And because Chicago (where the middle C is pronounced like a T) has raised the prices and fees on everything from water to parking, property taxes to sales taxes, you will see even more migration to the suburbs. And these people will bring not only the liberal philosophy that wrecked Chicago, but all the crimes and problems too. Illinois is dead. We are leaving, I suggest anyone who wants a decent life do the same.
