Charles Thomas of ABC’s WLS in Chicago reports:
A plan to spend $100 million to build a Barack Obama presidential library in Chicago has taken a step forward. Thursday an Illinois House executive committee approved House Speaker Michael Madigan's bill to construct the library honoring President Obama. Despite the state's precarious fiscal situation, this bill sailed through the committee by a nine to zero vote.
That “precarious” is a nice way of saying “broke” and “bankrupted by the corruption of its political class.”
The high-minded like to call taxes “the price we pay for civilization.”
In Illinois, they call them something else.
