I appreciate a coherent thought out response and I thank you. You disagree with me but thats ok.
One question I have is you said the unions that priced Detroit out of business are run by OWD. What unions are those?
So the taxpayer is going to bail out a city mismanaged for decades of leftist policies?
This sets a bad precedent where Obama can now bail out any city he desires for just about any reason.
How is this possible? What happened to the idea of federal independence in the US?
I thought the US federal structure was competitive federalism, which doesn't allow financial equalization within your states - like we have here with our cooperative federalism, or on a bigger scale within the €Z, aka fiscal centralism.
Well, there goes one more thing I used to admire about the United States...

Nice racist attitude by a couple of the members in this thread. If blacks get into charge everything will fail. Maybe it's time to remind them of their place in this country and get to the back of the bus.
Exactly what I am talking about.
So you would deny that most cities on the verge of bankruptcy are majority black cities?
It is not racist if it is a fact. I am trying not to be racist,
never mind white guys cant say anything without being racist.
deny ignorance but get the special on sand at wal mart to stick your head in
The federal $100 million is being described as “blight remediation,” but it allows the city’s new managers to reshuffle more cash into the city employees’ pension funds, which were looted by city and union officials for several decades.
If Detroit is unable to handle it, then the state of Michigan needs to step in and do it. If the state is unable then the feds need to come in.
The checks and balances failed, and the government acted maliciously towards the people at every level.
