I believe Hugh Carey was a minor player next to Mayor Abe Beame at that time. Beame took on the municipal unions and engineered fiscal sanity to save the city from default. He was an accountant and not a lawyer.

Welcome to the post-sequester apocalypse. As much as President Obama will have us believe otherwise, the greatest financial catastrophe in the coming days will not be of Washington’s making at all.  

If you’re looking to see what a policy of liberalism can do to a city, look no further then Rock City.  Despite one of the most aggressive ECD campaigns featuring celebrities Eminem, Jeff Daniels and Tim Allen, not even Hollywood can save Detroit from going broke. It is on the verge of being taken over by the State of Michigan in hopes of saving the city from bankruptcy.

President Obama...
