AP blames "steep population and tax base falls", without mentioning the runaway Democrat spending, and incredible Democrat corruption. Simply amazing....

Our problems with Detroit are simple. Just cede the entire city to Canada.

But then our problems we will then have with Canada....

Not so simple.

I read Orr’s report, and it does a good job of listing the city’s problems. However, in a bankruptcy filing, everything, and mean everything...all the shady deals, the corrupt contracts..will come out in the open..

Heard on Fox news radio, no mention of Democrat but they mention corruption.

This is our future if the Repubs continue to cave and become liberal light.

because all white teenage waitresses share the guilt of the white race and by extension, guilt for Trayvon's death.

well done to years of Democrat corruption and misappropriation along with union chokeholding and all helped by a useless idiot in the WH.

Congratulations Obama on another record....biggest collapse in history of a US city.

The 67 Riots were the start of the big out exodus but political corruption drove business out which is what really drove people away. However hitting bottom is proving to be good for those looking to invest in rebuilding.

Detroit won’t be the last big city to suffer the same fate, not by a long shot.
