Chicago is always looking for more tax revenue to waste on greedy unions.

so in the public interest I suggest Chicago start taxing drug sellers a SALES TAX plus issue a license fees authorizing them to sell illegal drugs and tax drug buyers.a sales tax.

Drug dealers could also receive a bill from the state and federal irs for income taxes due. from this and previous years drug sales.

those drug dealing gun toting folks collect a whole lot of money and all that money gots to be going some where so why not in the city & state coffers ?

This is a proven system Chicago and the state have driven lots of companies out of the city and state by over taxing over regulating them and they could do the same to the drug dealers on the south side of da city.

Hey you don't see a lot of business or manufacturing jobs in the city do you??? now you know why.

Chicago Machine Penions Debt debacle earns Illnois lowest Credit Rating in America.........Chicago still holds on to SECOND lowest City after Bankrupt Detroit.

Democrats promise their Union backers to keep the extortion of the Public in service to the Public employees as JOB ONE no matter how dismal the outcomes.

yea but they can only kick the financial can so far down the road then the bill will come due and there isn't any money honey to pay the bills.

Then all those promises to greedy unions by corrupt democrats will be worthless.

bankruptcy court welcome to Chicago.

that's what happens when one party rule working with unions are in power too long.

there needs to be checks and balances in government.

Many believe IL voters didn't even know that Dem pols had sold out current and future generations of IL families in return for Union campaign support. Illinois has The highest UNFUNDED Pension Debt [er capita in America.......even worse than the pathetic remians of CALIF and NY.

Their children will pay a terrible price for voters voting for anything w/ a D beside it's name on a Ballot without paying attention to the extortion schemes.

I would suggest the better question to ask and demand an answer to is

" is Chicago a better city after 60 years of democrat /union mismanagement?

a ride through the south side of Chicago along with an examination of employment numbers in the city will provide an answer to the question.

add up the total numbers of empty house lots that had homes and tax payers living in them once upon a time, then add in the empty abandon homes, business buildings, schools.

the south side looks like a war zone. I and many other former citizens of Chicago could show you photographs of what the city looked like in the 50's 60's before the blight began.

Jessie fillmypocketsfirst Jackson can walk around the city with his goofy grin pretending to lead but at the end of the day he and other pretend community leaders have allowed his neighborhoods and his people to slide into a dismal abyss of failure.

he bought into the democrat union lies and let the people of Chicago down.
