If they had applied their corruption skills honed over the years to making Detroit successful, instead of the bankrupt failure it is today, we wouldn't be discussing this. They apparently understand enough of governance to get personally wealthy, so you have to accept the fact that they are not inept--just greedy and self-serving! And now that they realize that someone may actually straighten out the mess they have made, they have the gall to complain that their gravy train is ending? Don't the voters in Detroit understand why their city is in trouble? Unbeliveable!
