AMEN! I AGREE! Our property taxes in Illinois are insane. And for those of us who live in Cook County, we are taxed far beyond what could be considered reasonable. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to attack this problem. However, state and local taxes are set by the Illinois State Legislature, not the United States Legislature (Congress). I am running for the United States House of Representatives. I will not have the authority to change the tax laws in any state, including our beautiful State of Illinois.
However, I am dedicated to advocating for lower taxes. As your Congresswoman, I will be in a position to discuss these issues with our state leaders. Taxes, especially property taxes and sales taxes, are among the topics I look forward to discussing with our state leaders. I want to bring my solutions-driven mindset to those conversations to assist our state leaders in finding solutions that can benefit everyone in our state, especially in Illinois' 2nd Congressional District. Even when it comes to topics outside my authority on the federal level, I will still try to assist whenever possible, in an advisory capacity with our State leaders.
