Detroit going bankrupt is exactly what Republicans want. They outsourced manufacturing jobs, attacked unions, cut public services, and this bankruptcy is the result. Now they can start privatizing city assets.
It is no surprise Republican Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is behind the bankruptcy filing. He even said bankruptcy would be great for Detroit. He says he wants to improve public services but he’s doing the exact opposite. Earlier this year, Snyder appointed emergency manager Kevin Orr (not elected by the people) to take over Detroit’s finances. He began selling off public assets and slashing public services. Detroit has just 1/3 of its ambulances in operation. The average emergency response time for police is 58 minutes. When you have horrible public services, no one wants to live there, which means tax revenues needed to fix the problems drop.
It’s a very vicious cycle and it’s the Republican way. Snyder’s emergency manager is to blame. Now Orr gets to manage the bankruptcy and one of his major targets is public pensions.
On Friday a judge in Lansing ruled that the bankruptcy filing was unconstitutional and must be withdrawn. He said it violates state law to lessen public pension benefits. The Michigan Attorney General has challenged this ruling, so there’s going to be a fight. It’s possible it will go all the way to the Michigan Supreme Court.

Obama and his uninformed, grossly ignorant supporters will watch city after city file Bankruptcy.
"His" people will starve, rob and kill each other while Obama continues to pitch his Tunnel Vision agenda.
How many could have been spared if he had remained with his gangster creeps in Chicago?
The Light will shine at the end of the Tunnel for Millions when he is finally out of Office!

Obama came to my home state of Colorado and gave a speech about "what's possible" after Colorado passed new gun laws. Not very strict ones, but Obama forgot to mention the failing Chicago gun laws, the failing new york gun laws, and the failing gun laws in the gun murder capital of the US... Washington, D.C.
Several colorado sheriffs slammed Obama for this, and bashed him, making statements like, "why isn't Obama talking about the failing gun laws in Chicago where criminals are out of control and citizens can't defend themselves? Because he's embarrassed! And he doesn't want to call attention to the failing gun laws he helped establish."
I couldn't agree more with the sheriffs, and I couldn't agree more that Obama doesn't want to mention his failing gun laws.
Obama is promoting stricter gun laws, but he's not mentioning the utter failures that they've caused, because he wants people to think he can do anything. I'm not surprised he isn't giving anymore speeches because people have started to figure out that he's full of crap.
