This is what the welfare state looks like. The formerly great state of Illinois, having thoroughly run its budget into the ground, is considering digging an even deeper hole by raising taxes. Exactly the shot in the arm the economy needs!
Of course, public sector unions are in full-throttle support of the tax grab. (No recession for those that live off taxpayers.) On Wednesday, a phalanx of public sector employees, including SEIU, Illinois Education Association, Illinois Federation of Teachers, AFSCME, and AFL-CIO, rallied in support of the tax hike in the capital, Springfield.
Yes, this woman is responsible for educating some number of your children. Her chant goes to the heart of what’s wrong with our public school system…it is designed for the adults in the system, i.e. teachers and not the children.
The task at hand is even bigger than we feared.
Your tax dollars are supporting these marches to hike your taxes more.
It is your civic duty to stop this madness.
In case you missed it, please also take a look at 15,000 Illinois Protesters Chant “Raise My Taxes”; Unions Getting More Aggressive and Obnoxious; Record Turnout in N.J. Tells Unions to Go to Hell for another “must see” video.
The way to help stop the madness is to not vote for any candidate winning the endorsement of any public union, and to vote out of office any member in any public office who wants to raise your taxes.
