Detroit's emergency manager Kevyn Orr took Detroit into Chapter 9 bankruptcy last week with the blessing of Gov. Rick Snyder. Orr says he's hearing a lot of "vitriol" but not many counter proposals on how to get the city out of debt. Orr said of creditors, unions and other critics, "Instead of engaging in a war of words, even if you have to do that for public consumption, come to me confidentially with a counter-proposal. I haven't heard that," In his third economy speech in two days, President Barack Obama said the House Republican budget is a "bad bargain" for the middle class. Obama says the House GOP wants to cut spending on education, science and clean energy when the country should be investing in those sectors and cutting back in those areas would be like waving a "white flag of surrender" in a global economy. Paula Deen is calling BS on a former chef who claims Deen made an African-American employee dress up like Aunt Jemima ... claiming the chef is crying racism in a pathetic money grab. The woman behind the allegations is Dora Charles, who ran Deen's kitchens for 22 years and helped open Paula's famous Lady & Sons restaurant in Georgia. less
