I am currently reading Stanley Kurtz's "Spreading the Wealth, How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities."
Basically, Obama hates the 'burbs as they are elitist and racist in his view. He will drain the suburbs of cash to fund the cities with the goal that residents of the suburbs will find that they will be gently (or not so gently) forced to concentrate in the cities.
Kurtz shows how he has been groomed for years by the Chicago "regionalists" and will execute this with a vengeance if he gets a second term.
Equally shared misery. That’s the way Dims will do ya.
(ruin the city, then spread the ruin to the suburbs via mass transit and runaway pensions)
