What a train wreck. This is the end result of one party, liberal rule for decades.

With the financial status of the city I could see cuts except for people who are already retired. But it looks like it is going to happen.

The thing is if the Supreme Court backs pension cuts for existing retirees watch the bankruptcy courts go into overtime.

If the demonRATS can do exactly that to Military retired and disabled people then it only seems fair to do the same thing to other societal classes as well. Why should government UNION retirees and disabled be imune from the cuts forced on NON-UNION government retirees and disabled? What makes those UNION people better than the military people? Pay and benefit cuts are slated for me why not thee? Are we not all supposedly in this boat together? If I must sacrifice why can't you? ( I use the editorial you, not the personal you )

Don T........

There will be a lot of people affected that are union and non-union. This problem exists in smaller communities also, who are non-union.... The big cities get the news attention......

In fact the thing you should cry about is the bigger Cities who can't control anything including criminals who use guns and we get to suffer for it.

In scale, the entire USA is in far worse debt than Detroit by many miles.

Over 200 trillion in debt, printing money like crazy.

Many top economist are deeply worried.

Likes, I know that people of all stripes and kinds will be hurt. Those screaming loudest and filing lawsuits are the unions themself though. In specific the AFSCME, Federation of State, City, County, and Municipal Employees has filed an appeal in Federal court. All that happens is that the city goes deeper in debt and the eventual hurt gets a whole lot worse while waiting for the appeal to be heard.

The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

Liberalism+Socialism+Unions+Stupidity=Failure

Life is hard. Trophys are not guaranteed. Very few people are worth anything near what they think they are worth. It's no wonder we are the laughing stock of the world.
