- A non-resident fee would allow Chicago to generate income without repeatedly adding to the tax burden of Chicago residents. It is time to ask suburban residents who are vested in Chicago by means of their employment to invest in the future of the city.

- "The citizens of Chicago cannot and should not continue to subsidize non-resident workers through tax increases, resident fee increases and higher utilization fees."
Wait a second, just wait a fucking second... WHY NOT?!?
We've been doing it for Illegal Aliens all day long who enter into this Country, but if it's done on a City Level, now it's somehow wrong?
A legit question. Suburbanites would have less rights that illegal aliens under this proposal...and that's just fine according to Cardenas.
