The water disaster in Flint, Michigan proves you can’t “run government like a business.” And since you can’t run government like a business, the recent proposal to change control over Chicago Public Schools and authorize bankruptcy is a terrible idea.

 

That’s a perfectly fair summary of a Crain’s editorial this week.

 

It parrots the lines about Flint being used by Mike Madigan and his spokesman, Steve Brown. Flint’s water, they say, invalidates Rauner.

 

Only in Illinois.
