The [Wednesday] Papers

'It's not like he had much of a choice.'

*

Greg Hinz "explains" today for Crain's why Rahm's budget will pass. Has a Chicago mayor's budget ever not passed - and by a huge margin - in the last 30 years? Or ever?

*

"Six months ago, when Mayor Rahm Emanuel was fighting for his political life in a re-election runoff against Jesus 'Chuy' Garcia, even Chicagoans wise in the ways of City Hall would have raised an eyebrow if you'd told them that soon the mayor would propose a $588 million property tax increase and that a wide majority of aldermen would compliantly and promptly enact it."

What? We all knew a property tax hike was coming. It was common knowledge. That's partly what made Emanuel's attack on a property tax hike vote Garcia took when Harold Washington was mayor so despicable.

*

"After all, hiking the property tax long has been the third rail of Chicago politics, a too-hot-to-handle matter that even Richard M. Daley at the height of his powers refused to try. It couldn't happen now, could it?"

Huh? Daley did raise property taxes - including the largest such hike at the time in Chicago's history.

*

*

P.S.:

*

I haven't had the psychic energy to actually watch the interview - and I doubt I've missed anything. Think a little bit harder about the opportunity (and responsibility) you have, please.

*

Then again . . .
