Lieutenant Governor Sanguinetti and republican legislators are in Peoria Wednesday to talk about JB Pritzker’s tax plan.
The GOP conference says that the “theme of Pritzker’s campaign” has called for a graduated income tax hike, which they say will crush the middle class and be a disaster for the state.
“We need to know wether were are going to end up paying more. The guidance that we are receiving from the legislature is that as middle class people in Illinois this is a tax hike on all of our backs which we cannot afford.”
Prtizker says the tax hike will affect the rich like he and Governor Rauner and reduce the burden on the middle class.
Republicans say the new taxes will hurt everyone.
