^ If you read that article, it is spurring a shitload of commentary. A lot of people are passionate and unhappy about this issue.

Rahm needs to remember that a lot of the money behind his reelection is coming from these kinds of people, not a good idea to kill the goose that lays the golden egg.

In addition, if you read between the lines of his new Affordable Housing Proposal it is essentially like saying that Chicago's neighborhoods are not good enough for the poor. Why not renovate more housing in the neighborhoods for more moderate or lower income people? Instead, you're putting low income people in luxury highrises downtown for virtually free. It's the worse idea ever, and you're basically sending the wrong message.

Definitely the worst thing Rahm has done as mayor.
