Last night after news of Obama’s reelection was announced, I headed into downtown Chicago and came across groups of supporters celebrating. The video below was taken of a group that gathered outside the ABC studios. They spoke about how thrilled they were to see that government would be expanding.
One man said to me, “government is not the problem, government is the help.” And another, “All those arts problems, I know I still have a future–I’m an art student….We need just a little bit on taxes and it manages to even out for everyone…really they’re not going to miss $25,000 a year, which could help pay for a whole family for a year. Like, let’s be serious.”
