I understand that teacher's do not have opulent salaries but the statement about throwing good money after bad is biased. From what I have heard, the schools are structurally sound. Also, the state should not have tell us what repairs have to be made as they should have been completed as necessary. Doesn't the school district have paid staff to understand the state laws for maintenance…

Rauner doesn't have to tell voters in Cook County to vote. they'll be voting early and often anyway, heck even dead ones vote in Cook county and republicans vote for democrats when using faulty voting machines.

Stolen was a purse, wallet, credit card, iPad, 18-inch TV, GPS, cash, diamond earrings with matching necklace, and sunglasses. Doesn't everyone keep those items on an unlocked car behind your house?

REBEL MEDIA: Obama to shake the money tree for Our Man Dick

5 months ago by Bob Gough

President Barack Obama returns to Chicago this week  to participate in two events for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Obama will spend the night in Chicago and depart Friday, according to the White House.

The trip is a push for the re-election of Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, the Senate assistant majority leader.

The Chicago Tribune reports the schedule calls for Obama to attend a fundraising reception Thursday at the home of Michael and Tanya Polsky and a dinner at the home of Fred Eychaner, according to an invitation to the events.

Eychaner, the founder of the Newsweb Corp., is a top fundraiser for Obama and other Democrats.

Michael Polsky is president and CEO of Invenergy LLC, based in Chicago. The firm develops, owns and operates power generation facilities in North America and Europe, its Web site says.

Durbin and Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who chairs the DSCC, sent out the invites, which ask for $1,000 of reception guests, $10,000 of reception sponsors, and $15,000 of reception co-chairs. Dinner costs $17,500 per person, or $35,000 per couple. Better be steak and lobster...and good beer.

Sorry, Quincy. There's not enough money down here to make Dick come see us with much regularity these days.
