April Fool's Day Came Early In Bankrupt Illinois

Common Sense Commentary: A State Holiday In Honor Of Chicagoan, Barack Obama? More appropriate would be one for Scarface, Al Capone, Jimmy Hoffa or Corrupt Mayor, Richard Daley. RB 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Barack Obama's name is revered in his home state. But the Illinois House has rejected making his birthday a state holiday.
(by 6 votes).
Legislation to make the 44th president's Aug. 4th birthday a state holiday fell six votes short Tuesday. Chicago Democratic Rep. Sonya Harper says it would honor a man who adopted Chicago as his home and served in the Illinois State Senate.

But Rep. Steven Andersson of Geneva suggested it be honorary. The Republican floor leader says even Obama wouldn't want the cash-strapped state to give state workers another paid day off.

He noted that Tampico, Illinois native, and 40th president Ronald Reagan's Feb. 6th birthday isn't a holiday.

The vote was 54-57. Harper used a procedure allowing another vote later. 

Response from my friend, American Caliber Man of Illinois:
Yeah, another day for state employees here to take off while everybody else works.
    Obama was not born here (in Ill.) and except for his two kids has no relatives from here.  Reagan was born here and lived here all the way through college.  He has many cousins who live here.
     Dixon has the Reagan house and a Reagan museum, statues, a monument on the beach at Lowell Park where as a lifeguard he pulled 77 people from the Rock River over a number of summers.
     So what will they do for Obama? Chicago tour guide: This is the gay bar he hung out at.  Here is the place where he plotted with other communists like Bill Ayers. This is the church where he listened to the racial hate sermons from Reverend Wright and sometimes had Nation of Islam Rev. Farrakhan as a guest speaker.  Here's where he and a bunch of Nation of Islam guys planned the Million Man March.
It would be interesting, to say the least. American Caliber Man
My Comment: Fitting for Bankrupt Chicago, Murder Capital of the world and most corrupt city government in America's history. RB
