|Abandoned Corktown home, Detroit|
Well, shortly after Detroit's last Republican mayor left office in 1962, liberal Democrat Jerome Cavanagh signed into law a commuter tax and a municipal income tax. Detroit's first black mayor, Coleman Young, not only was a race-baiter he was a onetime member of the Communist Party. His economic record made Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev look like a Yankee capitalist.
As for Clinton's old boss, Barack Obama, federal debt has doubled since he took office.
From my post at Da Tech Guy:
I walked its streets--the tragedy of Detroit.
