Detroit bankruptcy takes national stage

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit’s impending bankruptcy got national focus Sunday as Governor Rick Snyder, Detroit Emergency Financial Manager Kevyn Orr and Mayor Dave Bing appeared on political talk shows.  Snyder appeared on CBS’s “Face The Nation” and NBC’s “Meet The Press”, Bing appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and Orr on “Fox News Sunday.”  During their appearances, Bing and Snyder said they don’t expect a federal bailout, while Orr was grilled about the city’s pension funds.  Detroit filed for bankruptcy last week and cites more than 18-billion dollars in debt and liabilities.
