Governor Snyder talks Detroit Bankruptcy on Face the Nation [Video]
“The citizens of Detroit aren’t getting the services they deserve, and they haven’t for a very long time. Enough is enough. Now is the time to turn it around.” Watch Governor Snyder on Face the Nation.
Seven governors came and went during the decades-long decay of Michigan’s largest city that culminated with a humiliating collapse into financial ruin.
“I don’t spend time dwelling on my legacy. I just try to do my job well,” the Republican governor told the media in an interview. “That’s relentless positive action. No blame, no credit. Just simply solve the problem.
“Here was a problem 60 years in the making. The can was being kicked down the road for far too long. It was time to say enough was enough. Let’s stop, let’s stabilize, let’s grow.”
