First the sale tax, then the income and corporate tax and now the property tax! Are these politicians trying to kill us! Not sure how much more I can take. I am getting stretched thin! Property tax bills anger Cook County homeowners | The Chicago Local - Yahoo! News The average increase is 27%!!! When IL has seen some of the highest property decreases and foreclosure rates in the country! The Dimocrats in charge of this state are morons and the people who vote for them are retarded!
