Daley and Governor Blagojevic are on a commie rampage. The most powerful mayor also runs the state now because his puppet governor just rubber stamps anything he says.
He is also constantly raising taxes and finding new ways of generating revenue like the "amusement tax" for cable tv service....AND the amazing thing is, it's never enough and they are always in a deficit. Buying a car in Chicago would cost you about $2,500 in fees and taxes. Starting a business will cost thousands in permits, fees and city approvals. Breaking ground for a new building will cost you $10,000 - 12,000 for the city to come and do soil samples.
Chicago has seen one of the largest tax base increases in the last 30 years due to the construction boom, but it's still never enough. Empty buildings on a single block have thousands of tax paying condos there now...still not enough.
Corruption and greed are god in Chicago. They would do anything to generate money for the cronies in the city. Nearby casinos were supposed to pay for school problems and the toll roads were supposed to be paid for years ago. What happened? Nothing. People got rich.
Daley sold the Skyway Expressway for gobs of money to a private firm. Still not enough.
Feds need to pinch comrade Daley and his sidekick Blago. Government was not supposed to be a burden to citizens but rather a tool to help business and ensure progress for the commonwealth. It has become a LEACH!
