and others closing down.

I'm KMA, and that does not matter. What is important to me is that everyone on the watch goes home with no extra holes in their body.

There are issues in this Department far out of our reach...or the reach of Sgts., Lt's,W/C's,and most bosses (Blue's Clue..."City Hall")

All we have is us, ourselves, THE POLICE. We need to stick together...no better sight and sound than that of blue lights and sirens when you call for help.

Remember the reasons why you took this job (job security, benefits, save the world...whatever...), and the oath that we all swore to, and to each other-and place the politicians, rev's, and news media in the shit can.

J-Fed is a joke along with his whole crew of merry men, throw in city hall, taxes, nitwits...etc....etc...

I hope that now Gov. Quinn will lift this State up from a laughing stock to something some what respectable....he's a very strong advocate of our Military and Vets.Just please don't tax the shit out of us.

Bottom Line-Stay Safe and Back Each Other Up

Wrong. Taxes, in any form, are always passed down to the lowest denominator. That's you and me or those that work for a living. How does raising State income or sales taxes leave you out? Don't kid yourself, it means less for you and more handouts to those that do not work.It's called socialism and we are all going to get a big fat dose of it from this State and the Feds. The new Governor is just better at acting than the old, they are all the same. All we saw here today was Swine eating the flesh of one of their own.

There are 41 states in which residents pay state income tax. OF THE STATES THAT HAVE STATE INCOME TAX - ILLINOIS IS THE LOWEST!!! Raise the state income tax - finance pensions, provide propoerty tax relieve, properly fund schools, etc. P.S. - My children go to Catholic schools. However, funding of public education is paramount.

Tax increases, even those affecting the rich (over $250k) are detrimental. When you tax the poor, it's not fair. When you tax the middle class, you are jeopardizing your workforce. When you tax the rich, where's the incentive to do business? When you tax those approaching the threshold of 250k, what's their incentive to achieve more and keep reinvesting?

In short, taxes suck. Daley/Quinn have never heard of the Laffer Curve - no Democrat has.

There are some things government can do, but won't.
1) Cut their salaries - esp the big 6-figure incomes. They are public servants, remember?
2) Unpaid furlough days.
3) Slash aldermanic districts by half.
4) Stop paying out lawsuit rewards/settlements.
5) Stop or limit welfare programs. It'd be cheaper to hire an investigative team and cut off the leaches, find the people out of work jobs or job training. I'd rather be paying to teach Pookie how to dig a ditch than pay for his booze and smokes. If he doesn't want to work, he can starve.
6) Give up on the olympics, and pretty projects like flower boxes. Offer to make a sign honoring the business that sponsors the gardening in the flower pots - a lot cheaper than paying for landscapers year round.
7) No more take-home cars for city workers unless their job justifies the need for one (city clerk? No way).
8) CPS needs an overhaul. If there was ever a definition of "waste" they are it. They buy shit just for the sake of buying it, then never use it. If animal kids don't want to learn, don't teach them. You can't force stupid people to get a clue, and it shouldn't be an educator's job anyway. Let the parents do it. If they don't want to, they have only themselves to blame. Poverty is a mindset, and it's not anyone's job to help these people. The tools are there, they'd rather just march and complain.
9) Legalize CCW for law-abiding citizens. That'll take the pressure off of you guys, and make a little money on the side for licensing. I'd totally pay $100/year to defend myself with lethal force if necessary.
10) Get rid of gun registration. Pointless waste of money and an infringement of rights. I'd like to know just how many "crimes" this database has solved - any takers?

Most major cities go democratic because of the support for and of union and other blue collar workers. Ours just happens to give the short end of the stick to police, you can thank a lazy FOP working with Shortshanks for that. Bloomberg is an independent.

There are 41 states in which residents pay state income tax. OF THE STATES THAT HAVE STATE INCOME TAX - ILLINOIS IS THE LOWEST!!! Raise the state income tax - finance pensions, provide propoerty tax relieve, properly fund schools, etc. P.S. - My children go to Catholic schools. However, funding of public education is paramount. Illinois ranks 49th in funding public education.
--------------------------
Why do we need to raise taxes on working people to fix these problems? Why don't we reform welfare and use the billions of dollars we would save instead? Why do the working members of society have to pay more to support people that REFUSE to work and live as irresponsibly as humanly possible? Lastly why don't we hold parents accountable for their children's education? Do you really think funneling more money into Manley for example would make a difference?

Dear Moronic Democrat,

Let us look at states that are run by Republicans; Texas, Utah, Vermont, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Nevada, Minnesota, Mississippi, Louisiana, Indiana, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Connecticut, California, Alabama, Alaska, and Arizona. These States are actually nice, I have been to them even recently, read about the sales taxes, property taxes, and State income taxes they are surprisingly the lowest in the Nation (Minus the Retards in California). I know you are probably a political genius like every other idiot that votes Democrat. The Dems, if you haven't figured this out yet, are for giving the poor everything. Screw the poor, I could care less, I work...and before I was the police I worked harder. The government didn't help me, even when I asked....I was told by the lady at the desk I was the wrong skin color. (For all you morons out there that skin color would be WHITE) 11 of those states I am currently looking into lateral transfers for Law Enforcement due to the fact that the DEMOCRAT mayor can't get us safe equipment (vehicles) taxes the shit out of me whether it be the $75-$150 City Sticker, Bottled water tax, parking rates, the fact that the DEMOCRAT County President continues to strong arm me for property taxes even though I receive NOT ONE service from the County, and the fact that another DEMOCRAT Governor is going to strong arm me for more of my hard earned money, and the now DEMOCRAT President is going to raise my Income tax to help the Fucking Useless non taxpaying, should be hunted (open season until the population drops to an acceptable number) illegal aliens, and to help pay for the ACORN to give more money to the residents of Englewood, Gresham, and every other shitball ghetto in this City once again while the people that actually contribute to society by working, paying taxes, not sucking off of social security, and not stealing the precious air that I and my family breathes...gets more shit handed to them. So keep on voting Democrat, moron, keep on saying us Rush Limbaugh types and so on. Do I listen to Rush? Occasionally, but after I actually Honorably served my Country (which I am sure you didn't) I realized just how retarded the Democrats where when that useless piece of shit Clinton came into Power. So, I am sure you also work in some yuppie district and go to work in your perfectly pressed uniform wearing your little Yuppie Square glasses, and tell everyone how great it is and about the war stories that you have earned over the years (like the time the guy ran from your for pissing on the public way) or you are just another mutt in a uniform that drives your $70000 SUV, that of course is financed for 70% over 40 years, while you live in the Ghetto, using the cop on a block program to once again have a crutch to pay for a place, not caring what schools your 10 kids go to or the fact that your neighbor (who you are probably best friends with) is selling dope or shooting off of his front porch every night. So don't tell me that the only difference that I as a republican I see is guns abortion and what ever other cock a mamie bullshit you pulled out of your ass. While on the subject of Guns, I think everyone that isn't a convicted felon (so 90% of the ghetto is out even though they own them anyways) should own guns. Seeing that the invading hordes that live on the west side, the southside and are scattered about the north side, are always looking for a hand out you may catch them trying to break into your house, rob or rape your wife, kidnap your kids or whatever else they try to do, one should have the right to defend themselves. Next time go do your homework.

In case you hadn't noticed, there are no laws prohibiting paragraph breaks.

And paragraph breaks are also not restricted by law to when you've completely finished a specific thought you are trying to coherently express.

In fact, if your posting is an expression of your intent, and/or desire, to share your thoughts with others, your comment of over 600+ words could have been rendered much more reader friendly, had you broken it into, say, 5 - 6 paragraphs.

As it appears, being practically one, 600+ word long sentence, it reminded me of trying to read the ingredients listing on a box of cookies.

A generous use of the 'enter' key will assist you in posting a comment that is much more likely to be read in it's entirety.

They’ll get it . . . they’ll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this fuckin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in The big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good honest hard-working people . . . white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means . . . continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you . . . they don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all . . . at all . . . at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream cause you have to be asleep to believe it . . .”

So most of these states charge more for taxes or are propped up by an industry that takes the burden off the citizen.

Everyone wants something for nothing-good infrastructure will cost money the same way good schools and hospitals do. I wouldn't object to a tax increase as long as it's going to what it's supposed to instead of lining some politician's pocket.

Just be glad you're not in Wisconsin- 11%!

>>>"10) Get rid of gun registration. Pointless waste of money and an infringement of rights. I'd like to know just how many "crimes" this database has solved - any takers?<<<


Gun registration is a money maker. Why is it that it is still using forms and photos and not computer imputs. To keep the money flowing in, not out.

Maybe a few guns recovered and turned over to their rightful owners, a few who were stupid or too enraged to used some other than what was registered to them.
