I guess that Chicago's out-of-control taxes, an unsustainable pension debt, and its soaring murder rate is too much even for these leftists to handle. The rest of the state isn't much better, it's generally safe, there is a lid for now on the state income tax--only because of a Republican governor--but the unfulfilled pension obligations are just an onerous.
From Harper's Bazaar:
The Obamas are reportedly moving to California. Despite renting this family home in Washington DC from [sic] January, they are said to have purchased a new house in Rancho Mirage, a city located just outside Palm Springs in California, according to The New York Post.Barack, Michelle and family will state in DC for a bit--until Sasha graduates from high school. Which means it's very likely that their mansion, purchased with the assistance of convicted felon, Tony Rezko, will be on the market soon.
Rancho Mirage is home to the presidential getaway Sunnylands – said to be the West Coast version of Camp David – meaning that family have probably visited plenty of times and that's why they have decided to settle there.
