Fatass Tax Hike
What he isn't telling you during all those commercials attempting to stoke "class envy:"
So I just saw a commercial for the fair tax act. Claims that 97% of Illinois will pay the same or less taxes. Also says at the end, "Who should pay the tax? You or thebillionaires?" So this led to some research.
How many billionaires are in IL? The answer is 18. Yes only 18 billionaires in our state and we should believe they will pay all this tax?
Now the real kicker. Of those 18 billionaires, 6 of them share the same last name:
Yes it's true. 30% of our billionaires are in his family. Is Illinois that stupid to believe he wants to increase tax on only his family?
Wake up. Do some research and vote NO on this nonsense fair tax scam.
We're assuming this is some sort of social media post - it came to us as a disjointed paragraph, so we added line breaks to make it look better.
A quick Google search shows that there are only 18 billionaires in Illinois, so that's factual at least. And each owns multiple houses here and elsewhere, so "moving out" to avoid Illinois taxes is a real possibility. Once that happens, Porky's tax moves down a few tiers. Pretty soon, it moves down a few more as the other ultra rich move or "move" out of Illinois.
