Comment: Take it for what it’s worth — nothing. The city numbers discussed here by the Civic Federation, like city budgets, exclude the central problem, which is continuing losses in pensions. And the numbers are fudged, as we have been writing. The Civic Federation lost its way some time ago, as we wrote earlier.

Mark, I have to call B.S. on this article numbers don’t add up. Forgotten or just intentionally left out is wheres the money coming for retirees health care I believe that city just lost a ruling on that front. Also something never discussed is the Chicago Park District retirees who are also suing same as the retirees from the city and state did. So they will be inline for money as well but as the article stated no more TAX increases.
