Skip to comments.Illinois voters don't want tax money going for Obama library

Erin Carlson of NBC Chicago reports:
Results showed that just 29 percent of likely voters approve of the state-financing proposal, which Illinois House Speaker Madigan successfully pushed last month amid vocal opposition from Republicans and just about everyone who thinks that offering nine figures as bait to attract the library here is perhaps not such a great idea given how strapped for cash we are. (snip)
Broken down demographically, 48 percent of Chicago poll-takers support using state money to fund the library while 43 percent disapprove; African-Americans also endorse the plan, by a tiny margin of 45-44 percent.
Democrats, who are growing tired of Madigan in general, opposed his bill 48-44. Other demos echoed that disapproval, including 68 percent of women, 66 percent of men, 74 percent of Latinos and whites, 77 percent of downstate-dwellers and -- shocker -- 80 percent of Republicans, according to Miller's poll.

Silly voters. They don't really have a say now do they. This isn't for Illinois. It's for Chicago.
I very much doubt they’ll have anything to say on the matter.
Their masters will decide for them.
1. Restrict the Obama Presidential Library to documents authored by Obama.
2. Call Porta-John for an inexpensive structure, readily available, able to store all known Obama written documents, priced such that Chicongo can afford it, and easily positioned on existing City of Chicongo property.
But wont they need construction workers first? let see if any contractor will by dying to build it, just like they were in New York City(not a library,but u all remember the 9/11 victory thing).
The measure of a man is what he does with power.
Now $100 mil to hang him in effigy would be OK in my book. Or maybe about $100.00 for tar and feathers would be better. I am sure that FReepers can come up with some good ways to spend the money.
but didnt the left just announce that all sea levels are going to rise 113 feet? so much for building anything near water, right?
That’s OK he could probably put in Nairobi
Too bad, peasants. You vote for a one-party state, you don’t get a say in what they spend your money on.
They should increase the taxes on Chicagoans.
Won't work. Moochele's butt will never fit through the door.
Probably be vandalized before they finish construction.

Thanks for reminding me of the FLOTUS steatopygia problem.
I must therefore change my suggested Obama Library from a common Porta-John to a Porta-John for the disabled. The ramp and wide door will allow FLOTUS access. Thanks to your sagacious reminder, the Obama Library will be able to accommodate the disabled.
All is well that ends well, even when the end is enormous.
I disagree since you said, “They should increase the taxes on Chicagoans.” The library should be funded by private donations. Chicago needs a conservative mayor candidate who will promise to cut the gas tax, alcohol tax, parking tax, and restaurant tax.
