On this week's episode of the WBEZ political podcast The Best Game in town, we talk taxes, from Springfield to the race for Chicago mayor. First, Illinois Public Radio's Amanda Vinicky takes us behind the scenes as the deal went down to raise taxes in Illinois. Then University of Illinois at Chicago professor David Merriman gives us the breakdown of what this income really means for the state. We wrap it all up with the Chicago Reporter's Kimbriell Kelly and blogger/strategist Rebecca Sive on Carol Moseley Braun's tax troubles in the mayor's race.
In today's episode: Illinois' tax hike is now a reality; the bodily perils of Asian carp fishing; What's a "seahawk," anyway?
