I guess this “judge” expect the city to create money out of thin air.
No. The hack judge expects U.S. taxpayers to bailout bankrupt cities.
Never mind the fact that decades and decades of liberal policies and
Union Thugs have reduced this once active city to a current cesspool
city. She wants U.S. taxpayers to foot the bill.
I suspect her ruling -- which she knows to be a loser on appeal -- was a sop to her constituency.
Union benefits must be paid. Detroit authorities will tax the last business out of town. They will then jack up property taxes until the last homeowner walks away, and then seize the home to sell to the highest bidder. But there will be no bidders, because no one in his right mind will come to Detroit. They will auction off all moveable city property, shut down all city services, layoff all city employees (except tax collectors and a goon squad to back them up), and devote the money to pension payments. When this does not raise enough money, the goon squad will throw a barbed wire fence around the city, capture all residents who have not already fled, and harvest body parts for sale to China.
This will not end until a higher court attaches Her Excellency The Judge's personal salary and perks, and throws them into the pot.
I wonder if I should add a sarcasm tag. This may be prophetic, not sarcastic.
“I guess this judge expect the city to create money out of thin air.”
No, the judge expects the city should not commit to spending money it doesn’t and won’t have. Having unlimited taxing authority means prolific spending obligations cannot be dodged via bankruptcy.
The people voted these politicians into power, knowing what kind of spending commitments they would enact. The politicians committed to insane spending - no surprise. Having gotten what they voted for, don’t renege on contracts and don’t put the rest of us on the hook for making up for the disparity.
She done good. The people of Detroit elected the politicians to shit in their bed, and now the people of Detroit can lie in it - don’t make us clean it up.
Let the nation know what Democrat promises result in. Don’t let them shirk their responsibility.
