Obama Pays Off Chicago and County $100 Million a Year Federal Waiver

-By Warner Todd Huston

It must be nice to have friends in high places! Ask Cook County, Illinois Board President Toni Preckwinkle who just reaped a huge back room payoff from Da Prez in Washington.

In the best Chicago-style politics, the White House quietly awarded Cook County a $100,000,000 per year pay off via new Medicaid “waivers.”

For those unaware, Cook County is the home of Chicago, the most corrupt city, in the most corrupt county, in the most corrupt state in the union. It is also the home of President Barack “Scarface” Obama.

Over the past weekend the Obama administration approved a request by Cook County to give the county $100 million a year to care for indigents that come to its hospitals for care.

That’s $100 million in federal tax dollars going right into the county’s pockets.

Of course, it’s supposed to go for healthcare, but what are the chances that the most corrupt county in the nation will actually spend it on such pedestrian things as healthcare?

This is an early gift from the federal government letting Cook county into its Obamacare payoff that wouldn’t have come until 2014. Of course, this is all assuming that the next president and/or Congress don’t eliminate Obamacare or materially alter it so that such a windfall isn;t due the county.

Ah, but this is Obama’s home county, right? We gots ta bring home da bacon for the home folks, right? And, what a shock, just before an election, too!
