Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Unemployment soars in Illinois after massive tax increase

Yet another chapter in the growing book of “How Liberals Are Economic Retards”.  At this rate, the book will never get finished, because these libtards never learn.  Details, with accompanying graph:

In a trend that continues to worsen, more Illinoisans found themselves unemployed in the month of July.

Illinois lost more jobs during the month of July than any other state in the nation, according to the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report. After losing 7,200 jobs in June, Illinois lost an additional 24,900 non-farm payroll jobs in July. The report also said Illinois’s unemployment rate climbed to 9.5 percent. This marks the third consecutive month of increases in the unemployment rate.

Illinois started to create jobs as the national economy began to recover. But just when Illinois’s economy seemed to be turning around, lawmakers passed record tax increases in January of this year. Since then, Illinois’s employment numbers have done nothing but decline.

 

I’m sure it’s just a big ol’ coinkidink that passage of a 67% income tax hike marked the beginning of the huge layoffs, right?

  1. No coinkidink here. It makes sense. Tax more, lose more jobs. A time proven method to discourage employment.
    One of my sisters lives in Illinoid, and, for the life of me I can’t figure out why she is still there. She was raised with better sense than to put up with that crap.
    Stupid liberals. Texas is gaining more population as the demonrats raise taxes where they can. Along with other states where the taxes are not so punitive on productivity. I think they will never learn.
