Democrats Squeeze Taxpayers After $53.1 Billion Budget Passes General Assembly

News from

State Representative Chris Miller

Springfield, IL… State Representative Chris Miller (R-Hindsboro) released the following statement after the $53.1 billion state budget passed through the General Assembly.

“This so-called balanced budget crafted by radical Democrats behind closed doors is $2.6 billion more than last year’s budget. The hungry spending spree continues, and the mission is to improve the quality of life for illegal immigrants at the expense of hard-working American families across Illinois. Taxpayers are left behind again by Pritzker & Co at a time when goods and services are at an all-time high. The Biden administration is failing our country, and Pritzker is failing our state because he’s a denier and cares more about playing political games than creating a better life for Illinois residents.”

“The Governor has more power to transfer funds from their intended purposes to hide his progressive agenda of spending nearly $1 billion on creating a welfare state, universal healthcare, and socialist policies. Republicans have prioritized tax relief, reduced spending, improving public safety, and putting Illinois residents first but the radical Democrats have one priority and that’s ruining our great state with poor public policies and using taxpayers as an ATM.”
