The planned Obama Presidential Center in Chicago is being privately funded, but on Friday city officials estimated how much taxpayers will pay for roadwork and other construction around the center: $175 million.
It was the first time city officials put a specific dollar figure on the expected cost to the public, the Chicago Tribune reported.
During his presidency, Obama racked up more debt than all other presidents before him combined.
Emails received from DML News readers about the $175M have been filled with fury. One person wrote, “I want a lawsuit launched!” Another person said, “We will be paying for this man forever.”
