Toddler Runs on Taxes

  • Cook County Board President Todd Stroger unveils his budget for next year which he says includes no new taxes or fees.

    He told county commissioners on Thursday afternoon that the $3 billion spending plan will not reduce services.

    Stroger says this is possible because of a controversial sales tax increase passed last year.

See? He's already raised the taxes and bought off at least one commissioner who changed her vote so the tax hike could stay. Now he can claim to be "holding the line" on the previous increases.

Vote Toddler - for change!

Why is that in this stinking, cesspool of a city - the City Council and Aldercreatures NEVER consider cutting expenses FIRST! They always go after raising taxes.

50% of your property taxes go towards education in this county. Consider that you work for a full 2 months to pay your property taxes - imagine that your hard-earned dollars are all being spent at Fenger, Westinghouse, Crane or Steinmetz.

Leave you with a sense of satisfaction? Stop voting DummyCrat! The Leftists that have hijacked this government have no concept of Life, Liberty or private property.

Sic semper tyrannis!

They are mugs, thugs and slugs. But in the great American democracy, they have the same vote you have, (Wink, wink - Acorn) and have a vested interest in keeping the $ flowing from your pockets, to theirs.

The conduit? Democratic party.

While you might prefer a no contract- no-work stance, remember, felons can't vote.
Ah, geez. In Cook county they can, right?

I would not feel sorry for James Joyce. If he still paying into the police pension, he can retire with two pensions. Not a bad deal

Stroger is finished. This is a non-story.

His approval rating is below 10% countywide. His only supporters are people who don't pay taxes, and, of course, these people rarely vote. I'll bet there is less than $25,000 in his re-election campaign. He is done.

The real enemy is Pat Quinn. He is the one who has to go, if you want to have any money in your pocket in four more years.

Well, I'd rather see HIM win it than Stroger.

How does Stroger actually say, with a straight face, that he won't raise the HIGHEST TAXES IN THE COUNTRY any higher???

Do Not Vote For Anyone Related to the Cook County Democratic Party. Stroger is a fucking dog, as is Richard M. Daley, and all their theiving associates.

Organize a golf outing and have Stroger & Daley stand on high ground. Hope for a Thunder and lightening storm. Pray for a double strike on those two assholes.

A pile of shit can be detected by the smell long before you see the actual pile of turds. D
aley & Stroger reek of festering turds. Can the Fed prosecutor smell festering criminality ? I think not. He must live with the criminal pile of shit.

Vote for candidates that understand the critical position our county is in. No more hand outs for ghetto wolves. We have a number of pro-police candidates that are running for office. Second City Cop please publish a list of police candidates in the coming election that will not cave into political correctness and ethical bankruptcy.

Maybe you're drunk, like I am now, but you're an idiot. You are why some people hate the police. Open your mind a little bit (just a little.) "If you are stupid enough to shop here" ???? How about someone without a car? How about someone that doesn't have an extra hour to drive out of the county to buy milk. Please, start thinking from another person's point of view every once in a while. Man I'm starting to not like some of my co-workers.

Cook County does not have a sales tax.

The state of ilinois has a sales tax and that tax is 10.25 percent.

State gets 6.25
city of chicago 1.25
RTA 1.0
and Cook County 1.75

Cook County's portion is only 1.75 percent. ASK THE STATE TO GIVE BACK A PORTION. OH WHAT??? THEY ARE 12 BILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT!!!!!


Know your facts first...then rant


Todd Stroger has the only balanced budget in this country.

If Chicago Police were in the county you would not be taking furlough days and you would have a contract

ASK THE SHERIFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!
