It’s becoming absolutely clear that Obama all these years was lying and manipulating the American public whenever that was convenient for him.
So we finally wake up and elected a real President for us, but the state of Illinois want to give Obama a monument for his “wonderful politics”
But what disgusted me more is how much of our money it will take to make this monument!
The Chicago Sun Times first reported Friday that Illinois lawmakers had approved $174 million for roadwork in and around Jackson Park related to the development of the center.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a former Obama White House chief of staff, described the infrastructure improvements as “money well spent.”
“Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our partners in Springfield also saw the potential for what this means for all of Illinois,” Emanuel said in a statement Friday.
His office said that the funding would go toward meeting “the transportation infrastructure needs related to the Obama Center, from road construction to traffic mitigation to pedestrian safety to parkland enhancement.”
“The state’s $174 million investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent,” he said.
The Washington Examinerreports that Illinois taxpayers will also shoulder half of a $50 million project to overhaul an above-ground rail stop two miles from the center. The other half will be funded via a Transportation Department grant.
The Center won approval from Chicago’s city council last month, despite significant resistance and protests from its opponents, who are skeptical of the Obama Foundation’s claim that the center will support thousands of new jobs and have a total economic impact of $3.1 billion in its first 10 years.
