Look absolute power corrupts absolutely .

Democrats working with unions to maintain power have run Chicago into the ground financially . There is not enough money to keep this bloated mess afloat.

Remember that axiom from economics 101

what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of.

Now look around Chicago see all those welfare queens illegal immigrants black drug gangs with unregistered unlicensed guns?

Notice the lack of jobs, shopping , in Chicago?

Chicago will go bankrupt cause they over spent over promised greedy unions contracts the city did not fund and can't pay, allowed greedy unions to run business out of the city

the city is now a vast waste land more empty houses , vacant house lots, empty factories than Detroit ever had.

Shame is Chicago was a beautiful city until the 60's when the down hill slide started.

Bet the south side of Chicago with all them welfare queens black kids living in slums with no fathers, black drug dealers killing hundreds of blacks each year, illegal immigrants is a feature of Black history month
