For this and other reasons, the productive decent people of Chicago should move outside the city limits of Chicago. Ditto for many other major cities, which are going to confront these problems in the future.
Move and dispose of all property you own in such cities, so you won’t be taxed to pay for all these mistakes.
According to one of my lib sisters who lives in a Chicago suburb, most non-black/Hispanic residents of the Chicago suburbs are Republicans. She whines about being the only Democrat at parties. I just laugh. Even her husband is a Republican.
The answer from the poly-libs is to tax everyone who can be considered to have earnings derived from ANY interaction with [insert name]! The current example of this is the pro athlete teams who are taxed on the portion of salary 'earned' in the locality. Once a tax has been established, it is easy to expand it to an ever larger group of 'tax payers', and that is what will be done.
Soon people will get tax notices from places they have never been but since the money is deemed 'earned' from there, pay you must. Why do you think we are seeing all the effort to track cars and people throughout the land? Yes, they say it is for [plausible reason] but when the data is just lying there ... TAX IT!
The City of Chicago is also the entirety of Cook County.
