Chicago politics is corruption just like every other city and area in the United States.
Personally, I'd rather not get the Olympics here but if we do maybe we can finally upgrade the El and get that damn 100 year old Kinzie Street Railroad Bridge down from the open position over the River...
Chicago lost the 2016 Olympic Bid and the Punk Ass Bitch Right Wing Republican Party of Chicken Hawk Traitors cheer because Obama "lost". More Cheers for Obama's Loss from 3xTime Medal of Honor winner Bill Kristol's Weekly Standard...
Republicans and their Ilk hate America and the majority of the American People. The really hate you. Republicans want Americans to work themselves to death. They want you to use up the flower of your youth in Industry or the Military and die quickly when you become sick, old and tired. They support Profit over People at all times and fight all attempts to stop the Corporate Ownership and Slavery over the poor and middle class.
Republicans hate you, fight to profit on your death, work to have you die overseas and ensure you don't get medical coverage at home. Republicans want you to die.
Here's Chicago Public Radio story showing how Republicans hate people and support the Corporate Kleptocracy by allowing Corporations to profit on your death:
Until the 1980s, companies could take out life-insurance policies only on key personnel. Then many states started allowing employer-owned insurance on rank-and-file workers. That coverage became known in business circles as janitors insurance or even dead-peasants insurance.
Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Chicago) is raising a red flag. He chairs the U.S. House Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit. Gutiérrez introduced a bill that would ban employer-owned life insurance unless the worker earns at least a million dollars a year from the company. He presented the legislation Wednesday on the House floor.
