This city can't run itself but it could manage to run the military out of town in record time.
Without Fort Bliss this city would be a dusty bend in I 10 and nothing more.

Stay out of the Army's business.

This city council is a bunch of clowns!! Without Fort Bliss this city would be Mexico in a matter of weeks!! Stay out of the Army's business and figure out how to save money other ways!! Well lets see if you start actually fining Mexico drivers for NO insurance, running red lights and speeding, wait they drive too slow so that wont work then MAYBE you would have a surplus for ONCE!!! OH and how about STOP paying for the illegals healthcare at UMC!! MORONS!

Follow the money. I wonder how the residents of Fort Bliss feel about a potential tax increase?

Heaven Forbid if governments had to actually make cuts to their budgets or even spend the same amount as the previous year. Ain't gonna happen.
