Comment: A property tax freeze is not intended to solve the school funding problem (insofar as there is one). It’s purposes are to head off a collapse and contain what has become an immoral seizure of many hundreds of thousands of Illinoisan’s life savings, as we recently wrote. Actually, come to think of it, maybe letting property taxes continue to rise would solve the school funding issue. Nobody will be here to go to school. By the way, the CTBA is not a “bipartisan fiscal policy think tank,” as advertised. It’s a union/pensioner advocacy operation.
