Sen. Rezin doubles down on her tax opposition
Longtime Republican state Sen. Sue Rezin (Morris) recently took to social media to reaffirm her opposition to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s progressive tax plan.
“I’ve said all along, my main concern with the graduated income tax proposal is the lack of protections in place to ensure that the rates won’t affect the middle class,” Rezin recently posted on Twitter. “When the government needs more money, which it will, eventually the middle class will be the ones footing the bill.”
Rezin said she can see the handwriting on the wall in the way the proposed bill has already changed from what Pritzker was selling on the campaign trail, when he insisted that only the state’s wealthiest residents will be left to pay more under the plan.
“The proposed graduated rates have already changed from what the governor proposed a few weeks ago,” she added.
Rezin’s 38th District includes Bureau, Putnam, LaSalle, Grundy and Kendall counties.
