WTF? Illinois Makes Obama’s Birthday a State Holiday: The State Is Broke

The Illinois legislature just created a new state commemorative holiday to celebrate the birthday of “favorite son” Barack Obama.
This week, Illinois Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a bill to honor the 44th president’s August 4 birthday. It won’t be a paid holiday for state employees, but Rauner signed the bill saying he hoped the recognition would “bridges across communities,” Fox News reported.
Senate Bill 55 says the day will be “observed throughout the State as a day set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate, and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities.”
