President Obama is one of the greatest Presidents of America. Hailing from Chicago, Obama made his way through Harvard Law to become one of the most influential men in the world – the 44th President of the United States. However, Trump supporters are brainwashed to dislike Obama, and it appears as though the Trump administration’s main intention is to repeal every single Obama-era system.
Even though Obama has left the White House, the people of Illinois still honor him for doing such a great impact on the world. Granted, all the Republicans in Illinois are furious over the state legislatures move, while the rest of the state is celebrating. Republican Governor, Bruce Rauner, signed a bill proclaiming August 4th a new state holiday, Barack Obama Day.
The bill was named Senate Bill 55 and was created to celebrate the birthday of Barack Obama a state holiday. The bill moved to both houses of the Illinois legislature without a declining vote.
Sources say the holiday was “set apart to honor the 44th President of the United States of America who began his career serving the People of Illinois in both the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate and dedicated his life to protecting the rights of Americans and building bridges across communities.”
While the Barack Obama Day is mostly an observance holiday, meaning banks will still be open, and no one will get a paid day off from their jobs, the holiday will work as a “day of acknowledgment and celebration.” Illinois Governor said: “It’s incredibly proud for Illinois that the president came from Illinois. I think it’s awesome, and I think we should celebrate it.” Should Barack Obama Day be a national holiday so everyone across American can celebrate?
