Transit superagency faces hurdles

Author: Editor

The authors of a sweeping report calling for the reshaping of the Chicago-area mass transit system into a single superagency acknowledged Monday that their recommendations must overcome significant political obstacles to become reality.

George Ranney Jr., a co-chair of the Northeastern Illinois Public Transit Task Force that developed the report over the past seven months, said the proposals would need to be considered deeply by the General Assembly and Gov. Pat Quinn, who created the task force.

"It's an ambitious program," Ranney said of the 94-page report. "It's an election year. Guys like (House Speaker Michael) Madigan will look at it carefully. … It's not going to fly through."

Obamacare horror stories tough to come by, so here's a heartbreaker

Author: Editor

Obamacare is destroying the lives of hardworking, patriotic Americans. People on the television have assured me of that, and the supporting facts are pretty clearly laid out in the 579 emails my grandmother just forwarded to me.

But for some reason it's proving difficult to find these destroyed-life, hardworking, patriotic Americans.

It seems like every time a Republican lawmaker — or a conservative group like Americans for Prosperity — brings up a person suffering under the yoke of Obamacare, the fact-obsessed lamestream media swoop in and show that the person's situation is more nuanced and less suffering-ish.
