there is no democracy chicago when one corrupt political party working with corrupt unions to maintain power.

the down side of this unholy alliance is in the unfunded greedy union retirement programs democrats have promised but not funded.

the democrats keep kicking the financial can down the road to the next secession on city hall morons.

There is an axiom in economics which states
"what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of"

now over taxing over regulating allowing union bullies to be aggressive have driven jobs, business and now middle income tax payers out of town..

Chicago has encouraged large numbers of illegal immigrants, black & immigrant drug dealing gangs with guns none of whom pay taxes.

so who is going to be around to pay the freight for those greedy union contracts the democrats promised but never funded??

see ya in bankruptcy court chicago ha ha ha ha

whats with all those abandoned homes & vacant lots on the south side of chicago.

the south side used to be full of life homes business now its just a waste land a really sad end to a great city thanks to out of control black people & illegals.

tell al "notso" sharpton or jessie "fillmypocketsfirst' jackson or obozo
