Escape Illinois: Get The Hell Out Now, We Are

Date: Sunday, October 6, 2019 11:14 PM EDT

The Illinois Policy Institute comments on what to expect.

The last state to implement a plan similar to Pritzker’s was Connecticut in 1996. State lawmakers made the same promises of middle-class tax cuts, property tax relief and increased spending on social services. Those promises were broken. In fact, the typical Connecticut family has seen a 13% hike in their income tax rates since the implementation of Connecticut’s progressive tax, property tax burdens increased 35%, and the poverty rate increased 47% during the 10 years following the passage of their progressive tax.

Get the H Out

The alleged "fair" tax is anything but.

And it will not stop here.

Finally! Out of this Progressive Socialist Hellhole

We are out of here. Can't take it anymore.

We pay close to $15,000 a year in property taxes on a home worth about $400,000.

Firm plans in place to move to Southern Utah in 2020.

Why Southern Utah?

  • North Rim Grand Canyon, Bryce, Glen Canyon, Great Basin National Parks just 2-3 hours away
  • Zion National Park about 40 minutes away
  • Capital Reef National 3 hours away
  • Death Valley National Park 4 hours
  • Arches and Caynonlands National Parks 5 hours
  • Joshua Tree National Park 6 hours
  • Mono Lake 6.5 hours
  • Many excellent state parks nearby within an hour
  • Las Vegas Airport about 2 hours away with cheap shuttles

In short, lower taxes, higher quality of life, escape from absurd property taxes.

Other states have lower property taxes or income taxes, but those national parks are a huge photo attraction.
