I'm happy to read the federal government is going to spend money to help revitalize Gary. I just wish they gave the money to the mayor of Gary rather than sending in experts and consultants to study the situation and make recommendations.

I think the mayor knows what needs to be done, and I applaud her efforts. My guess is the "help" will be the primary beneficiaries of the federal money. The Obama administration is more concerned with putting more people on the federal payroll and buying their votes than fixing problems.

Likewise with Obamacare. For what Obamcare costs, we could give all those without insurance $2 million each and be more sure of the result.
