Most of the taxes Illinois/Chicago impose hit the middle class the hardest...do you see them increasing taxes on luxury vehicles? Or on furs? No..
Personally, instead of increasing "sin" taxes, I'd like them to increase state vehicle license stickers, things like that; it would spread the hurt around. Our vehicle taxes are really low in Illinois; when my sister in law moved to MN, she couldn't believe the hundreds of dollars she had to fork over in license registration fees.
And put an increased tax on boat moorings in Lake Michigan harbors!! Or how about licensing fees for their luxury boats? Have you ever walked up and down the piers at Montrose Harbor? Those boats are unbelievable!!
