Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is telling his listeners he has his own urban renewal plan for Flint: "Let's just bulldoze it." Limbaugh, discussing the potential for shrinking Flint to better concentrate city services, said Tuesday he would rather wipe out parts of the city than force taxpayers to continue maintaining it. "All right, folks, I have thought about it, I've given this considerable thought. I've given this more thought in the last ten minutes than most people think about anything in their life. And I am ready to change my mind on bulldozing Flint. I say go for it. "Let's just bulldoze it," Limbaugh said in a transcript on his Web site.

Limbaugh also said cities like Flint were "down the tubes long ago." "We tried propping them up with urban renewal and it didn't work. We were hoodwinked into being called names if we just let these cities go," he said. "So we kept pumping money in there, we kept pumping welfare, food stamps, all these things 'cause we loved 'em and we cared for them, but the proof that a government can't revive anything is Flint, Michigan."
