    “the Detroit Water and Sewage Department is notifying thousands of residents that they’ll be cut off unless they pay their bills. Just under half of all customers are delinquent, and together they owe more than $100 million.”

    Pay their bills! What a radical thought. Must be racism behind it, right?

  • Andrew Allison

    “At least in this case, the mountain of unpaid bills isn’t the city’s fault.” Surely you jest? Does not ignoring non-payment in exchange for continued support of a corrupt administration constitute culpability?

    First it’s the bills that pile up.

    This is what decades of corruption, mismanagement, and reckless decisions unchallenged Democratic governance looks like.

    Maybe it will be bought by a subsidiary of OCP.
