Casinos, mills, refinery ought to generate enough

I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired about hearing that Lake County is the only county without an income tax! Show me one other county in this state that has four casinos, a huge refinery and steel mills. I would think the revenue from these entities would be enough for this county.

Remember when they wanted the lottery? This was going to hold down tax increases. Remember when they wanted casinos? We would not have to worry about our taxes going up.

As far as I am concerned, if this county cannot make it on all the gaming, mills and refinery income, then let's change from tax-crazy Democratic control to Republican control and say no to the income tax!
