Todd Stroger is taking a play from Rod Blagojevich and is attempting to hold government hostage. Stroger has done little to cut waste and has continued growing a patronage empire. Instead of settling for what will be needed in the next year to get by, he wants to add jobs and create a surplus. He claims that they will ask for less next go around if they have extra money. Does anyone really believe that lie? he needs to gutb the fat insulating layer in his administration first. Several million would be saved. Its only a drop in the bucket but its a good start.
