Mayor Lori Lightfoot will propose a tax hike on all food and drinks sold in Chicago restaurants to help shrink a massive estimated $838 million shortfall in the 2020 budget. The proposal would double the current .25% tax on food and drinks sold at retail establishments and restaurants, the mayor’s office said. Aldermen will need to approve the increase, which would kick in Jan. 1. (Snip) The tax Lightfoot wants to raise is but a fraction of the levy Chicago diners pay every time they eat out.

Sales taxes in Chicago already top 10%. What's a little bit more? At some point the camel's back is broken.

Excellent way to have both customers and businesses move out. You would think they could cut spending on some of their far-left nutjob projects to raise the money, but no, they're rather kill the cash cows (customers and restaurants) that serve the people. Chicago has never once done the wise thing. They have always done the easy thing.

Leftists LOVE doubling taxes. And they always need more OPM. MORE OPM! It is their mantra. I avoid Chicago, SanFran and NYC as much as possible. Horrible places with a few things worth visiting. I have pretty much exhausted the things worth seeing in each, thank goodness.

FTA: Dating to her campaign for mayor earlier this year, Lightfoot has repeatedly promised to cut expenses wherever she could before seeking to raise politically unpopular taxes. Noticed there were no cuts in expenses proposed, and I would bet that property taxes are going up.

Here's a counter proposal. For every dollar raised by increasing taxes, spending must be cut 3 dollars. Soon there would be no need for additional taxes. It worked great for federal regulations.

FTA: The sales tax in Chicago is 10.25 percent, one of the highest in the nation. The current .25 city tax is on top of that, as is a a 1% food and beverage tax for the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority that is levied at downtown restaurants as well as the two airports. As for that Metro Pier & Expo tax, it extends far beyond "downtown". For those familiar with the city - this tax boundaries are Diversey on the north (Lakeview), the Stevenson Expy on the south and Ashland on the west. This is NOT downtown Chicago but it is for their tax grab purposes.

Another route to kill off the restaurant business in Chicago. How about trimming back city government pensions since that accounts for most of the shortfall. They can’t afford it. And taxing small businesses into bankruptcy is not the solution.

It used to be fun to go into the City and have dinner and a show, or Lunch and shopping at Christmas. Now, even in the Heart of the shopping district it's not safe from the gangs that swarm and grab purses and attack shoppers. Now, they want to go after the "Restaurant Crowd". Go ahead, we'll see how that works out!

On any given day, the Trump campaign is plastering ads all over Facebook, YouTube and the millions of sites served by Google, hitting the kind of incendiary themes — immigrant invaders, the corrupt media — that play best on platforms where algorithms favor outrage and political campaigns are free to disregard facts. Even seemingly ominous developments for Mr. Trump become fodder for his campaign. When news broke last month that congressional Democrats were opening an impeachment inquiry, the campaign responded with an advertising blitz aimed at firing up the president’s base.

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg responded Sunday after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took issue with the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful's approach to fundraising. The far-left congresswoman accused Buttigieg of protecting a system of "big money politics" instead of trying to make it a thing of the past, touting the merits of "small-dollar grassroots campaigns," which she said were more successful than his. Buttigieg said he's quite familiar with grassroots campaigning, but said it will take more than that for Democrats to succeed in 2020. “Well, first of all, you don’t go from mayor of South Bend to a competitive

DENVER — Democrats who control Colorado's Statehouse are asking voters in November to dismantle part of a state tax regime that for decades has served as a model for fiscal conservatives nationwide.

Polls taken after the September debate, then before and after this week's debate, showed a sharp decline in support for Joe Biden among all Americans.

WASHINGTON - Democratic lawmakers leading an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump have heard days of testimony from a parade of senior government officials. But they have yet to hear from the whistleblower who sparked the probe. And it may stay that way. In the end, it may not matter, some Democratic lawmakers said, because the other officials who have testified, Trump's own statements, a trove of texts between top U.S. diplomats, and other White House documents have largely substantiated the whistleblower's complaint that Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden.

At Tuesday’s Democratic debate, Sen.

Hard-working middle-class families will be spared, she said. Warren is officially leading the 2020 race – she overtook Joe Biden in the latest Quinnipiac poll, though by a slim margin (30% vs. 27%) – and that’s scary to big business, which she has long characterized as having oversize influence on the overall economy.
