    Detroit wants to shift the health ins costs over to obamacare so all 50% of the people who pay taxes can bail them out.


    "Detroit could be looking to ObamaCare for a bailout as city leaders try to cut back on retiree health costs as they enter bankruptcy proceedings.

    The New York Times reported Monday that the city is proposing a plan aimed at reducing its $5.7 billion in outstanding retiree health costs.

    In short, they want to take those retirees too young to qualify for Medicare and send them into the ObamaCare insurance markets -- which are scheduled to launch next year.

    Doing so would ease the burden on the Detroit coffers by taking them off city coverage.

    As soon as the shock wears off and it is not so news worthy, in other words the public will have moved on. Obama will slip a bailout in.

    Low information block voters get bailout from their liberal giveaway. Anyone really that surprised? Someone explain to me how some of you who work for a living can still support this nonsense. Do you just hate your neighbor? Are you jealous when people do well? I just don't get it.
