Yes... If only these Republicans could be more like the responsible Democrats on the Chicago and Joliet Counsels. Thank God the Dems are in touch with their constituents. At least Plainfield and Shorewood aren't raising taxes the way that Joliet and Chicago are. But, way to try and blame the GOP.

Well put
