Gov. Mitch Daniels: Illinois tax hikes good for Indiana


#1

Gov. Mitch Daniels thinks Illinois’ proposed 75 percent hike in its corporate and personal income tax rates will be great – for Indiana.
In an exclusive interview Friday with The Times, the Republican governor said he looks forward to welcoming to the Hoosier State any Illinois business or resident that wants to pay less in taxes.
“We already had an edge on Illinois in terms of the cost of doing business, and this is going to make it significantly wider,” Daniels said.

Overall, Mitch Daniels has been a successful Governor. There are two issues that really rubbed my the wrong with him but, at this time, I would seriously consider voting for him if he were on the presidential ticket.

Elsewhere on this site, I posted a photo of him handing my wife her certificate of US Citizenship.

They should be advertising the Indiana taxes are 100,000x the rate of Illinois taxes.

Retards from Chicago will move there and turn Indiana into another Chicago.

My solution for Chicago, the north east (except some of New Hampshire, including the coast down to Washington DC) and nearly the entire population of Denver:

Head towards the nearest body of water

I suppose people from… all the rest of Illinois, except East St. Louis, could be invited to Indiana. If you look at election maps, all of Illinois outside of Chicago is as republican as can be.

Mitch Daniels has the exact same problem as the most other presidential candidates (especially the ones from the corn belt):

He has supported extreme ethanol subsidies and even taken part in some shady dealings to promote ethanol and E-85 in Indiana. Under his watch, he had the state subsidize something like 13 ethanol plants in Indiana. Ethanol is not produced at a profit, and so the economy in Indiana was shifted into inefficient production at his behest. Pawlenty had similar dealings, as did Mike Pence.

John Thune takes the cake, he signed onto bills with Usurper barrack hussein ubama of kenya while the usurper was still just a senator and the socialist corn growers gave him an award for being so good at getting them pork. I am ashamed that he is from my state, much of which is not even corn growing country and it will continue to seriously impact ranchers.

(Paraphrased from National Review Online, though the article isn’t on the main page anymore and I didn’t bother to search for it. The article is called Corn Hucksters or something like that.)

Please elaborate why you say that IN taxes should be advertized as being 100,000 times those of IL. By they do you mean IN or IL? Is it simply to discourage the stupidity of Chicago from moving into IN?

The northwest corner of IN is effectively part of Chicago wrt to the way that they live, tax, etc.

I agree that most of IL is jus as Conservative as the majority of IN. It’s just that the Rural/small town to urban population ratio is approximately .70 for IN and .3 for IL. Chicago dominates IL politics which means that the Liberal, city dwelling Democraps impose their stupidity onto the entire state. They do so in ways that actually punishes the Conservative portion which is the majority of the IL land mass.

A lot of states have the problem of clueless urban ignorami (I shouldn’t have to say this, but I don’t regard all city dwellers as “clueless urban ignorami”) imposing destructive laws and regs on the people who feed, clothe and shelter them. Just ask rural folk in OR’s Willamette Valley or CA’s Central Valley. Maybe when food and clothing become hyper-expensive and rare, when plumbers, doctors, electricians, etc. become rare and hyper-expensive, a few of the clueless urban ignorami will get an inkling of what they “accomplished”.

No, they will just pass laws mandating that each person has access to a doctor and food and raw materials, even though they don’t exist anymore and eventually be eradicated by starvation and disease after there is nothing left to steal.

Yes, to keep the idiot dysgenics in Chicago out of Indiana. A wall should also be put up* around Gary and south along the border for several hundred miles (and possible up and around Michigan City and to the Michigan border along I-94. No reason to take any chances)

Gary will then be ceded to Illinois and Chicago.

This will all be paid for by removing funding for medicaid and state housing. All former recipients will be given one way bus tickets to Chicago.

I think the word for that is Socialism.

We already live in socialism.

Why do you think the largest businesses give heavily to the democrats and why they get exemptions and benefits in return?

They are no longer businesses, they are just government entities.

If you are one of the little people, they tax you and regulate you down to poverty regardless.

It is a fact that if you make $60,000 a year (fairly typical middle class), that after taxes you make less than a minimum wage person living on welfare.

You barely make more than a person who works for minimum wage only on weekends, after welfare and taxes are factored in.

It is exactly as I said, the government, through regulation, controls access to doctors, to raw materials, to food and even to your property.

They just haven’t become so blatant as to go and rob people directly without extenuating circumstances. Just look at how they seized GM from its creditors and rightful owners and gave it to their lackeys in the UAW. There is not an ounce of capitalism left in this country, the only difference between the US and the rest of the world is that there is a slight shimmer of hope that it can be reversed.

It isn’t the shining city on the hill anymore, it is the flash light in the garbage heap.
