Detroit councilwoman to Obama: We voted for you, now bail us out

DETROIT (WJBK)-- The city of Detroit faces a major financial crisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help.

City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday the citizens support of Obama in last month's election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city.(Click the video player to listen)

"Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that," said Watson. "Of course, not just that, but why not?"

Nearly 75 percent of Wayne County voters pulled the lever for Obama in November.

"After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. He came home with some bacon," said Watson. "That's what you do."

Young served as Detroit's mayor for 20 years and served as vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1977 to 1981.

The White House has expressed no plans to bailout the cash-crunched city that some experts say could run out of money by the end of the year.

The federal government has bailed out cities in the past, however. In 1975, President Gerald Ford extended more than $2 billion in credit to New York City to help it avoid a financial collapse.

The more I read the news I cannot help but see the Family Guy episode with Christmastime is Killing Us is a song from "Road to the North Pole. I see the elves as the tax payers (those who actually pay) of America. We have fewer and fewer payers and more takers. I have always been an optimist and felt that I was in the majority of Americas. Starting to feel less and less of the majority, who believe having Santa Clause (The Government NOW) giving it to you is Fair and required.

I keep thinking about the people who build obscenely expensive houses on the beach and then expect the government or someone to bail them out when the ground beneath them starts heading out to sea.

How about some of these expenses FEMA is/has/will be covering?

Lots of people from all walks of life seem to have their hands out. I would guess there are a few among these who did not vote for President Obama.

You are 100% correct, and it will only get worse. We are now a socialist country thanks to uneducated voters,and voters looking for hands outs.

Yes, I am an independent voter. Actually, I am registered as NPA (No Party Affiliation). Most people think I am insanely liberal, but this past weekend I had a 90-minute conversation about entitlements with my nephew. At this point, I am sure he thinks I am an arch conservative. Neither description really fits me. Sometimes I just like a good debate.

NY and NJ are democrat liberal thug states and obama will reward them with whatever they ask for. If it was one of the conservative states he would not piss on their guts if they were on fire, that is the way this potus is.

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under
the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist
program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without
knowing how it happened."

Source: 1948 - from an interview during the presidential campaign,

[Ed. note: Norman Thomas and Gus Hall, the U.S. Communist Party
Candidate, both quit American politics, agreeing that the Republican
and Democratic parties had adopted every plank on the
Communist/Socialist and they no longer had an alternate party platform
on which to run.]

Huge public works opportunity here and way to teach men to fish instead of giving them fish.The place is half abandoned and crawling with entitlement vermin.Demolish the entire city,level it out nicely with earth moving machines.This will take 10-15 years.Once it is back to it's natural beauty,turn it back over to the Indians it was stolen from all those years ago .Those who refuse to participate in cleaning the mess they made will no longer be allowed on the government teat,and be deported to their country of family origin.

I would say Detroit like the rest of this country is dying by the voters. What would happen if the employees of a company could vote themselves more money each year? Most would not look at the long term health of the company or there long –term future it would be give me more NOW! We just describe at least 53% of the America voters (higher in Detroit) and that percentage will continue to grow.

Bottom line higher unemployment is to plan.
More people on Federal assistance is to plan.
More people on Federal disability is to plan.
More people relying on the Federal government for day to day needs is to plan.
The plan a majority voting class who are trained to vote for more Government!
The plan is working, for the politicians.
