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.

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

Chicagos 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.
