In a shocking turn of events, a group of taxpayers in Illinois have expressed their outrage over President Joe Biden mispronouncing the words “tax reform.” The incident reportedly occurred during a speech in which Biden was discussing the potential reform of Illinois’ property tax sale system.
According to witnesses, Biden stumbled over the words “tax reform” several times before finally settling on a slightly garbled version that left the audience confused and baffled. One taxpayer, who wished to remain anonymous, expressed their disgust at the president’s perceived disrespect for the issue at hand.
“How dare he mispronounce such an important phrase? It’s clear he doesn’t take tax reform seriously,” the taxpayer fumed. “As someone who has been personally affected by Illinois’ property tax sale system, I find his lack of regard for this issue absolutely appalling.”
Despite the perceived slight, however, there may still be hope for taxpayers in Illinois. A Senate bill amendment aimed at reforming the state’s property tax sale system has received backing from the Cook County treasurer’s office and the Chicago Community Trust, indicating that progress may be made in the coming months.
Of course, this news may come as little comfort to those still reeling from Biden’s linguistic faux pas. The incident has reportedly sparked widespread outrage across the state, with many calling for an immediate apology from the president.
In a statement released to the press, White House official spokesperson Jen Psaki offered a brief response to the controversy, stating that Biden “remains committed to tax reform in all its forms, regardless of how he may pronounce the words.”
For now, it remains to be seen whether the Illinois property tax sale system will be reformed, and whether President Biden will be able to regain the trust of taxpayers who were offended by his mispronunciation of a key phrase. One thing, however, is certain: as long as tax reform remains a contentious political issue, there will always be those who find something to be offended about.
