Well thank goodness it wasn't unanimous. You'd hate to see anyone thinking these spineless assholes were a rubber stamp or something:
- It wasn’t the shut-out he pitched during his rookie season, but Mayor Rahm Emanuel got the win Thursday on the most important City Council vote of the year.
By a vote of 46-to-3 with Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th) missing, aldermen approved Emanuel’s no-new taxes, “calm-before-the-storm” 2013 budget.
The vote on the $6.54 billion budget clears the decks for the main event: a painful solution to the city’s pension crisis that will require both new revenues and concessions from city employees.
The battle has just begun and Rahm is going to play "scorched earth" with us.
Oh, and it sure was nice of Sandi Jackson to represent her constituents so very ably from somewhere else. As someone pointed out, another Jackson collecting a check for a no-show job.
