But that's the thing, the suburbs are not Chicago. And as much as he wants mayor Tiny Dancer (Rahm) can't tax US in the suburbs. And that's ChiRaq's whole problem -- not enough money coming in from the ever dwindling tax base for what's owed to pensions (BILLIONS). And that's a problem the Dems brought on themselves starting with mumble-mouth Daley.
When King Richie II, aka Shortshanks, opened the doors to the city and declared it a 'Sanctuary City' the illegals poured in and the White Middle class -- aka Taxpayers --
left fled in droves. Neighborhood after neighborhood especially on the southwest side went from being a stable, CRIME FREE, tax base to below poverty level Mexican Barrios full of f--king bang-bangers. Add in the 'Gibs-me-dat' generational welfare Blacks who breed like rodents with all the illegals and what's left is one big pile of cr-p.
And it's only getting worse. There's not one single area in ChiRaq now that can be called 'safe' -- not one. Not the Mag Mile, not the Gold Coast, not the far SW or South side. And not the NW Side -- Thursday a guy got robbed at Gun Point a couple hundred feet from Rahm's house, and he has Two Cop Cars right there.
The urban goblins don't care. But the middle class DOES!
-- The only thing keeping the lid on that city is the Coppers and they're undermanned by the thousands. Some beats don't have cops patrolling any more, there's no cop to patrol it. (and there's no money to hire more cops) --
