CC Budget wars

Some of the things most affected by Toddler's budget are pictured: Stroger Hospital, Cook County Courts, Cook County Jail, and Cook County Juvenile Detention Center. All located with a South Side of Chicago address.

"This budget doesn't make sense," Commissioner Tony Peraica (R-Riverside) said. "This is taking smoke and mirrors to a new level here."

Not everyone is thrilled with Todd's new budget
"This would appear to be not a complete budget document if it has cuts to be determined later," said Commissioner Forrest Claypool (D-Chicago). "If that's the case, then it's not a budget presentation at all but a phony document."
Even some commissioners who have been working with Stroger on the budget said it was incomplete.
"I don't know how you can pass a budget without those items being specified," Commissioner Mike Quigley (D-Chicago) said."

Go Bears! Head Coach Lovie Smith & Brian Urlacher

    Cook County Board President Todd Stroger proposed a $3 billion budget Tuesday that cuts staff and avoids a tax increase, but one commissioner attacked it as a "phony document" because many spending choices haven't been made.
    P>In his budget address to the county board, Stroger said he had completed his "legal responsibility" by proposing a budget that closed the county's $502 million budget gap "without fiscal gimmicks."

    It makes no sense Chicago Native. Todd Urkel just had a major cuts in the prison guard, law enforcement, etc. A 3 billion dollar budget and cuts? How in the hell is he going to cut down corruption in that city with a slim staff and city employees?

    Wow, the juvenile center is being affected by Toddster's budget? And with his budget, some of these juvees will walk or put on probation because of overcrowdness.. What kind of plan does Todd have? The Gerbil plan?

    I expected no less. Of course on the news last night they interviewed a very unhappy Commissioner Forrest Claypool (who also will be helping run Obama's campaign, should he run) and of course Forrest Claypool very unhappy. Then they got the positive spin by interviewing ....yep....Bill Beavers who blah blah ......Todd did a good job....blah blah.
    Really sad state seeing how law enforcement & healthcare are going to be hit.

    The man without a budget is a man without a plan, a man without a purpose, and man without a city..

    The more that they CYA Todd, the more worst the city of Chicago will be.. I feel sorry for the taxpayers...
