Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Another Chicago liar…

The first liar if His Oneness,  of course,  but Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is already scrambling to explain  why the city  needs the $588 million property tax increase the City Council approved last fall.   He needs to shore up the pension plans of teachers and police and fire employees,  because the city has proven itself totally unwilling to reform the extremely generous systems,  which is apparently pitifully easy to game if you have the right connections.

The doubling of homeowner exceptions he promised back then vanished without a trace,  so he’s now reduced to vague promises about future adjustments.   Does anyone with a functioning brain believe a word of it?
