In this March, 6, 2014 file photo Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel left, listens while Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti right, looks on during a panel discussion about the issues facing the nation's big cities at the University of Chicago, in Chicago. Emanuel, the hard-charging mayor is intent on fixing what ails the nation’s third-largest city, no matter whom he ticks off in the process. The man once nicknamed “Rahmbo” for his fierce political maneuvering, last week announced an agreement with several unions to help bail out the nation’s worst-funded city pension systems, a festering problem inherited from his predecessor, Richard M. Daley. Emanuel said the deal, which would slice Chicago’s nearly $20 billion shortfall in half by cutting benefits and raising property taxes, would keep the funds from insolvency and avoid massive cuts in services and a record tax hike.
