yo mayor

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

now look around your city county and state.

see all those empty mgf commercial buildings empty office spaces see all those jobs not there??

that's the result of 50 years of over taxing over regulating, aggressive union bully tactics on business. you have created a very business unfriendly environment in Chicago.
ya need to learn that business and wealthy people can move anywhere they want.

see all those welfare queens, illegal immigrants
other people hanging on to city funds.

ya subsidized them and they came a running, now your stuck with the unproductive people in society, while the productive people who create wealth have left for the greener pastures of lower taxes, fewer regulations and far less union harassment .

so how many abandon homes and business properties have you had to bulldoze?? none of those properties now producing tax revenue??

hummmm who's going to pay the cost of this bloated fiscal mess???

so you just keep raising them taxes see what happens..........
