The Main Reasons Why Illinois Homeowners Are Hurting Versus Other State Residents

There are many reasons why Illinois taxpayers are worse off than residents of other states.

  • Illinois is in a financial crisis. The new governor of Illinois, JB Pritzker, seems to be clueless, incompetent and is expediting Illinois into bankruptcy
  • JB Pritzker’s solution to solving the financial mess of Illinois seems to be to raise taxes on anything he can think of
  • He recently doubled the state’s gas tax
  • Whatever he can think of, he thinks raising taxes is the solution
  • Pritzker is becoming increasingly unpopular among the voters
  • Pritzker recently approved legislation that gives Illinois lawmakers a raise why the state is on the verge of bankruptcy
  • There seems to be no end of rising property taxes
  • One thing Governor Pritzker does not realize is that it is not how much you make but rather what you spend
  • With increasing taxes, Pritzker has no intention of cutting spending
  • Actually, JB Pritzker is increasing spending

Many Illinoisans are becoming scared of Pritzker’s leadership skills and where he is taking the state to. Many are fleeing Illinois to lower-taxed states.
