Gov. Bruce Rauner on Thursday said he is “not a fan” of collecting taxes on Illinoisans’ retirement income, an idea that’s seen pushback in a stream of radio spots, print ads and robocalls in recent days.
Illinoisans don’t like how they’re being disrespected by their politicians – paying ever-higher taxes for ever-fewer services. So they leave.One of those people leaving is a North Shore neighbor of mine moving to Colorado. For him, the calculus was simple. Stay and pay more and more for a government he trusts less and less, or leave and save $1 million dollars.
