Budgetary Do-Over?

One plus one equals two. Unless...

"I’m worried the city could potentially go bankrupt at some point."---Tony George, as reported by The Citizens' Voice, 12/5/2015

From The Citizens' Voice:

George revises amended budget proposal

From The Times Leader:

Wilkes-Barre Mayor George amends proposed budget changes after public rebuke

So, are we in dire financial shape, or are we not? Does anyone in this administration actually know? Or are we simply winging it as we go? Is this a full-fledged tax increase? Or merely half a tax increase?

There seems to be a vast distance between the actual numbers and the purported numbers. Wiggle room. Wiggle room after the political hires. But with that, be mindful that distance, in this troubling case, creates indifference. Or, as some might say, irrelevancy.
