Detroit not alone under mountain of long-term debt

From Baltimore to Los Angeles, and many points in between, municipalities are increasingly confronted with how to pay for these massive promises. The Pew Center for the States, in Washington, estimated states’ public pension plans across the U.S. were underfunded by a whopping $1.4 trillion in 2010.

For years, watchdog groups and public-sector analysts have warned of the threat posed by unfunded liabilities.

Wheton, I guess we better start taxing the wealthy more! They've been getting a free ride for 30 or 40 years--or more! "The wealthiest Americans are paying some of the lowest tax rates since World War II." q.v., Is Our Tax System Fair? Survey Says: No.

But, this article just makes me laugh! I just have to mention it, since it such a great source of pride! Nebraska has more municipal going bankrupt than anywhere else in the nation! This just wants me to bust my buttons! Really though this isn't towns as such but or such, but are sanitary sewage district bonds? I have some also great bridges in NYC, I can sell you also.
