Statement from Ideas Illinois Chairman Greg Baise on Passage of Unfair Jobs Tax:

“From the day Governor Pritzker proposed his radically unfair Jobs Tax on middle class families, we knew he and Speaker Madigan would do everything in their power to jam it through the General Assembly in order to feed their ravenous spending habits.

“Over the course of the next year-and-a-half Speaker Madigan and Governor Pritzker will spin this tax a million ways calling it “fair” but not once will they call it what it really is: a blank check for the politicians in Springfield signed by Illinois families.

“Speaker Madigan and Governor Pritzker will say a lot in the months ahead, but what they won’t tell voters is that those states who have passed similar methods of taxation have seen job creators flee in droves and passage of this tax will be one more nail in the coffin of the Illinois economy.”
