Well the thugs are in charge in Chicago. New contract but how the hell do you pay for $300M+ in pay raises in a district that is $600M in the hole?
Well, you just raise taxes on the rich people to make up the difference. The only problem is, the rich ones are the ones in charge, and they don't want to pay more. Oh, but Chicago has democratic leadership, they should have no problem paying more to support the children. I'm sure they will figure out someway to raise taxes on themselves, with a few loopholes, that places the burden on regular working people and never pay a penny more themselves. They might even end up paying less if they word the tax increase correctly.
