Chicago is a stronghold of the Democratic Party and has been home to many influential politicians, including the current President of the United States, Barack Obama.
The city's notoriety expressed in popular culture is found in novels, plays, movies, songs, various types of journals (e.g., sports, entertainment, business, trade, and academic), and the news media. Chicago has numerous nicknames, which reflect the impressions and opinions about historical and contemporary Chicago.

Highest Cigarette Tax in the Nation
Chicago, Illinois smokers are unhappy with the, yet again, rising prices on cigarettes. The cigarettes prices in Chicago are already the highest in the nation and the Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel plans on increasing the tax again. It will raise the cigarette prices by 75 cents. Gas stations, tobacco shops, and more are already feeling the decrease in revenue and will feel it even harder. Proposed taxes will lower the profit of the shops and will ultimately cause layoffs due to decreased funds.
