You know that's not what I was saying. My whole point is that pension, benefit and debt service are increasing at such an out of control rate that the city can't pay it's way out without first staunching the bleeding. Your own links show debt service increasing by 20mil a year, and pension costs are rising even faster. The city has already compromised it's ability to pay for basic services, the system needs to reformed instead of the city simply axing everything else to pay for a fraction of unsustainable cost increases.
The argument about getting the city out of a costly renovation job is more compelling.
