    Ignore this warning at you own risk. There will be a huge tug of war between the municipalities which require funds to fund existing and proposed needs and taxpayers who do not want to or cannot afford to fund the insatiable appetite for more and more cash. How would you like to live in Illinois and wake up this morning to a higher tax bill? Someone has to pay or someone has to suffer the cuts.
