One of many to come. They ran out of other people's money. I just hope the civil servants who don't get their pensions take it well. They can thank all the lying politicians for making promises noone ever intended to keep.

Politicians and union arbitrators have ruined our country. That system has to go. Politicians, mainly democrats, have given the farm away to the unions for a few stinking lousy votes. They should all be ashamed of themselves. Thank Obama for making it obvious who the culprits are. He exemplifies the problem with the stupid lousy drunk worthless unions.

Perhaps, some of the blame might go to overcrowded schools? ESL, education needs, free breakfast and lunch programs?

The no student left behind mandate? Multiculturalism, free cell phones for the low income group.

Yes. Welfare and open borders has encouraged the subhumans to spawn at an alarming rate. It would be OK if the schools were overcrowded with well behaved kids, like my parents 60 person classes in NYC catholoic schools.

How about also thanking legalized abortion for the financial mess this country is in!? I do agree that unions aren't perfect but they are part of what makes America great!!

Without, legalized abortion there would be a lot more poor people breeding poor people who seek government aid, like the government employee unions, who get artificially high pay and benefits via the government. Net result is that the poor and the government worker unions are sucking the blood out of america via legal obligations placed on the tax payer. An if this sickness is not stopped, America will not be and never be great any more.

We have abortion now, and the poor are breeding at an alarming rate. That's not the problem. Welfare encourages single mothers to spawn as many sub humans as possible, and does nothing to promote the children's future. Entire cities and towns are infested with crime and garbage as a result. If they want welfare, give drug tests. After the third kid, they get their tubes tied.

C.F. should disband the fire and police dept. and start with new personal. Why do we need so many policemen with rank for this small of a city No need of a mayor get a town administrator or similar and let him/her pick their team. The previous mayor mentioned on television that he had inherited this issue, but he also failed to stop it and contributed more to it. Has the Wyatt detention paid their taxes yet? Why not hire the citizens of CF for jobs at the detention center. Also the po;lice and firemen should live in the city a minimum of 3 years after getting into the dept. That way they will feel they are part of this.
