The Blade gave a breakdown of what other employees of governmental institutions pay for their insurance. I think the real comparison should be what the cost is to the families in our community.

The falling attendance numbers for our schools and the migration out of the city to the suburbs due to excessive taxes may not close the city but it will make it look like our next door neighbor in Michigan.
