Obama Cult: Illinois legislators propose bill to make Obama birthday a holiday

Look for other members of the Obama Cult to make similar proposals as his presidency winds down.

As for Illinois, state workers already have too many paid holidays and Obama's home state is beyond broke.

From Breitbart:

Illinois still doesn’t have a budget, the state has practically defaulted on millions in payments to service providers, can’t even pay its lottery winners, but state Democrats have introduced a bill that would make Barack Obama’s birthday a "state holiday" — meaning state workers would have yet another paid holiday added to their generous benefits.

State Rep. André Thapedi and three other Chicago Democrats sponsored House Bill 4654 on February 2 aimed at making Obama’s birthday, August 4, a state holiday. The status means state offices and schools would be closed and state employees would get a paid day off.

But even if they got this dubious benefit, state workers are having other problems. Last September, the state stopped paying health care claims on state employee’s self-insured plans. The move affected up to 150,000 state employees and is likely a harbinger of troubles to come.
