Leadership in Illinois — all Democrats. Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. Of course, they’re all blaming each other! Can’t blame Republicans; they’re aren’t any!
State pension fund is $44 Billion in debt, worst in the country. Chicago sales tax is 10.25%, highest in country (Look ’em up if you want). Chicago school system is rated one of the worst in the country.
This is the political culture that Obama brings from Illinois; And he’s gonna ‘fix’ Washington politics for us!
