The City Of Chicago Closed

56The City of Chicago was closed for business Monday August 17th as part of the 2009 budget, three reduced-service days are planned for 2009.
In addition to reduced service days, all non-union employees were asked to take a series of furlough days and unpaid holidays, and most non-sworn union employees agreed to similar unpaid time off.

Five of the top six employers in Chicago are government.

1 U.S. Government 78,000
2 Chicago Public Schools 43,910
3 City of Chicago 35,570
4 Wal-Mart Stores Inc. 23,453
5 Cook County 22,142
6 State of Illinois 18,124

We’re talking about Libraries, Trash Collections, City Hall, Health Clinics, Police, Fire fighters and Paramedics, most city employees are off… without pay.

Who was the senator of Illinois, Obama. Who was the great community organizer from Chicago, Obama. Who are Chicagoans looking for with HOPE and CHANGE, Obama.  Monday August 17, 2009 I wonder how many Obama supporters are thinking about their choice as they sit at home because the city is closed.

They have two more closing planned, the Friday after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. These closing project a savings of  $8.3 million.. What is to be expected if Obama’s Health Care Reform is approved and cities all over are closed. This is Obama home town, Chicago. Out of all the cities to close Obama Base Town is closed, America this is a warning of how the country will follow.

Is this the future of many cities in the Country. Closing to save money

    Obama cannot keep his hometown afloat, what makes him think he can keep the country floating. Je has got in office and the deficit is a trillion dollars more in six months, hell Bush did better than that. Obama is spending and making proposals like he done lost his mind. I hate I voted for him. I know those that were off today may feel the same, then again they may not, hes the first black president and they have to make him look good. Look good standing in the unemployment line, then thank Obama.

    CHICAGO MUST FEEL PRETTY STUIPD NOW. THE TOWN THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT IS FROM HAD TO SHUT DOWN TO SAVE MONEY. THE WAT OBAMA IS SPENDING MONEY IN WASHINGTON, THE GOVERNMENT MAY HAVE TO SHUT DOWN AGAIN LIKE THEY DID WHEN CLINTON WAS PRESIDENT. THATS WHEN BLOW JOBS START, ASK MONICA AND BILL. I CAN HEAR OBAMA NOW TELLING SOME INTERN HE HAS A JOB FOR HER, STEP IN MY OFFICE

  1. Walmart Inc is government??? WHAT?!?!

    This is a good thing that they are shutting these down. Eventually they are going to have to shrink the federal government that Obama is trying to build so…when they run out of money. My heart goes out to Chicago and I hope they can make it through…but Obama doesn’t seem to want to stop spending…even though his wallets have been empty for some time now.
