Take a look at WAND’s online poll asking, “Do you believe Gov. JB Pritzker’s budget proposal is the right move for Illinois?” 89% say no with 3,800 votes cast at this point. Online polls are very unscientific but, sheesh, that’s quite a margin.
It won’t get any better for Pritzker as reality and math sink in further, especially after he is forced, as we hope we will be, to get specific on his progressive tax panacea. It’s a hoax. And pity Chicago’s next mayor who will face similar realities.
