This is scary as hell. We have already progressed through the urban high rise experiment of creating contained housing in neighborhoods around the cities. Most have failed like Cabrini Green and have been torn down sending the residents to housing around the suburbs. This new plan will accelerate the demise of every neighborhood in America.
Obama is now making offers to debt-ridden municipalities that they dare not take. It’s like the devil offering you a way out and then collecting on that debt. Or, if you prefer, it’s like the mafia giving you money to solve your problems and then you owe them. Forever. The leaders in these areas won’t ask the residents and voters, they’ll let the silver cross their palms and will be blinded by the shininess of the coin they pocket. Corruption will finish selling free America down the proverbial river. I’ll be blunt… these municipalities should not be taking money from the feds. They should solve their problems at the local level, stand on their own and not be beholding to a governmental behemoth.
