This is barbaric!
This man should be impeached for this. As the rest of America prepares to open up for business, Illinois Democrat Governor J. B. Pritzker has maimed his own citizens and threaten them with a year in jail if they dare to open their small businesses.
According to Illinois Policy Org, “Small business owners trying to save their livelihoods could face up to a year in prison under Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s new emergency rules, unless a key committee fights back.“
Rule breaking business owners will be slapped with a Class A misdemeanor for going against Pritzker’s commands.
Under Pritzker’s new orders the maximum penalty for business owners is a $2,500 fine and one year in prison.
Currently this new rule is effective for a whopping 150 days unless otherwise changed.
