Illinois Lt. Governor Juliana Srtatton yesterday said if the proposed progressive tax increase fails in November, everyone will likely pay more. Stratton said taxpayers could face a 20-percent tax increase if the proposed tax on top-earners fails to get enough support. Voters in Illinois will decide on the progressive tax on the November ballot. Republicans in Springfield say Stratton’s message isn’t a sober look at the state’s finances, as much as it is a threat.
