Sickening. It makes me sick that I have to be subjected to higher income taxes because of Democratic ineptitude and excess.

Few if any of those were paid with state or federal taxes.

I feel bad for the Illinois taxpayers who live outside Chicago. From what I read only two counties in the state (including Cook) voted to re-elect this Democrat Governor. But because Chicago/Cook County is so heavily populated it had enough influence to decide this election. This Governor all along said he would raise taxes but nobody knew it would be by this drastic of an amount.

And watch those middle class families pack up and leave for greener, less expensive pastures.
