Prickwrinkle to Raise Taxes
- When it was a bad thing, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle referred to it as the “Stroger sales tax.”
Now, Preckwinkle is considering bringing back a penny-on-the-dollar sales tax increase that helped her defeat her predecessor, Todd Stroger.
So she runs on the promise of repealing the tax, wins, repeals the tax, fails to cut any spending and in fact increases the County debt load, so has to resort to ....raising taxes! It's fucking brilliant!
