White House to announce $300M in aid to Detroit
[FREEP] Nearly $300 million in aid for bankrupt, increasingly impoverished, reliably Democrat, Detroit
... ruled by Democrats since 1962. A city whose Golden Age included the Purple Gang...
-- from federal and state coffers, private businesses and charitable foundations -- will be announced Friday as B.O. regime officials visit the city to discuss what can be done to help eradicate blight, improve transportation, encourage new business and make residents safer.
All y'gotta do is wait long enough. They'll always kick in.
The funding will include $150 million in blight eradication and community redevelopment, including $65 million in Community Development Block Grant funding -- which had already been awarded over two years but could not be accessed by the city. An additional $25 million could help hire as many as 150 firefighters in the city.
Some $24 million in federal resources that had been tied up will go to repairing buses and installing security cameras, part of an overall $140-million investment in transit systems. And several charitable groups -- the Ford Foundation, Kresge Foundation and Knight Foundation -- will put millions into spurring entrepreneurship and creating jobs.
Gene Sperling, the head of President Barack Obama
My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it...
's National Economic Council and an Ann Arbor native, briefed news hounds on some the plans Thursday evening, saying Friday's meeting at Wayne State University is "the first of many efforts that the administration will engage in with the city of Detroit."
None of which will work, since the same kleptocrats, moochers and grifters are still in charge just as they have been the last umpteenth years...
Many details were still to come out Friday.
"We've found significant resources that we believe can be unlocked and expedited and leveraged to have significant impact on the economy of Detroit," Sperling said.
Gov. Rick Snyder, Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and emergency manager Kevyn Orr -- who on Detroit's behalf filed the largest municipal bankruptcy in history in July -- will be part of the talks with Sperling, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and Attorney General Eric
Inaction Jackson Holder
