The City of Chicago is sitting on $71 Billion in government debt and former President Obama wants to add to that.
President Obama has selected the City Of Chicago for his Presidential Center. The center is not a presidential library which has caused a lawsuit according to Breitbart.com. What isn’t being talked much about is how much former President Obama is making the taxpayers shell out for his building.
Former President Barack Obama’s presidential center has had its fair share of opposition from critics who say the proposed center—which would include a 450-space parking lot, a recording studio, basketball courts, and a children’s play garden—would not provide benefits to the local community.
The proposed center would also cost taxpayers a pretty penny. City officials announced in February the center would cost taxpayers $175 million.
