Once again Democrats stay true to their name and propose a new tax to something that is finally becoming affordable again. Possibly because America is now exporting more oil than importing. Reuters reports: In a major shift, U.S. now exports more oil than it ships in. Could that be the cause of lower prices for ALL AMERICANS RICH AND POOR? The more it costs to ship the more it cost the consumer! This affects all Americans and Maybe, just maybe Trump is right AGAIN!
Illinois has a Union and Democrat problem! Don’t believe me? Any Elected Official would be violating the law right now criticizing a Union in Illinois, but the measure fell 1 vote short after Former Governor Rauner vetoed it. It passed both houses Yes, you heard me right. The Chicago Tribune reports in Challenge Illinois unions, go to jail. Seriously?
“The beverage tax (soon to be history, thankfully) seems a nuisance compared to a nasty corollary we saw recently employed by Democrats in Springfield: What we can’t tax, we’ll threaten with jail time.
It’s a disturbing worldview, but this is the political pattern in Illinois: Do everything to benefit those who can deliver money and campaign muscle. Everyone else, including most taxpayers and employers, can get lost.
Our example today is a pro-union bill in the Democrat-controlled General Assembly that would prevent Illinois municipalities from setting up right-to-work zones, in which employees in union-protected positions could choose whether to join and pay dues. For legislators who are tightly aligned with organized labor, the proposed ban hits the spot. But it apparently wasn’t enough of a hint to local officials and employers about who really runs Illinois. So the bill’s backers included a stunning clause that said any elected official who defies the state ban on right-to-work zones would be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
A Class A misdemeanor, if you’re wondering, is one step below a felony; it’s punishable by up to a year in jail. The outrageous message this bill sends to the world: Don’t even think of challenging organized labor in Illinois because we lock up troublemakers.”
So much for Free Speech! So now we get to the tax proposal on gasoline in Illinois. Just think the new Democratic Governor will sign this if it is proposed and passed again!
Former Obama Chief of staff and outgoing Mayor of Chicago attacks we the people of Illinois with a new 20-30 cent per gallon tax hike. Right when prices were falling and things get the economy gets moving a Democrat suggests to his fellow Democrats in Springfield we need our cut!!
If they get their way Illinois would have the highest gas tax in all of America! Illinois has the 10th highest gas taxes in the nation, according to the nonprofit Tax Foundation. A 30-cent hike would make Illinois’ total gas taxes the highest in the nation. Illinois’ total average tax burden on a gallon of fuel is 37.32 cents, according to figures from the American Petroleum Institute. At the proposed 67.32 cents per gallon, Illinois’ taxes would be higher than Pennsylvania’s average of 58.7 cents per gallon, the highest rate in the nation.
What is this for you may ask?
“We’re calling on the lawmakers, when they convene starting in January, to start to work on a number of issues that have not been addressed over the years, calling for an increase to the gas tax by 20 to 30 cents,” he said. “If you took the low range of the 20 to 30 cents that we’re talking about, the 20 cents would reflect just inflation.”
The money, Emanuel said, should go to fund a new infrastructure bill. Gov.-elect J.B. Pritzker has said the state needs a new transportation funding bill.”
This sounds so familiar, Here is a great article I found by Ron Hart: Where did the stimulus money go? Democrats are robbing we the People Blind. Notice who is involved:
“So where did all that sweet stimulus money go? Of the money spent in swing state Wisconsin, 80 percent went to public sector unions – those with already locked-in jobs. In fact, right-to-work states got $266 less per person in stimulus money than heavily unionized states. Where Democrats had a vast majority of representatives, their states got $460 per person more.
When Obama signed the stimulus bill in 2009, he promised it would provide “help for those hardest hit by our economic crisis.” Clearly, it did not. The states hurt the most, the ones with more foreclosures, unemployment, and bankruptcy, got less money than richer states closer to power. Washington, D.C. got the most stimulus money: $7,602 per capita.
The stimulus was a huge political slush fund with little accountability. Obama credits the passage of his stimulus bill to people having no idea how Democrats were going to spend the money.
Rich Democrat donors also got payback. The farcical “green” energy company Solyndra defaulted on more than half a billion dollars of our money, while Obama mega-donor George Kaiser finagled his interest ahead of ours. Other beneficiaries of Obama’s largesse for dubious deals include Larry Page and Sergey Brin (if you Google them you will find they founded Google) for Tesla Motors, NRG Solar owners Warren Buffet and Steve Cohen, and Siga Tech owner Ronald Pearlman. All told, more than 75 percent of stimulus grants and money for such “businesses” found their way to big Obama supporters.
Even creepy crony capitalist of the century Al Gore got his snout in the trough. His investment in Fisker Automotive scored a $528 million loan guarantee. Can you imagine the risks you could take if you were given $528 million that you were not personally on the hook for? Of course, all these businesses are tanking or have tanked already.”
Who else is tired of politicians wasting our hard earned money, new taxes and outright corruption. Here is what happens when you run against Mike Madigan’s man in Chicago. According to the Chicago Tribune, in A college kid running for 13th Ward alderman gets a lesson in the Chicago Way
“The history of the little guy being squashed by massive Chicago political clout at election time is just too long to print without weeping.
But the story for today is so amazing that some Chicago election officials have never seen the like.
“No one can remember anything approaching this,” said an election official.
It’s overkill of epic proportions, like using a sledgehammer to kill a gnat, or firing off a nuclear weapon to kill a sparrow. A Southwest Side David vs. Goliath story.
The David is David Krupa, 19, a freshman at DePaul University who drives a forklift part-time. He’s not a political powerhouse. He’s just a conservative Southwest Side teenager studying political science and economics who got it in his head to run for alderman in a race that pits him against the most powerful ward organization in Chicago.
The Goliath is the 13th Ward Democratic Organization run by House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, aka Boss Madigan, the most powerful politician in the state. Boss Madigan has long hand-picked his aldermen. He likes them loyal and quiet. The current silent alderman of the 13th Ward is Marty Quinn.”
“To get on the ballot, Krupa was required to file 473 valid signatures of ward residents with the Chicago Board of Elections. Krupa filed 1,703 signatures.
But before he filed his signatures with the elections board, an amazing thing happened along the Chicago Way.
An organized crew of political workers — or maybe just civic-minded individuals who care about reform — went door to door with official legal papers. They asked residents to sign an affidavit revoking their signature on Krupa’s petition.” Please click on the link above for the full story.
What is sad is that College kid will see no justice for the corruption and lawlessness he fell victim too. Justice in America lost all meaning under Dmeocratic rule. Who else is tired of Democrats running our Good American Name through the mud? The media and liberals shrills trash Trump every second of every day, yet their actions are those of traitors to America, not saviors!~RJH
