    Kevyn Orr: Detroit Is In Worse Shape Than I Thought

    Kevyn Orr: Detroit Is In Worse Shape Than I Thought « CBS Detroit

    In the report, Orr uses charts and graphs to paint the bleak picture of the city’s finances, including over $15 billion in long-term debt and an accumulated operating deficit of $325 million.
    “We’ve been collecting operating deficits at about $18 million to $20 million a year. That’s nobody’s fault, I think, frankly, the mayor and the council has done the best they can with what they have. The city has probably cut as much as it can cut to the bone now, and so its been trying to operate on the basis of borrowing short-term loans all the time,” he said.
    This is a perfect microcosm of what liberalism and its vote-whoring policies do.

    “The situation is severe,” Orr said. “It’s worse that we originally thought. It ain’t good.”

    “Frankly, from my perspective, if I can accomplish what I need to accomplish without bankruptcy, I’d be elated,” he said. “I can’t guarantee that [bankruptcy won't happen] in the least,

    Detroit has had nothing but Democrat management/Mayors since 1962.

    It took the USSR took 69-years to implode... Detroit has taken 51.

    BOOM! Goes the Dyn-O-miiiiiite!
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Yeah you have to hand it to liberal mecas like San Francisco - they at least know how to tax the people enough to run the riff raff out of town.

    "Wait, what? You mean the city has been run by Democrats for 50 years?"

    Duplicate thread.

    Detroit has had a Democrat Mayor since 1962.
    The USSR took 69-years to fail... Detroit showed their form of idiocy is even more efficient and have done it in 51!

    Leave it to the Demokrats to speed up the pace of failure. Detroit SSR.

    I really think they should just evacuate and leave it to the wolves.
