That's it The people of Chicago are much dumber than I ever suspected they could be.

First off you folks in chicago have got to study economics before you do anything new.

Economics 101 has an axiom which states " What you tax you get less of, what you subsidize you get more of.

Now look around Chicago! see all those empty factories, office buildings? The city county and state governments have over taxed over regulated business for 50 years, you made it so difficult and expensive to do business in Chicago that many companies moved out of the city and sometimes the State to other more business friendly environments.

NYC NY, Maryland, California, CT, Detroit, Michigan and many other states and cities have over taxed over regulated and lost more than they had hope to realize by raising taxes.

so raising taxes will cost the city tax paying people and jobs as they leave for more consumer friendly cities and states.

Now lets take another look at Chicago with a view to identifying tax payers still left in the city shall we?

See all those welfare ho's illegal immigrants drug gangs, greedy city unions ?
that's the what and who that you have been subsidizing for years.

Now lets keep in mind the welfare ho's illegal immigrants and drug gangs don't pay taxes they don't support anything they just take anything and everything free they suck the financial life blood out of a city as do unions.

so who is going to pay the bills when they come due in Chicago with no jobs, no middle class tax payers to support those greedy union retirement contacts when they come due?

remember the greedy union retirement contracts are unfunded, just like Detroit's union contracts were. which means The financial mismanagers in Chicago city hall just keep kicking the can down the road to the next session of city hall mismanagers. Lets them figure out how to pay the bills? How much of a deficit does Chicago have today??

Ha ha ha no one has a clue how to pay for it. ha ha ha

But remember chicago that's what you voted for past 50 years, one party democrat mismanagement of Chicago finances.

Guess we will see ya in bankruptcy court Chicago.

so go ahead raise the taxes ha ha ha ha I can't wait to see the stampede as folk leave the city. the wind will be the one moving people out tax and crime hell.
