    A city in the United States of America files for bankruptcy... I never thought I'd see the day! Our government is sending billions of dollars in aid all around the world and we have cities going bankrupt right here at home... fuckin' bullshit!

    You really don't see the correlation between the government policies & union demands; and the destruction of the City, State, and eventually the Country?

    Good. Maybe now they'll stop spending tax dollars on tattoo, casino and cruise benefits for welfare recipients...

    And they still owe millions on it. This is what happens when the taxpayers are on the hook for what should have been a private enterprise.

    What do you want to bet the divider in chief will want to bail them out with our tax money of course. Can't let all those good union democrats go by the wayside.

    ...so you think the police and fire unions cost Stockton a bankruptcy? how about the uneducated residents not paying for the housing they bought, moving out in the middle of the night to avoid payments as well as property taxes. don't blame the unions, even the article you posted cited the housing market so the city went to the unions to ask for concessions not because the unions were "bad" but the scumbag residents who bit off more than they could chew and left their neighbors holding the bag.
