In my previous post I referred to a tv ad paid for by the billionaires who oppose a progressive state income tax.
The ad featured a Park Ridge senior named Phyllis Barklow who actually pays no income tax on her retirement income. No retirement income is taxed in Illinois.
Instead, because of our flat tax, seniors do pay high property and sales taxes because the state can’t meet current expenses on current revenue.
I received a number of comments to this blog that included the addresses and phone numbers to Mrs. Barklow’s two homes, one in Scottsdale, Arizona and her home in Park Ridge.
I don’t think the problem is Mrs. Barklow and I don’t allow doxing on this blog.
I won’t publish comments that contain someone’s home addresses and phone number.
Don’t target Mrs. Barklow. Call and contact your friends to vote yes on Fair Tax.
