Oak Park-The “Illinois Tax Solutions Forum” presented by AARP, which is staunchly supporting the graduated income tax increase amendment, was a complete flop.
“Very few people were there,” said Val Zimnicki, Taxpayers United of America (TUA) Director of Outreach. “Even with the Full-Page ad in the Chicago Sun Times, I counted only 33 people.”
“I am glad the event flopped,” said Jim Tobin, TUA President. “Not only did AARP present the debate, they also actively participated in it and sided against taxpayers. The fact that tax thieves are starting to peddle propaganda so early indicates their desperation.”
“Two years ago, Illinois passed a $5 billion dollar income tax increase that went exclusively to paying lavish government pensions. Now Springfield, led by Governor Pritzker is coming back for more. Illinoisans will have the opportunity on Tuesday November 3, 2020 to tell these greedy politicians that enough is enough.”
