As Chicago faces sky high crime rates and an exodus of major corporations, a left-wing group funded by Democratic megadonors George Soros and Pierre Omidyar is calling on the Windy City’s far-left mayor to slash the police force and raise taxes on businesses.
The Action Center on Race and the Economy, in a report entitled “First We Get the Money,” urged Mayor Brandon Johnson (D.) to cut the police budget by 9 percent and eliminate 1,000 vacant police positions in order to defund what the center calls a “racist policing system.” The group also called on the city to reimpose a “head tax” of $33 per employee on companies that have more than 50 workers. The measures are part of a proposal that the Action Center said will raise $12 billion to fund a “just Chicago” and “true community safety.”
