“RAHM IS GOOD FOR CHICAGO because…” Because he is paying millions of dollars for ads to get re-elected.
Rahm’s Chicago bleeds every single one of the 2,700,000 present citizens and the innumerable people who have lived there in the past. He rips us off every day in every way. How?
One easy example occurred a few weeks ago when I ordered a copy of my birth certificate. The tax fee is $15.00. That is how much goes into the tax base. That seems fair considering the services that Chicago should supply to its citizens.
But how much did I actually pay for a copy of my birth certificate – a single piece of paper mailed to me? $46.45
$31.45 goes to whichever of Rahm’s buddies gets the third party contract to copy and mail one sheet of paper. The money does not go into Chicago’s tax base to support schools and city services. The money goes into a “connected” buddy’s pocket.
Why would any of the 2,700,000 Chicagoans vote to re-elect Rahm?
Hey, Chicago! Wake up and throw the bum out!
By the way, my wife also needed a birth certificate and our marriage license in order to get an updated driver’s license. We had to pay a total of $139.35 for $45.00 worth of certificate copies, three sheets of paper.
So even though we presently live in another state, Rahm ripped us off. As a retired teacher I am living on my earned compensation (pension) which Rahm is threatening to cut. I believe he does not belong in City Hall. Rahm belongs in jail with several past Illinois governors who were convicted and justifiably imprisoned there.
