More Tax Increases

Read this article. Does it make any sense? What about the waste and sweetheart deals? What about the sheriff with 5 public relations people and 10 lawyers on his payroll? Is that part of the reason we need these tax increases? I think the pols are steering Cook County in the direction of Detroit. People will leave in order to avoid these taxes. Preckwinkle’s tax increase package passes first hurdle - Chicago Sun-Times

    It is funny on those truly rare occasions when any Democrat of any position - actually opposes a tax! Ah just read a line or two more and you find out that it negatively impacts their particular constituents - only then do they care - but when they are adding more taxes to all others then it is no problem. EX Beverly rat Gainer says it could negatively impact her area. Follow the reasoning then...wouldn't pretty much all taxes hurt jobs...taxes almost ALWAYS hurt our economy - IL ranks dead LAST in job creation 10 months after our huge tax hikes..wake up 19th warders - the Democrats are the enemy of all who work for a living !!!!

  2. The above description of a Cook County commissioner is not the opinion of Murph. People that want their comments posted need to refrain from personal attacks of any type. Sadly, I delete many comments because they are just angry rants that add nothing to the discussion.

    Like Hynes and many other ex South Siders, Gainer holds very liberal views. Among the sainted positions held by these ex locals is that they follow the national Democratic Party that has shifted significantly to promoting what are basically Socialist opinions on the economy, "the wealthy" and "big business" - not to mention their extremely liberal social positions - ie yeah i am Catholic but I am pro choice (even to the point of funding it), pro - gay marriage, etc....Gainer is a sellout to the average Joe from the 19th ! Again - not wrong to point out the hypocrisy of a liberal who actually opposes a tax - only because it could come back to bite her....

    Stop Spending what we don't have!!!!!!L Isn't it only fair to try a new tactic? I myself have had two business ventures that were crushed by "modest tax increases". The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.What so bad about cutting freebies.?We will eventually see our children just move away from these tax and spend fools. I to will leave this state when my time to retire comes. It saddens me and I tear up just thinking about this. Term limits would be a start......

    Just don't pay em anymore. It's the only way to stop the Democommunists. Show your Patriotism, just say "NO", I'm NOT payin. 55% of the Country ALREADY doesn't pay their taxes, are THEY in Jail ? No. guess why? Because WE, the loyal Chumps, keep paying more and more and more, to make up for it, and it's STILL not enough.. Just refuse to pay too, like the Deadbeats have done for their entire lives.

    30k a year custodians get laid off so Dart can hire former prostitues. One has been shot 5 times and stabbed 13 times.
