Thread: Jeanne Ives is running for Governor of Illinois

  1. #1

    Default Jeanne Ives is running for Governor of Illinois

    Taxation is theft, and Illinois steals a lot from homeowners. Ives will return more of what has been stolen back to you if you're an Illinois resident. I've personally donated four figures to her campaign for liberty.

    The ESTJ is generally very opinionated, and likes to appear authoritative and in charge. They may temper this tendency when around other ESTJs whom they value. Around other types, this tendency may cause them to be abrupt and direct, to the point where they inadvertantly step on people's toes.

    Jim,
    I know the state takes a lot in income taxes (and their cut of sales taxes), but I'm looking at my property tax bill and don't see anything going directly to the state. My big hitters are local school taxes, which together amount to almost 70% of my tax bill. Maybe it's state mandates on education that you're referring to?

    I pay my income taxes to Missouri, since I work across the border ... and honestly, I'd be getting a better tax rate if I were able to pay in Illinois (even after last year's tax rate increases).

    Mind you ... anything above 0% is too much.
    The only easy day was yesterday.

    Well, candidate Ives has disavowed me and returned my donation, so perhaps she lacks the spine to stand up to the usurious thieves that are destroying the working class households of Illinois.

    I do like her latest campaign ad, however.

    "Rauner let Republicans surrender to Madigan on the income tax hike"
    I'm not a fan of Rauner, but I'm trying to figure out how he "let" Republicans surrender on the income tax. He vetoed the income tax increase and the legislature over-rode the veto. If you want the income reduced, you've got to elect legislators that will reduce it. Granted, you need a governor that will approve the reduction, but Rauner is already on that bandwagon.

    I'm still trying to figure out the "reduction in property tax" plank in her platform. Property taxes are a local issue and the battle ought to be fought at that level. Hell, my property taxes have decreased 5% in the last decade ... so I'd just as soon keep the state from meddling in local affairs.
