The lady who runs the cafeteria in my office building owns investment property that she rents out – she is sick and tired of having her investment ruined by Pritzker! She wants to know why she has to pay taxes if her ‘tenant’ doesn’t have to pay rent?

This is just the Left doing what the Left does; destroying property rights and the economy.

Under the justification that Pritzker used in this case, couldn’t you make a justification for ANY eviction at any time? Isn’t anyone who is being evicted a hard luck case that has negative consequences for all involved?

Owning property in Illinois is like owning property in a communist 3rd world state. If the unions don’t tax it away from you, the judges and politicians will just eventually make up case law and steal it that way.

These people are completely oblivious to the consequences of their actions. Landlords will now just require greater security deposits, or will force people to pledge collateral, when signing a lease. Or just won’t rent at all because of the increased risk of this kind of nonsense going forward.

I have no faith in the State’s Judiciary or our States ‘so called’ leaders. Pray for the best but prepare for the worst. I pray for my State.

Praying is good. So is moving to another state. They are not mutually exclusive.

I agree with mike. Help yourself by relocating. Illinoisans can free themselves from this unmanageable debt simply by relocating. Your children will thank you.
