Re: “As schools starve, Mayor Emanuel finds $5 million for hot dogs

I lived in west Chicago for 13 months and could not believe how corrupt the state of Illinois is let along the city of Chicago. How can anybody in a sane state of mind live there? Property taxes are outrageous (given there are other states with high taxes) how can you let things fall so in dept that property taxes need raised and then still not enough money for anything. So speaking on schools, the Obama's being from that part of the world, how can Michelle get on her high horse, mandate that schools start serving lunches that she see's fit when the school my boy went to doesn't even offer lunches for the students because it wasn't in the budget to put in cooking equipment even though they have a cafeteria. So kids have to pack non nutritional lunches everyday, but Michelle go's around the country claiming to be this miracle worker making all these schools serve lunches her way, when schools near her hometown will not provide students a hot meal. Chicago and the state of Illinois are so backwards. Proof is when Mayor Emanuel threatens the state that if they don't revamp Chicago's pension plan for city workers (again because they are all crooks and used that money) he is going to have to raise property taxes 160 percent. REALLY???? I could go on but I believe the damage has been done.
