Pritzker Needs To Give Emergency Relief To Taxpayers

Chicago- As the Coronavirus known as Covid-19 sweeps over the United States, calls for Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker to give emergency relief to taxpayers are escalating.

“According to basic economic theory, in times of crisis and recession, you cut taxes,” said Jim Tobin, economist and president of Taxpayers United of America (TUA). “Covid-19 is a crisis that will slow economic growth. The intelligent move for Pritzker is to ask the Illinois General Assembly to pass emergency tax cuts as soon as they are back in session and sign the bill immediately. Otherwise, we may see unnecessary hardship for Illinois middle-class taxpayers.”

“Businesses are already telling employees to stay home, or are closing entirely because of Covid-19,” continued Tobin. “I have also heard that bureaucrats are considering shutting down the Chicago transit system. If middle-class taxpayers are unable to work, they will have trouble paying their mortgage, let alone their property taxes.”

“Pritzker is always going on about a ‘fair tax’ on taxpayers. If Pritzker believes what he says, he will call for and pass emergency tax relief measures. Otherwise, Pritzker will reveal what he really is: a gangster kicking a man while he’s down, and stealing from him everything of value.”
