If the Illiana toll road is approved you can put a “for sale” sign on the Gary/Chicago airport!

Too bad Fox News wasn’t around when Social Security and Medicare were rolled out — they could have sabotaged those programs too.

I just paid $921 today for my Medicare prescription drugs — welcome to the famous doughnut hole. I want to thank the Democrats for delaying the closing of the doughnut hole for over two years so that they could include it in Obamacare and be able to brag about it.
