Daley considering increased taxes This is the headline I saw a couple of days ago in my online paper. I had to laugh. So, Daley’s “considering” raising taxes? In nearly 20 years, when has Daley ever “considered” raising taxes and then decided not to? Hmm? Anyone? Chicago already has the highest tax rates in the country, and now they’re going to go up some more, on lots of other things. Cubs, Sox, Bears, Bulls, and Blackhawks fans, grab your wallets for you’re HIGH on the list, since Daley’s got an increase in “taxing major sports events” in mind. I know Bears fans are loyal, but I foresee some games blacked out in the future. Because the tax on parking’s going up too. Oh, won’t be driving to the games? Don’t worry, CTA fares are increasing also. And don’t think you’re exempt from the tax either, music lovers! Live music shows are getting the extra taxation too.
But don’t worry, maybe Daley can go on the road with his new comedy act. I’m serious! He should think about it! This is what he said! “Daley said he always tries to better manage his government before turning to taxpayers.” Have you ever heard anything funnier in your life?
