Will Barack Obama's Constituents At Grove Parc Support Him?

Sadly, I bet they will in spite of the utter squalor of their housing development. Barack Obama as a state senator coauthored an Illinois law creating a new pool of tax credits for developers. As a US senator, he pressed for increased federal subsidies. And as a presidential candidate, he has campaigned on a promise to create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund that could give developers an estimated $500 million a year. This is what his "Affordable Housing Trust Fund" and $500 million tax dollars yields for those looking for hope and change using your tax dollars:

This is a damn shame. Barack Obama is just a Chicago bureaucrat who doesn't give a tinker's damn about the needs of the people he has on the streets campaigning for him who have been trained in the art of "community organizing" put forth by Saul Arlinsky. These same developers who were recipients of the set aside just happen to be large contributors to his presidential campaign. I wonder why? What will it take for us to get wise to this "Obama-nation". Check out the full story Here.

You're right, this is a da#@ shame. I live in Chicago. Work within 10 blocks of Grove Parc. Have a cousin that lived in Grove Parc for 10 years. And my uncle was the maintenance supervisor there for almost 10 years.

Get it straight - the buildings are in that condition because of the tenants not having any sort of pride about where they live. They have damaged the properties themselves. The grounds and building crew work 24/7 to keep the development in a livable condition. The residents have destroyed their homes. Not all of them look like the ones shown in the video.(too much like right to show both extremes)

When is enough, enough? It was never meant for those people to live there for a lifetime. Someone needs to remind them.
