Chicago wanted voters to vote for that, almost 30 years ago. Legislature said no deal. The whole state does not benefit from paying higher taxes for one city. Just as it is down here. We will forever be paying high taxes to rebuild one city that does not benefit the whole state. The rest of our state needs to be repaired or what ever. Not just one city. I don't think the state of Illinois needs to pay for Chicago's mass transit system. Even if it does provide free bus service for seniors. The mass transit system should already provide that service.

NO,NO,No, should be the answer to the Chicago mass transit system. Even if it does provide free services to the seniors. That service should already be available. Nearly 30 years ago, Chicago wanted the state to pay for it transit system. The voters and legislatures said no. There are more important things to fix in your state. Roads, jobs, etc. We here in Louisiana will forever be paying high taxes just to rebuild New Orleans. The rest of the state is falling apart and mayors are scrambling to find money to fix their towns etc. Your Illinois legislatures need to say no again to Chicago's transit system.
