Re: Detroit v Baltimore

I think that the guest correctly identifies the public debt and underfunded pension obligations in Maryland/Baltimore - but glossed over the severity and urgency of the problems. Maryland and Baltimore cannot grow their way out of this, Pensions NEED TO BE CUT SEVERELY.

Because the Republicans have ceded the urban vote, they have no say in the fix, no persuasive power, and nobody in office to fix this.

This is going to be a MAJOR ISSUE as Detroit moves through bankruptcy and sets the pace of urban renewal (just as GM because a lean automaker after bankruptcy, i expect Detroit to rebound after bankruptcy).

cutting public debt in THE urban issue, Republicans need to carpe diem not downplay it.
