Severin: Democrats’ Pay Raise Insulting to Illinoisans Struggling with Inflation

SPRINGFIELD – State Rep. Dave Severin released the following statement after Illinois House Democrats approved a late Friday night pay increase for Illinois politicians and their staffs.

“Illinois Democrats just don’t get it. People are struggling with decades high inflation. People can’t afford Joe Biden, JB Pritzker, and Illinois Democrats’ energy bills. People can’t afford food and basic necessities. People are working two jobs to make ends meet. And Democrats think they deserve a big fat pay raise. I am insulted for the people I represent that are working hard to feed themselves and their families in this atrocious economy. I would hope that Governor Pritzker would exercise his veto authority to stop this madness from becoming the law of the land.”
