As the Motor City filed for Chapter Nine bankruptcy to get out from under $18 billion in liabilities, Gov. Rick Snyder, R, put himself out front and center to answer questions and discuss the measure with the press on a number of national and local news shows.
It wasnt a bad idea, either. A new Conservative Intel poll of 672 likely Michigan voters shows that they overwhelmingly agree with his decision to put his states largest city through bankruptcy even when reminded of the possible harm the move could inflict on pensioners and municipal bondholders...

They actually have a Republican Governor?
He claims to be Republican.
The fact is Republicans control 100% of Mi state government.
Okay, I was a little shocked. I guess I wasn’t familiar with the legislative make-up. It would seem like it would be a total Dem state, especially with Detroit.
Interesting. Thanks for posting.
If anything, the Detroit Debacle provides a sober example of the consequences of liberalism that should make people in the state even more inclined to vote conservative.
When did this happen? </s>

It seems we mostly hear about the notorious cities of Detroit, Dearborn and Flint giving the impression that it is a Dem state. That was my assumption too.
I wish you were describing Ill-Annoy, America’s North Korea.
Michigan in reality is a very conservative state.
Shall issue CCW. Open carry for everyone no permit required.
Banned queer marriage and queer partnerships. Banned affirmative action. Voter ID must be shown to vote.
Our ‘stand your ground’ law mirrors that of Florida. We are now a RTW state
As a professional community organizer, he’ll be able to help organize the Soup kitchens.
There used to be a famous lady who organized soup kitchens in Detroit, her name was “Mother Waddles” and she was not a very thin lady either...
These pensioners everyone is so worried about are the same one’s who drove the city into bankruptcy.....you reap what you sow. Every thinking human being knew when they were striking and get these sweetheart deals that the day of reckoning was coming for the pyramid scheme.....that day has arrived and they’re the ones left holding the bag....tough Sh!#!!!! Should have elected honest conservative people!!!
