Ten Democrats on the 17-member County Board have refused to repeal Stroger's tax increase: William Beavers, Jerry "Iceman" Butler, Earlean Collins, John Daley, Roberto Maldonado, Joseph Mario Moreno, Joan Patricia Murphy, Deborah Sims, Robert Steele and Larry Suffredin. Suffredin appears unlikely to support much of Stroger's proposed borrowing. But the other nine Dems can give Stroger the majority he wants. They've already tied their re-election prospects to his tax increase. If they want voters to be absolutely certain that they're loyal to Stroger and not to the citizens of Cook County, they'll stick taxpayers with this even higher debt load.A den of Dem thieves.
