Mike McGinn might want to rethink his political affiliation, as the Obama Administration is severely complicating his life;

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn said the changes sought by the Department of Justice to the Seattle police force would cost the city $41 million a year, a number he called “frankly, shocking.”
Speaking on KUOW [radio] this morning, the mayor said the potential number of new officers and the amount of training the DOJ is seeking under a proposed consent decree would mean deep cuts to other city programs including mental health and substance abuse treatment, which he said would compromise public safety. The city is facing a $30 million budget shortfall for 2013.
Sounds like McGinn may have awoken and smelled the Starbucks; there's such a thing as opportunity costs even for a socialist.
