Not Now, Not Ever



Unnamed (1)

We keep hearing the phrase, “now more than ever” in advertisements, PSAs, and everyday conversation. People need support now more than ever, doctors and nurses need PPE now more than ever, we need to reach out to our elderly neighbors and family now more than ever, and the unsung heroes such as grocery store workers, delivery and truck drivers should be praised and thanked now more than ever.

Gov. Pritzker has also adopted the phrase for his political purposes as he doubles down on his ill-advised tax hike campaign. When asked about removing the graduated income tax from the ballot, Pritzker responded, “I would argue, in a way that we may need it now more than ever.”

Despite the 750,000 unemployment claims filed in Illinois and the “closed” signs you see on your favorite local businesses, Gov. Pritzker still thinks it’s a good idea to raise taxes on the state’s number one job creators. As Jared Carl, President of the Illinois Business Alliance said, “Now more than ever people need jobs.” And they won’t have jobs to go back to if small businesses are taxed out of existence.
