Chicago continues to face some severe budget problems, and city leaders are reportedly considering raising property taxes:

But if the madness is allowed to continue, there might not be much property left to tax.

However, Mayor Lori Lightfoot hopes businesses including Walmart won’t let all the rioting and calls for the police to be defunded won’t keep them from re-opening:

That’s about how things are going right now.
