    All you have to do is look at Obamas cabinet and Czar appointments and you would find even bigger and more tax cheats. There is no news in this, we all know it already just soooooo many who will not accept the facts.

    my instinct told this was not the whole story. maybe maybe obama's all over percentage was already high, so his increase was lower, arriving at the same later. too fuzzy?

    check this from the linked link:

    As a non-politician in Chicago area, I can say it doesn't set well with me. Not Obama, Not Daley, not the rest of those that steal right and left from us.

    Also from the site, more of the nonsense:

    don't you get it?

    obama saw a smaller increase because he voluntarily paid more the last years. he already pays a higher level, of course his increase will be lower.

    you should compare the overall percentage he is paying, not the increase.

    doesn't it say on average, so it doesn't mean everyone's increased that much. And like LK Eder pointed out Obama didn't take the two year exemption which is probably the number one reason why his did not go up and other people' did. Also did you think maybe the other politicians also did not take the exemption?

    He's still paying less than even the other pols, that are way below the average. Yes, he paid more earlier, but less total. It's the 'way.'

    "Obama does pay more in property taxes than most politicians in Chicago and Cook County do, the Chicago Sun-Times found by examining online copies of the tax bills that Cook County "
