Well I do have to agree Obama owes them. If it wasn't for the useless scum in Detroit he wouldn't have carried Michigan.

michigan (detroit) voted down the emergency manager act because putting an emergency manager in place would take away the democratic rights of the citizens.

apparently those democratic rights include the ability to ask for another handout from obama's stash.

If this lack of a bail out makes the corrupt Detroit politicians go broke and or leave I am all for it.
It's not like the broke people of the city are going to suffer anymore than they already are.
I hope it gets much worse so that the city will hopefully get honest people to run it.

Too many crooked politicians, cops, and general management!!!!

Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime.

Give a (Detroit) man a fish and he will get indignant, self entitled, destroy his neighborhood, then give you a confused look why his life has so many problems.

There's a reason they're called the "Detroit City Clowncil".

Look at the over the DNR trying to fix up Belle Isle. Cliff's Notes: "we'll allow the DNR to take temporary possession and spend million$ to fix the park up, but we reserve the right to snatch it right back at the time of our choosing, while allowing the DNR and people of the state to keep the bills".

Clowncil, indeed.

The city is too corrupt to bailout. I do wish the best for detroit, but i don't htink giving them money to continue business as usual is going to help.

detroit has had at least 20+ years to bail it's own ass out of trouble and has failed to do so.

i grew up in detroit and wish the hell they could figure it out but i do not believe they can.

thank you mayor c.young for creating a culture of corruption and isolation that neither dennis archer nor dave bing can overcome.

sorry to say it but perhaps the best thing is for detroit to fail and start from scratch.

sob sob

i am soooooooo disappointed but reality must prevail

When Detroit fails, it will be permanent.

Detroit is the logical and unavoidable outcome of 50 years of "feel good" social programs. All politicians should be required to spend a month in Detroit to better understand the consequences of poor decisions.

Welfare destroyed the family by financially rewarding indiscriminant breeding and illegitimacy, leading to a society of children born to children equipped with nothing but a strong sense of entitlement. Combining this with all manner of programs meant to bring about "equality" simply reduced standards to the lowest possible level, so the infrastructure of society began to collapse as crime became rampant and education became rare. Employers fled the strongly entitled and uneducated workforce in droves, leaving the region without tax revenues to support it.

Again, it's not rocket science - it's common sense. Detroit is exactly what we made it.
