Yesterday, Lt. Governor Juliana Stratton threatened Illinois families with a massive 20% tax increase if voters don’t approve Governor Pritzker’s tax hike amendment. According to the Pritzker administration, Illinoisans are faced with either voting for a tax increase or Springfield politicians will hike their taxes for them.

“Governor Pritzker and his administration’s only answer to Illinois’ fiscal issues is raising taxes to historic levels on the hardworking families of Illinois,” said Kayleen Carlson, executive director of Illinois Rising Action. “This latest tactic from the Pritzker team, to threaten families with a massive tax increase to cover a budget deficit that is Springfield’s own making, wreaks of desperation. It’s time for Pritzker and his administration to finally make the hard fiscal decisions and stop looking for a bailout from Illinois taxpayers.”
