Comment: Keep in mind that most Chicagoans have little or no ability to help pay this. Half live in or near poverty. Billing this to those with ability to pay means hundreds of thousands of dollars per household.

And that’s using the official numbers, which is what the Civic Federation reported here, which are crap. The real pension liability is much worse.
