Sounds interesting, but how do you determine what is a higher quality of life? That seems subjective.

Well, speaking in Park Ridge terms: plowed streets, affordable park district programs, community events, the ability to take care of our seniors, full day kindergarten, state of the art schools and parks, art programs, flood control, parking structures, community outreach, teen center.

No, I'll continue to work hard to create a better quality of life for myself and my family. Don't need the government to provide a better quality of life for me. Their standards don't agree with mine.

So the bottom line is that we pay a TON of taxes and I've had to put in $8000 of flood control, my street is barely plowed and we cannot use our 'community' center because we aren't members. Yet, business members get a better price!

Never did and never will understand why anyone would trust our government, and especially the people who run it, to make their lives better

It's a safety net much in the same way a college student losing their job can move back in with mom & dad. Except too many people think their parent's basement is a permanent residence.

That question that was asked was "would you pay higher taxes for a better quality of life" My response was to the question that was posted. No reason to read the article
