Illinois Libs Propose Bill Making Obama’s Birthday A State Holiday…But Did It Pass?

The level of reverence liberals have for their Lord and Savior Barack Obama has reached a fever pitch since he left office.


They look back on his administration with rose colored glasses, refusing to see his legacy as it is: plagued by scandal after scandal, lie after lie, and poor decision after poor decision.

Now, in the state where Obama once served as an underwhelming Senator, Rep. Sonya Harper (D-Chicago) has proposed a bill to honor the man that many of us would just like to forget.

From The Daily Wire:

“The fourth day of August of each year shall be a legal holiday to be known as Barack Obama’s Birthday to be observed as a day on which to hold appropriate exercises in commemoration of our illustrious President,” the bill stated. “When August fourth shall fall on a Sunday, the following Monday shall be held and considered the holiday.”

The bill drew criticism from many in the Illinois House of Representatives.

Some stated it was impractical economically to shut down government buildings for this holiday, and suggested it would be better to have an informal day of celebration (likely in an attempt to appease the liberals members of the House.)

Thankfully, and hilariously, the bill failed by six votes.

The measure may be introduced again in the future, but hopefully someone introduces a bill in the meantime declaring January 20th, 2017 a national holiday. The day Obama left office for good is one that’s definitely worth celebrating!
