From someone who has a lot of room to talk because I have lived outside of the mighty metro of Philadelphia (and this is not meant to be sarcasm btw, the metro is a VERY important piece of the state as we all know), the state no longer has any interest in bailing the city out of its messes...and rightfully so. Besides the obvious arguments, the state has MANY messes on its hands right now.
State funding is one thing, but being expected to pick up the pieces time and time again for completely incompetent and inept city leadership for DECADES is another.
And it's funny how the same folks from Philly who will stand there with their hands out will turn right around and say, "Screw them, let them fail! Why should we give them any money?!?" when it comes to Harrisburg City's current woes, Pittsburgh's, failing towns in its own metro...
