The answer is YES! First, they raised out sales tax, utility tax and gas tax to the top 3 highest in the nation. Then they raise the income tax to the top five highest on the middle class (yes some are higher, like CA goes to 10%, but on $1 million and up, in IL you could make $10K a year and get taxed at 5%). Then they raised out corporate tax to the HIGHEST IN THE WORLD. Now they want to raise our tolls, DOUBLE OUR TOLLS!!! Note: Going from the burbs to the city and you can go through as many as 6 tolls!!!

The tolls were started as a TEMPORARY program to pay for the building of the highways. Then Blago raised the rates on all non-IPASS users, with the quote, "This is to encourage IPASS usage and WILL NOT be used a a means to raise tolls overall!"

What 3 years later tolls are GOING UP on everyone! If only my wife would allow me and pick up the family and move to TX or AZ like I want to!!!

Chicago is a world class fun city. No better freshwater beaches in the world than Chictown. The restaurants are second to none. Great bike paths in the city. The Museum are great. We have two AMAZING Zoo. The Shed is the BEST acquirum in the world. Grant park is awesome. There is nothing more fun than tail-gating at Bears games. Navy Pier is a blast. Fat people love the Taste of Chicago. We have a ton of great street fest and art fairs. Bear, Bulls, Cubs, Blackhawks, Fire and even the Suxs!

Yet liberals want to destroy the state, by driving out business and taxing the people in revolt!

Illinois has been run by democrats for decades along with other states that are watching the hoard of residents move out--because of high fees and taxes.

New Jersey lost 70 BILLION in state tax revenue in 5 years--because the wealthy in that state had--had enough--so they moved.

N.J. loses $70B in wealth during five years as residents depart | NJ.com

Raising taxes doesn't lead to balanced budgets. It only leads to more tax increases.
This has been demonstrated over and over again. You'd think even a Democrat would have figured this out by now.

I said buh bye to NYC in 1993.... I don't miss the place one fucking bit.

I am making more here in New Orleans, the cost of living is much less, taxes are MUCH less, and you don't have to deal with the endless nanny-state.

Toll Roads??!!! How primitive. Is there a charge to use a public bathroom as well?:lol:

But yeah, I call that as direct of tax as one can get. Just imagine if a private entity owned those toll roads.

Taking an alternate route won't cost you anything. You think a righty would have figured that out by now.

Comrade! Do not despair! In People's Democratic Socialist Republic of Illinois, is great honor to pay road tolls! Higher tolls further the cause of Revolution and allow workers to get to fields and factories so much quicker than fat lazy decadent bourgeoisie Hoosiers!

Now, Comrade, arise! Start your engine, open your wallet, and drive on to glorious future!

Yep tools, fees, etc will go up. And writing tickets will be viewed more as a revenue source as well.
It is inevitable.

I hate to say it...but i got to laugh a bit here.

The bridge tolls here are 5-6 dollars.... depending on where you live you could have to cross two bridges in a commute.

Tolls going up by 35 cents? I wish we had it so good. :)
