WMC Action News 5 Poll: Do you support city council's approval of the 2015 budget?

Memphis City Council approved the 2015 budget with massive cuts to employee and retiree health insurance.

Employees say they can't survive day-to-day with a 24 percent hike in health insurance premiums. Retirees say they can't live paying 100 percent of their premiums.

On the other hand, the city administration says the city's bank account will go bust, taxes will go up and city services will be cut, if they don't make adjustments to pay off pension debt and close the budget gap.
