Illinois will now be collecting another dollar a pack tax on cigarettes. they are also charging three dollars per customer at strip clubs. They are also taking control (and the profits) from the video poker machines that keep allot of small bars in business. Of course, all of these are elective taxes. If you don't want to pay, don't do those things. However, the state has no right telling people what to do through taxes. I suggest a fair balance to the tax system. ALL political contributions should be charged a 100% matching tax. This would even apply to thirs party ads and super pacs. If you don't want to pay the tax, don't "donate" to a candidate. Does anyone really think taht corporations, special interests and the wealthy donate huge amounts of money without getting something in return? This is a real suggestion taht needs to be discussed.
