Sorry to disappoint you all, but I have never been affiliated with any political party. I vote for the person and not the party. Of course it is a sad state when you feel like you are voting for the lesser of two evils.

I'm definitely not a teabagger. Obviously you don't know what the reference means. You should educate yourself before making a further fool of yourself.

It is REPUBLICANS who are responsible for running up the largest national debt in the history of the US of 10 TRILLION Dollars because of their IRRESPONSIBLE, RECKLESS spending and inept Governing. It is REPUBLICAN Business owners who have taken millions of jobs overseas. thereby putting MILLIONS of Americans out of work. Republicans say they are for LESS government, yet THEY are responsible for Americans losing many of their rights such as legislation which has made search & seizure and wire taps legal without court orders. Now, thanks to Republicans, anyone can be declared a enemy combatant and put in prison for years without a trial. Republicans say they are for LESS government, yet THEY have passed hundreds of laws to restricts women’s rights. When it comes right down to it, REPUBLICANS don’t give a DAM about the American people or this country. They just want to WIN at all and any costs. They have proven this to be true by their own actions… such as; * Having votes thrown out in Black Neighborhoods in Florida, plus using legal tactics to keeps the votes from being re-counted in Florida in the 2000 Election.* Challenging Voters in Ohio in the 2004 Election..* Do Anything, Say Anything to WIN Politics…* Negative Attack Ads Designed to Destroy Their Opponent…* Spreading Blatant LIES and Character Assassinations..

And yet Obama has taken away more of our rights through Executive Orders than any President in history. See, both sides are guilty.

middle-class Americans are “fewer, poorer,[and] gloomier” after enduring a “lost decade” of stagnant incomes, shrinking wealth and greater financial stress and uncertainty.

And though some top-line economic indicators — unemployment, housing prices, the stock market — have improved since that time, Americans in general aren’t feeling much better about the economy.

For starters, fewer Americans described themselves as “middle class” in 2012 than four years earlier: 49%, compared with 53% in 2008. And the share describing themselves as “lower” or “lower-middle” class rose over that time, from 25% to 32%.

Within self-described members of the middle class, the overwhelming sense that maintaining a middle-class lifestyle is harder today than a decade ago cuts across age, gender, partisan, educational and racial/ethnic divides.(Though whites and people ages 50 to 64 were even more pessimistic than other subgroups, last year’s Pew Research report found.)

However, the middle-class respondents were somewhat more sanguine about their personal situations. About equal percentages said they were more financially secure now than 10 year earlier (44%) as said they were less secure (42%); blacks and younger adults were most likely to say they had made progress over the past decade.

Similarly, middle-class blacks, Hispanics and under-50 adults were most likely to say they were better off financially than before the recession. But only 28% of whites said they were better off, versus 45% who said they were worse off. Among people 65 and older, just 13% said they were better off, compared with 46% who said they were worse off.

The middle-class survey showed an interesting partisan divide in self-assessment, with Republicans and independents saying they were recovering more slowly than Democrats. About half (51%) of all middle-class Republicans and 46% of independents said they had yet to fully make up their recession-era losses, compared with only about a third (35%) of Democrats.

And who’s responsible for the difficulties of the middle class? While Congress gets the most votes, with 62% assigning it “a lot” of the blame, the Pew Research report found plenty of blame to go around. The one exception: Middle-class people themselves, with just 8% assigning their own socioeconomic group “a lot” of blame, and 47% saying they weren’t to blame at all.

Meredith Whitney is re-upping her call for a wave of municipal bankruptcies, in the wake of Detroit's Chapter 9 filing.

Flashback: in 2010, Whitney told 60 Minutes that there could be between "50 to 100" cities defaulting on their debt, totaling "$100s of billions of dollars."

While there have definitely been a few since then, we never really reached that number.

But today, in an op-ed for the FT, she doubles down:

There are five more towns like Detroit in Michigan alone. There are many more municipalities across the country in similar positions.

Basically, the profligacy of past city administrations past has finally caught up:

...these days, things are very different in the world of municipal finance.

At the root of the problem is the incentive system that elected officials used to face. For decades, across the US, local leaders ran up tabs for future taxpayers; they promised pensions and other benefits for public employees that have strong legal protection. That has been a great source of patronage for elected officials: they can promise all sorts of future perks to loyal supporters (state and local workers) with very little accountability on the delivery of those promises.

Today, we are left with the legacies of this waste. The bill for promises past is now so large for some cities and towns that it is crowding out money for the most basic of services – in the case of Detroit, it could not even afford to run its traffic lights. Across many American cities, cuts to basic social services have already been so deep that they have made the communities unpleasant places.

She says officials are finally "siding with residents," but that this will come at the expense of pensions and bond holders.

"The aftershocks of the largest municipal bankruptcy in US history will be staggering," she says.

And good for her. You're talking about Michigan, NOT ARNOLD! Quit with the scare tactics. But then that is the only thing you have left to use to try to get elected, isn't it? Scaring the voters to get their vote.

Maybe you should read a book or two before making bs comments with no facts. Your just making a fool out of yourself, and yes Arnold could be the next Detroit .

Actually, they are totally different. Maybe it is you that needs to do some reading and quit making bs comments with no facts. Where is your proof that Arnold is following the same practices as Detroit? Yep, you have none because Arnold does not follow those practices.

Now quit with your scare tactics. You're the only one appearing the fool.
