ahhh the high cost of staying in office. Ya gotta kiss so much union and give in to every excessive demand to keep them voting for you but when the bill come due and you ain't got the bread fred??

Humm I think I see a bankruptcy filing in Chicago's future!

City hall has already taxed everything in sight so what else can they tax to raise more money to waste??

Remember that axiom from economics which states
" WHAT YOU TAX YOU GET LESS OF, WHAT YOU SUBSIDIZE YOU GET MORE OF"

Now look around the south side of Chicago and you will see that the axiom is the truth in Chicago.
