Rod: for tax breaks before he was against them


How would you like a property tax bill of just $150?

—Rod Blagojevich, kicking off his tax increase campaign

How would you like to be governor and have your property assessment rise only 1 percent while everyone else around you is slapped with a 37 percent increase?

—What his oppponents ought to counter with

Rod opened his campaign for the largest tax increase in Illinois history (video) with a sharp poke at corporations that he says get tax breaks. Kind of audacious, I'd say, considering his own property assessment break, which will save him $11,826 over three years compared to his neighbors.

In case you forgot about the issue in the fog of the last campaign, here are my posts on it.
