Americans are fleeing high tax, union-dominated states and settling in states with lower taxes, right-to-work laws and lower government spending.
Chicago is burdened with not only high taxes but outrageous debt (more stories to follow on that issue shortly.) We have to understand that we are not going to be able to tax our way out of this problem. People will leave, and it will not be the poorest among us. It will be those who have the means; the upper-middle class will be the first to go. Lose that tax base and this city is sunk.
