Smh! Republicans have shut down the federal government. They control the White House and both chambers of Congress, and under their watch, they haven't been able to govern and keep the lights on. #TrumpShutdown reuters.com/article/us-usa…

Who do you blame for the first government shutdown since 2013?

This Presidency just keeps getting worse! #TrumpShutdown is now a reality! Awful awful man!

I have to strongly disagree with Chris Kennedy in this article. Rauner is NOT trying to do what’s best for the state. All he cares about is the 1%, and that does not include the working people of Illinois. Bruce needs a kick in the butt, not an applause sir! twitter.com/chicagotribune…

Chicago State University had a freshmen class of 98 students last year. Now Paul Vallas’ name is being floated to Mayor of Chicago. Do you really think Paul Vallas should be promoted to Mayor of Chicago?
