Only In Obama & Daley's Chicago, Higher Fares, Less Service, 300 Jobs Lost....(Hope and Change Alert)

Here's some local problems making the Chicago headlines really upsetting already pissed off and overstressed commuters, those poor Chicagoans who already suffer through some of the worst and most expensive daily rush hours coming and going as it is.....thankfully I now work at home and only see that stuff in my memory rear view mirror as a longtime Chicago Trib employee......

I paid my dues in that mess, believe me.

So the news is it looks like Daley didn't get the "Obama Hope and Change "express memo's ......and their new slogan over at the Chicago Transit Authority starting today is basically......
This is the result of poor planning and no "Plan B",  as they all placed too many eggs in that Olympic basket as Obama, Daley and all the other Chicago pols are still smarting from last week's unexpected Copenhagen shaft now that their Obama loyalty & stimulus payback checks didn't pan out as planned.

So,  they do what democrats always deny and yet do best, and that is ultimately send us the bills for their mismanagement and graft in the form of higher taxes and cut services!

That's hope and change?

Where's the Chicago CTA bailout, after all, everyone else from sh** to Cheyenne got some "free money", what about the CTA?

Un-Fare Hike | NBC Chicago: "The Chicago Transit Authority would like you to dig deeper into your pockets for a ride on the train. They want you to pay more for the bus, too, but good luck finding one.

In unveiling its 2010 budget recommendations, the CTA has announced service cuts and fare hikes intended to help close a $300 million budget gap, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Chicago leaders had hoped that hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics would generate millions in federal dollars to overhaul its century-old subway and elevated train system -- the second-largest in the nation. But we know how that turned out.

So consider these fare-hikes and service cuts a 2016 consolation prize:

The budget proposal includes a measure to increase basic train rides to $3, up from $2.25; Bus fares will increase to $2.50 from $2.25; 30-day full fare passes will jump to $110 from $86; and seven-day passes will rise from $23 to $30." read more at NBC5.com
