WATCH: Progressive Tax 'Just Opening Up the Gates for More Income Taxes'

Date: October 23, 2020


Peter Orum, a member of the NFIB Illinois Leadership Council, says in a video by the Vote No on the Progressive Tax coalition that the proposed state constitutional amendment would hurt small businesses like his. NFIB is part of the coalition.

Orum, who owns Midwest Groundcovers in St. Charles, says building a small business is never easy, but “this proposed amendment concerns me a lot.”

“It is just opening up the gates for more income taxes,” he says. “That is scary – especially scary when there’s no plan for pension reform or budget reform of any type.

“The more we pay in taxes, the less we can invest in new growing systems – and providing more jobs.”
