RoadDog on taxation

RoadDog has spoken:

This past Monday, Liz and I went to the Northwest suburbs playing NTN and encountered the highest sales tax in the country, over 10.25% and more. Of course, a lot of this has to do with the Cook County taxes, which have drawn a lot of controversy and even some townships have broached the idea of seceding (just remember what happened to the South when they tried).

The head of Cook County, Todd Stroger, maintains these taxes are needed, although he got in trouble for NOT PAYING HIS INCOME TAXES, and the federal government has a lien on his home.

Unfortunately, in a recession the only thing worse than raising taxes is lowering them.
