We Ask America has conducted a poll in Michigan gauging Michigan voters’ approval of Gov. Rick Snyder and his decision to file bankruptcy. I was especially interested in a study in Michigan, and I hope to analyze others, because I am an avid believer in an average of polls approach.
Contrary to the endless columns blaming the “model cities” initiative for the Detroit bankruptcy, in reality, secular progressives manufactured the conditions that could only have led to this bankruptcy long before the idea was ever conceived. To be sure, the “model cities” initiative accelerated and exacerbated the failures of progressivism in Detroit, and is a real-life manifestation of the failures of theoretical progressivism, but something much more fundamental and sinister has been at play for over a hundred years.
Economist Arthur Brooks appeared on Fox Business to discuss the typical consequences of policies that have the stated goal of helping the low-income class of workers. As usual, as we have seen with Obamacare in recent weeks, the actual result is always negative, despite claims to the contrary.

The IRS scandal, which again played out on TV today, is an excellent opportunity to kick off “Truth Week” and expose progressivism in every dark corner for the despotic false promise it is. I, myself, would happily give up my vote for Senator in order to return to the original federalist design before the ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment, and you will too by the time you are done reading this article.
Heritage rightly points out that whenever Congress starts stacking a bill it simply means special interest – their friends – profit and get rich.
