Illinois Democrats seem to think that all state residents are some kind of captive tax slaves, prevented by, say, an electric fence from picking up and moving to other states with more reasonable tax rates. Notwithstanding that the mobility of individuals and businesses in the face of greedy state governments has been shown time and time again, from New York to California, Illinois lawmakers recently passed two huge tax increases – a 67% personal income tax increase, and a 46% increase on businesses – that not only won’t attract people to the state, but will drive current residents away in droves.
I think where the Tea Party can make a huge difference is by getting involved at the grassroots level in states like Illinois. Change from the bottom up.
