    Illinois Loses Most Jobs in Nation Following Tax Hikes - Page 1 - Mike Shedlock - Townhall Finance

    Thanks to Illinois governor Pat Quinn and the Illinois legislature Illinois Loses Most Jobs in the Nation

    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.

    Is that one of those optical illusions? The right half of the graph is darker so it makes the line look like it's declining?

    Leftists will refuse to accept that their policies led directly to this. They will instead blame "the rich" as programmed.

    Hold on a second. Does the 'jobs' number include Mafia employees?

    Correlation doesn't prove causation.

    If you can prove causation by all means do.
