Cook County Residents: Say NO to the Proposed +2\% Hike in Sales Tax sign now

Todd Stroger-Cook County President and his patronage loving cronies are at it again this time with a regressive tax hike scheme that would give Chicago-area residents and visitors the blues.





Cook County's sales tax would more than triple, pushing Chicago's rate to 11 percent, under a proposal Board President Todd Stroger wants commissioners to consider next week.





The plan -- To raise the tax from 0.75 percent to 2.75 percent. Additional taxes on electricity and natural gas already have been introduced.





Cook County Commissioner Joan Patricia Murphy proposed a sales hike Tuesday, saying the county has no other choice. Her plan would raise the county's sales tax to 2.75 percent -- a major jump over the existing 0.75 percent tax on retail goods. The increase would affect hotels and restaurants, as well. Diners would see a total of a 12 percent tax on their tabs.





Its just another case of a big spending politician looking to fleece both residents and visitors alike in order to needlessly grow government. Instead of living within their means like hard-working taxpayers are forced to do, the mindset of big-government advocates like this is to simply raise taxes to suit their spending appetite.





When will big spending politicians learn that enough is enough?





It is important that we fight this tax increase by calling Mr. Strogers office and opposing the Cook County Tax Grab!





Please call 312-603-6400 and tell Mr. Stroger NOT to increase taxes. You can also fax a letter to Mr. Strogers office at 312-443-4397.

Let Mr. Stoger and the other members of the Cook County Board of Commissioners know that this tax hike scheme will give those who live and frequent the windy-city the blues.
