Life in "Progress" City - Camden NJ edition

From the city of Camden where you couldn't find evidence of a republican in the city if you commissioned the world's largest archeological dig..............
Yet another crisis is upon this burdened city, among the most impoverished and crime-ridden in the country.

Deep layoffs of city workers go into effect on Tuesday - cutting up to 383 jobs, or one-fourth of the city's employees.

The exact number depends on whether public workers' unions make last-minute concessions. In any case, the cuts are likely to be deep - and could be a blow to the quality of life in a city where more than half the 80,000 residents, mostly black and Hispanic, live in poverty.

I have a question. How could the "quality of life" be any worse than half a city in poverty?

The saddest part of all of this is that do you think you could get the residents of this city to support a conservative despite the dire living conditions?

I'm sure that the state of Camden is some sort of racist plot perpetrated by racist tea partiers.
