You can add the City of Los Angeles to the list of endangered cities. Most "experts" give it about two years. But, this mostly boils down to affordable health care for workers, when the workers retire, and to which family members of the worker will health care be extended during time of employment, and after leaving the employment. If the federal government does not move to control the cost of health care across the nation, national health care will fail. More cities will fail. If national health care and more cities fail it will be ugly. Instead of legislative bodies at the local and state level duking it out with labor groups the real problem is affordable health care for all, how much, what it costs, and who pays for it. Ask your congressman and US Senators for these answers.

Yoo Hoo. This is all part of a plan to dump all government for the people and have every thing privatised and make it government for those who got and who of course want those who aint got from ever getting even near enough to smell. This is all accompanied by the false blaming of unions, the poor, the disabled, the old, anyone who thinks and speaks and any collective sense being expressed by us dumb worker bees to try to get any kind of parity of income to outgo compared to the facts of the bosses having their incromes increase exponentially whilst ours have sat still in the crapper as the dollar buys less and we get less and of less value to spend on what we are forced to buy that used to be our rights. the popular whine of blaming unions, schools, workers, folks trying to enjoy some protection from predatory industrial bosses, predatory bankers and cancer like religious nuts who pretend to want to run everything and then, after they have bought their way to the boss spots in D C, do nothing but spout hate and bull poop laden lies about the latest made up fear issue and why we should be happy to go to $2.12 an hour and be grateful for it. Pray? No Way!
