From an article by Brad Heath in USA Today:
Chicago rules. This dynamic is a reflection of the very pay-to-play sort of politics exercised for decades by the Chicago Green Machine. Obama rewards those who support him - as would your everyday alderman; and penalizes, by omission, those who supported McCain (or Republicans).
'Counties that supported Obama last year have reaped twice as much money per person from the administration's $787 billion economic stimulus package as those that voted for his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, a USA TODAY analysis of government disclosure and accounting records shows. That money includes aid to repair military bases, improve public housing and help students pay for college.'
As he said, when the other guys brings a knife to a fight, he would bring a gun. More likely a 700 billion dollar plus cannon. His administration has control over our taxpayer dollars to direct funds to favored constituencies - the most favored being those who voted for Barack Obama.
The President of all Americans? Not quite true. His campaign funds the US budget.
Barack H.Obama - Alderman- in-Chief.
