Rahm is going to do whatever the teachers union wants him to do! This whole thing is just a song and dance, performed for the sheeple so the teachers and their union leaders can get massive raises to go along with their Cadillac benefits packages. Just think what those raises mean in the long run - pension checks will also be much healthier in years to come!
There is one reason Rahm left Washington to run for Mayor of Chicago. He is now in a position to pull all kinds of "creative bookkeeping", funneling federal funds into city and union coffers!
