Detroit: A burned-out monument to broken political promises

As I tour the burned out, abandoned homes in Detroit, I have to ask:

Seeing this kind of devastation, why do we listen to politicians about anything?

They make promise after promise about helping the homeless, and veterans, and ordinary working people.

And yet block by block, these homes remain empty, a silent monument to broken promises.
