"Voter turnout in Chicago for OWEBAMA = 74% Voter turnout in Chicago a year earlier for Emanuel = 43%

The people of Chicago think their problems will be solved at the Federal level, with Federal money. It's the basic premise of Liberalism.

It's not working out very well.

I feel terrible for the kids, honestly. I just don't think we're ready to make the parents responsible. Liberals have spent the last 50 years convincing them that Gov't is responsible for their well being.

It's not working out so good.

"nothing changes, the city keeps getting worse and worse"

If the same number of voters turned out in local elections, that turned out for OWEBAMA in the Presidential election they could get the real change they need.

They have nobody to blame but themselves.

Huge debt, unfunded programs, high taxes, gun control, crime and corruption

Chicago is where OWEBAMA is from........and it's where he's trying to take all of us.

It's no wonder there's money for programs.

Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas was astonished by the amount of local government debt that Chicago-area households hold, according to a report released by her office on Tuesday.

The average debt per household in Chicago is over $63,000, based on municipal shortfalls and underfunded pension obligations. In the suburbs, the average is just under $33,000.

“We knew that debt and unfunded pension obligations were serious problems at the state and federal level and assumed that a similar pattern would follow at the local level. But, quite frankly, I was stunned by the depth of the crisis for local governments,” Pappas said in the statement. “This goes well beyond big cities, where you expect financial challenges. These fiscal problems permeate townships, villages, school districts, park districts, fire protection districts and more, and the taxpayers are on the hook.”

Local governments in Cook County hold a total of $108 billion in debt and unfunded pensions, according to the report. The latter term refers to the projected difference between the value of the governments' pension assets -- what workers will pay in, and the interest on that money -- and what the agencies will owe to retirees.

The Chicago Board of Education is one of the biggest holders of unfunded pension liability, totaling over $4 billion in unfunded pensions. The city of Chicago itself has just shy of $12 billion of the same.

All told, municipal bodies in Cook County have around $25 billion in unfunded pension liability, just under a quarter of the total debt in the area.

There is a fine irony in Pappas crying foul over heavy burdens placed on taxpayer dollars: earlier this year, she was the subject of a Better Government Association investigation indicating that she spent $94,000 a year in taxpayer dollars employing a driver and another $57,000 on a cleaning lady.

We're too busy working 50-60 hours a week to pay the taxes for their 'programs'.

Roc-em, are you really more qualified to prescribe gun control measures than the law enforcement departments of NYC, Chicago, and LA ?

Are you aware that the Chicago murder rate of the last few years is less than half what it was 20 years ago?

Do you think maybe a _national_ ban on certain guns would have even greater benefit in the reduction of shootings in _every_ locality?
