Huge Illinois Business Leaves for Indiana
by Scott McCOY for State Representative of the 106th House District in Illinois Mon Aug 22, 2011 at 10:10 pm CST
Tomorrow (Tuesday), Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels is expected to announce that Indiana will welcome a new business that will bring 240 new jobs to Indiana all thanks to Illinois Governor Quinn, the Illinois Democrats, and the major hike in Illinois taxes the Democrats put on Illinois businesses.
Modern Drop Forge, of Blue Island, Illinois, is expected to move its operation to Merrillville, Indiana. They are also expected to make a $7 million investment to improve the new property, according to NWI Times news of Indiana.
The Democrats just dont get it, said Scott McCoy, a businessman and candidate for Illinois State Representative of the newly formed 106th House District in Central Illinois. The Democrats caused this with their huge tax hike on Illinois businesses. Now, Illinois businesses are looking for more business friendly states and I cant blame them. Illinois is doing this to ourselves. I hope the people in our state figure it out before we look around and see no businesses or jobs left in Illinois.
McCoy says Illinois business climate of regulations, high taxes, and an over-controlling state government has put Illinois in a very bad place.
Governor Quinn and the Democrats are going to continue down this path for the next year and a half until we can elect conservative leaders into the Illinois House and Senate, McCoy explained. Then its two more years until we have a chance to elect a conservative governor. Its going to be a very hard and painful several years here in Illinois.
Scott McCoy says Illinois needs strong, conservative leaders who will stand up to the Democrats and win the people over to a more conservative direction. He said the Republicans and the TEA Party need to press hard from now until election day to change the course.
How many more businesses and jobs will we lose from now until then, McCoy asked. Once they leave, dont expect them to come back.
For more on this story:
The recent unbelievable hike in state income tax, some of the highest gasoline prices in the country, inflationary food costs, not to mention all the expressways are now becoming almost impossible to use because of the exorbitant tolls (another hike coming)....all combine to make it increasingly impossible to live in the state and still pay the bills.
The Dem state government is corrupt. The Dem city government of Chicago is corrupt....and the sheer weight of Chicago's Democrat/liberal/welfare/minority voting power is the tail that wags the dog for the entire state....so no relief is in sight, ever.
The last person who leaves Illinois won't even be able to turn off the lights because electrity will have become so expensive that only candles will be available.
NLRB lawsuit to follow.
And to top it off, Merrilville is only about 10 miles from Illinois!
Illinois will just sue them to keep them there.
I hear you! We are about to become residents of Florida within the next few weeks. We fully expect anal probes for the next number of years from the Illinois regime...and we’re ready!
Blue Island, IL was a great working mans town which had a large Italian American community now replaced by Mexicans and welfare mommas.
When liberals from California start to reap what they have sewn and don't particularly like the society they have created, they leave bring the same pathologies to their new states. This is called “Californication”.
When voting at the ballot box fails, and those who were voted into office were given the mandate to loot and pillage the producers, the producers will vote with their feet and moving trucks.
Payrolls Climb in 31 States, Led by New York, Texas; Nevada Is at Bottom
By Alex Kowalski - Aug 19, 2011 3:26 PM CT
“The biggest job losses last month occurred in Illinois, where employers cut payrolls by 24,900,...”
That's a great slogan for the Democrat politicians in Illinois.
"ILLINOIS, THE NEXT MICHIGAN".
Or, "ILLINOIS, THE OTHER MICHIGAN".
Who Is John Galt?
“I just hope that those people who flee Illinois to conservative Southern states first realize why their former homes became hell holes and then don’t bring the same attitudes and politics to their new states.”
I have vacationed in New Hampshire once in awhile and found that the state is being inundated by liberals fleeing Massachusetts and the high taxes. However those new residents bring with them all of the socialist demands on New Hampshire government that they demanded in Taxachusetts.
Governor Lynch Announces NH Rate Drops Below 5 percent for the first time since December 2008
Also, Governor Signs Law Expanding Jobs Initiative to Continue to Help People Get Back to Work
CONCORD Governor John Lynch today announced New Hampshire’s unemployment rate has dropped to its lowest point in 2½ years. The state’s unemployment rate for April was 4.9 percent, the first time the rate has been below 5 percent since December 2008.
I lived in California from 1981 until 1994, and knew that it was only a matter of time before it went into the toilet as well.
So, when do you expect the State of Illinois Legislature to make it illegal to leave the state? That is either as an individual or a business entity?
“Who Is John Galt?”

I live in that same area. My ex and I share custody of our kids so we would both have to move. We have actually discussed it because she is fed up with the politics in this state as well.
Ha....I said the same thing. “Chicago, the Detroit of the future”
It is good that you and your ex are discussing the important items. It can't be a good area to raise kids anymore. There was a lot of farmland there when I lived there. I know that Bell Labs was surrounded by corn fields, then. I understand it is surrounded by housing developments now.
