Yet, another large US city totters on the brink of bankruptcy, thanks to decades of Democrat misrule.
"But the state capital is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, and the turbulence rocking Hartford has served as a stark reminder of the gulf between the affluent enclaves that drive Connecticut's wealth and its larger cities that have long grappled with high crime, underperforming schools and unsure financial footing.
The problems in Hartford are similar to some other cities across the United States that have sought relief through bankruptcy: its tax base and population have shrunk and its pension obligations and debts have piled up. City officials, who are confronting a budget deficit approaching $50 million, have already made deep cuts in services, sought concessions from labor unions representing public employees and have taken steps, such as hiring lawyers, to position the city to be able to file for bankruptcy."
Hartford looked to the state for help, however, Connecticut is in hock, itself. A state known for more millionaires per capita than almost any other can't get its act together, either. The governor is nervous about raising taxes on the wealthy, again. The last couple of times, more left and took their money with them. 6
"At the same time, Hartford has looked to the state for help, only to find that financial situation is also in disarray. The state, which has a deficit of about $3.5 billion, started the fiscal year on July 1 without a budget after months of wrangling in the State Legislature and a resolution could be weeks away."

Perhaps, the Blue states should stop worrying about whether to tear down confederate statues. Better, they should raise statues to Hugo Chavez.
