On the Show:

-A Tale of Two "Deals" have been negotiated for City of Detroit General Fund Retirees and Police & Fire. Yet, what are the tea-leaves of these "deals". Did Appointed Detroit Emergency Manager Kevin Orr and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder embellish the truth on how underfunded the pension funds where to evoke fear for retirees? We'll discuss.

-What about Health Care, Dental Vision benefits and the lost or reduction of Cost of Living Adjustments known as COLA for retirees? Are the totality of reductions to earned benefits to retirees much worse than what Detroit's media has reported?

-Now after the retirees have been forced feed this "deal" or else, what about the Regional Water Authority part of Gov. Snyder and E.M. Orr's plan. Will Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson continue to buck any attempts for Detroit's Water and Sewer Department dumping necessary system upgrade costs on the suburbs or give in?
