  1. Part of Rauner’s plan to drive a wedge between unions and social services. He will imply the Democrats caused this by not giving in to his union-busting “Turnaround Agenda”. Rauner doesn’t care.

  2. 50 schools closed! 50 possible shelters (in areas that probably really need them). Why don’t people see this? Those buildings have to at least have some heat going and water can be turned on. It’s better than trying to survive on the streets with no bathroom. Come on!

    • Yeah! Truth! What really makes me nuts is Christians being brainwashed by the fat cat Republican Party..
      And then judging me..not a Trumpite but a Bernie ite..for being a non conservative Christian Democrat or 3rd party Libertarian. .Grief in the face of brainwashed stupidity and judgement..something weird is going on. And many are deceived…

  3. What a scumbag!!! I’d like to take this misanthropic creep to Columbus Drive to the Fairmont Hotel (underpass), just before the intersection with Lower Wacker and drop him off to spend a night with the homeless who erected makeshift, tent-like “shelters” of tarps and old, dirty blankets right across the street from the entrance to the posh hotel. A full night’s visit to some makeshift shelter under any bridge that spans the Kennedy would do, but the one at the Fairmont provides one of the starkest, contrasting displays of how low this Milton Friedman-created, libertarian, social darwinistic America of ours has sunk. Rauner and now his alter-ego, Tweety Orangehair, the something-or-other elect, are its depraved, evil symptoms. This is no exoneration of Chicago’s current mayor. What a commentary that is on our sick society and its even sicker politics and politicians.

  4. Have hope ……if he shuts down everything Jan 1 he is in violation of at least one consent decree. Hopefully the federal judge tosses him in jail

  5. How sad that one of the richest people in Illinois, elected to serve, should say that.
    Another rich man had a similar attitude, but fortunately had a change of heart later–

    First Collector: At this festive time of year, Mr. Scrooge, it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the poor and destitute.
    Ebenezer: Are there no prisons?
    First Collector: Plenty of prisons.
    Ebenezer: And the union workhouses – are they still in operation?
    First Collector: They are. I wish I could say they were not.
    Ebenezer: Oh, from what you said at first I was afraid that something had happened to stop them in their useful course. I’m very glad to hear it.
