Chicago Politics Coming to Washington? No Thank You.

October 2, 2008

Dear Illinois Leadership – All Democrats:

Senators Obama and Durbin,
Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr.
Governor Rod Blogojevich
House Leader Mike Madigan
Attorney General Lisa Madigan (Mike’s Daughter)
Mayer Richard M. Daly (Son of Mayor Richard J. Daley)

Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?
– Body Count: 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago …. 221 killed in Iraq.

Perhaps you will do better with the Social Security System? I don’t think so.
– IL State Pension Fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country.

Perhaps your tax policy is better? Not unless you get high grades the higher taxes are.
– Cook County (Chicago)sales tax 10.25% – highest in the nation.

Perhaps your education policy is worthwhile? Not really.
– Chicago school system rated one of worst in the country.

This is the political culture that Obama surrounded himself with in Illinois and he’s going to “fix Washington”?

Perhaps not.
