    Your 2 percent property tax is not sustainable with current pension obligations. You will be paying 4 percent in 10 years unless pension obligations are cut or other taxes go up.

    You should stop trying to argue pension math, especially since many posters on here have advanced degrees and also work in finance.

    Within the next 10 years pensions will be cut back and promises will not be kept. You agree that police and firemen pensions are the problem but you do not believe paying retired teachers 80k for life is a problem?

    Many of us posters are tired of your pro-union stance and are quite frankly tired of paying our taxes to support unsustainable pensions. You cannot just tax your way out of this jam. If you do this people like me will just move and another state will get our tax dollars.

    Do you really believe that Illinois pensions are not more generous an in surrounding states? Not even close between Indiana and Illinois.

    As a taxpayer I am fed up with paying for public sector pensions and have considered moving because of it. We are now even considering buying house in NWI to avoid the ridiculous taxes. No way elementary teacher should be paid 80k per year after they retire.
