It'll only be dumb until he himself is forced to do so. Then the press will be fawning all over him. They did the same when he expressed an interest in the malaria cure being used to treat Covid just days after they criticised Trump for the same.

Cuomo pointed out that not only does New York chip in more money than Kentucky, it also takes less from the federal coffers than it contributes – unlike Kentucky. He asked, “Senator McConnell, who’s getting bailed out here?”

I don't see how it's dumb. Why is it the tax payers obligation to save over extended pensions in irresponsible states? We already spent so much on the bailout, we need to calm down all of the spending, not massively increase it so people can keep their 100k a year pensions. By declaring bankruptcy they'll be able to save an already failing system of exuberant pensions.

But Trump has went bankrupt at least six times, one of them being a casino! How the hell do you bankrupt a casino?! Trump running the country like a corporation gives him the option to bankrupt the United States. You can't run the country like a corporation and bankrupting the United States is not an option, you human scum! I mean, trump! I can hear it now... "Show some respect" and "Could you do any better?" So, here's your answer. Trump hasn't earned my respect! And I'M NOT THE ONE IN CHARGE! But I've got a suggestion for him. Trump should commit suicide on prime time television. That would MAGA and increase his ratings!

Mitch wants the free market to handle it. Mitch definitely has no interest in a liberal stronghold having budget issues.

I criticize it. Even my father, a die-hard Trump supporter who gets all his news from Fox, thinks the bankruptcy thing is stupid. Other Republicans have criticized it as well.

I'm quite sure it is either illegal or unconstitutional for States to enter into bankruptcy.
