Yep, those guys are entirely brazen. Help was offered in the form of an emergency manager, but that meant eliminating the corruption and crony politics.

Detroit proceeded to mount a ballot initiative to stop the effective help, succeeds in torpedoing it, and since it will now go bankrupt, wants a handout to keep the corruption and chaos alive for a little while longer.

Please don’t blame the rest of the state for Detroit. We did, you know, elect a good governor. Simply dismantling the old unlimited cash welfare has fundamentally changed the state for the better.

The rest of the state could do themselves and the other “56” states a favor, and also vote to allocate Electoral College votes by each Congressional District instead of a statewide winner-take-all.

Michigan would become a battleground state for real, and if the trend continued rural portions of other states like Illinois, Pennsylvania and Ohio might go the same way.
