FULL DOCUMENTARY: Bankrupt How Cronyism and Corruption Brought Down Detroit
The Right Scoop ^ | 1/31/2014 | Caleb Howe

Posted on 01/31/2014 8:55:24 PM PST by absentee

Detroit was one of America’s great jewels. A center for industry, innovation, ingenuity, and the American can-do spirt. A shining example of the capitalist tide lifting all boats.

Today, Detroit rests in shadow. It is a husk, a decaying testament to what can go wrong when government and bad policy intersect with bad business. What happened? Bankrupt is the new documentary that will lead you through the brambles and reveal what went wrong. What’s more, it answers the question of what there is to learn from the story of the rise and fall of America’s auto empire, and what it says about where we are going as a nation in the era of too big to fail.

The full documentary is now available online and at no cost for a limited time. And here at RightScoop, we’re the first to bring it to you in full. So grab some popcorn, dim the lights, and take a look as the filmmakers pull aside the curtain and reveal Detroit, the felled giant.

Run Time of the film is about 42 minutes and all worth it. Obama claimed Detroit as a success story in his State of the Union. This video shows how ridiculous that claim really is.

Detroit reminds me of an insect that has been sucked completely dry by a spider and its empty shell then kicked out of the web.

Take the time to watch this documentary (40 minutes +/-). It really puts everything regarding Detroit, unions, and political corruption into perspective.

Another lie... “We saved Detroit”, is brutally exposed. Obama's structuring of the bailout helped no one other than the UAW. And we taxpayers paid the price for years of Democrat's collusion and corruption in Detroit. This documentary should be shown in prime time on national television... Atlas did not shrug and the Democrat politicians are laughing at us all the way to the first tee.

Obama claimed that Detroit is a success.
Depends on the meaning of success.
Guess for him it is.
