Case In Point

There are some cities in Illinois that are trying to secede from Cook County. We have the highest taxes and the most corruption in the US. In Chicago, we've run up a major deficit and businesses are closing every day. That doesn't stop our mayor (with the help of Obama) from doing whatever it takes to get the Olympics--including putting the taxpayers on the hook.

Everyone - we can't afford it!


PS - the argument for the Olympics will state that cities never loose money. Not here in Chicago. No civic project occurs here without indictments and major over-runs when it's all said and done. I doubt we'll even have a roof on the stadium on time.
