Chicago’s government-run health care is almost as horrible as its government-run schools

This article from CBS is a great example of the mindset of the people who run the city of Chicago.

Chicago set up a government run health care clinic inside a garbage truck garage. Only after the media reported on it did the government decide it was a bad idea.

The mindset that says it’s a good idea to run a health care clinic in such a filthy environment, is the same mindset that is in charge of running Chicago’s public schools.

CBS reports:

clinic that had been set up in a garbage truck garage

workers were complaining about unsanitary conditions at the clinic

blood being drawn for cholesterol and triglyceride tests inside a garage that “reeked of garbage and decay.”

“The floors and walls were all covered in dirt,” he said. “Maggots and rats tend to show up at night…”

The way the Chicago government runs its health care is almost as bad as the way it runs its schools:

The striking public school teachers in Chicago earn $74,839 per year – and they get summer off.

39% of Chicago’s striking public school teachers send their own children to private schools.

Chicago’s charter schools are still open because their teachers are not on strike.

The U.S. Department of Education reports that 79% of Chicago eighth are graders not grade-level proficient in reading, and 80% are not grade-level proficient in math.

When Barack Obama lived in Chicago, he refused to allow his children to attend Chicago’s public schools.
