Every previous Presidential Library has been built with private funding. But, of course, the Unprecedented Mr. Obama is special, and Illinois Democrats have introduced a bill to put Illinois taxpayers on the hook for funding his.
Little-noticed out there in Springfield, the Democrat House Speaker John Madigan is pushing a bill now before his Democrat chamber to put up $100 million as good-faith money in the less-than sizzling competition to host the Barack Hussein ObamaCare Presidential Library and Clinic.
“It’s clearly a good investment for the future,” said Madigan after his obedient House Executive Committee unanimously endorsed the idea.
Personally, I find all these Presidential Libraries and Centers to be grotesque and imperial, not to mention offensive to the notion of Constitutional governance. I just don’t have the sociopathic narcissism in my psychological make-up to want or need the level of adulation presidents apparently need.
Did I mention that the state of Illinois is more or less fiscally bankrupt (like all of the other big blue states?) Even if they had $100M to spend, there are surely better ways to spend it than Building a Taj Mahal for the Lightbringer.
