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. and 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.

Fauch off and do not infest every Thread with your ignorant, off point comments.

Go seek the attentions of your Room mates at the asylum and stop bothering the grown ups.

These Victims in Detroit have EVERY reason to expect mo Gifts fromb de Mony' Trei'.

Why are they any different that all the other Barry Backers that expect and receive gifts from their Messiah?

Slew gets her Free Place at the Insane Asylum. Red Reemer gets his subsidized Section 8 housing, Snake gets his "Set Asides Contracts" for Janitorial Services because he be Black.

Just because 47%+ of the Tribalists in Detroit are Functionally Illiterate is not a reason that they should not git free shaat too!

WE LET THESE DREGS HAVE A VOTE!

But the alleged actions of an employee at a subway (owned by a Republican) is proof that the GOP is racist?
