Ideas Illinois launches digital ad asking voters if they trust Madigan & Pritzker with a blank check

Ad comes as Pritzker & Madigan seek passage of massive Jobs Tax on middle class families and small businesses

Ideas Illinois today launched a digital ad asking voters if they trust Speaker Madigan & Governor Pritzker with a blank check when it comes to their taxes.  

“The bottom line is we simply cannot trust Speaker Madigan and Governor Pritzker with a blank check when it comes to raising taxes,” Ideas Illinois Chairman Greg Baise said. 

SCRIPT: 

There’s a debate going on about Illinois’ tax system.

The latest sales pitch from Springfield insiders?

Pritzker and Madigan want to change the constitution to allow a permanent jobs tax on middle class families.

‘Trust us,’ they say: we’ll use your money to fund our schools, fix our roads, shore up pensions and cut property taxes. 

Do you trust them? 

In the last 8 years these same Springfield insiders handed us two of the largest tax hikes in history.

…promising these tax hikes would solve all problems. But nothing changed. 

We’re still burdened with debt – schools are underfunded – roads and bridges, crumbling – property taxes, still sky-rocketing. 

But here they go again, asking you to pay more.

They’re putting a constitutional amendment on your 2020 ballot, paving the way for their jobs tax on the middle class. 

It won’t say how much you’ll pay: a blank check for Springfield. Pritzker and Madigan want you to trust them to do the right thing.

But they broke their promise before… and they’ll do it again, if we trust them again. 

Not this time.
