When people see a near doubling of their state income tax where every cent goes straight to “somebody else’s” pension, the exodus will increase. The last attempt at a 5% rate left the state empirically even worse. As any such increase only gets flushed into the vacuum left by decades of mismanagement and debt, debt guaranteed by laws and favors implementing what amounts to the serfdom of the private sector in Illinois, where “public service” has turned into the public servicing bought votes.
