Rand Paul offers plan to save Detroit: cut taxes, regulations, union rulesSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Wed, 12/04/2013 - 07:52
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul this week is traveling to Detroit, the nation’s economic disaster zone, to lay out a sweeping proposal to revive Motor City while also extending his recent outreach to blacks by opening a GOP African American engagement office.
Paul, a 2016 GOP presidential front-runner, will be in Detroit Friday to address the Detroit Economic Club where he will unveil a plan to create economic “freedom zones,” a unique agenda that features help to poor families and struggling businesses.
In what could be a cornerstone of Paul’s economic agenda for troubled cities and regions, he will detail his “Detroit economic plan” to revitalize the city’s economy with growth-encouraging tax and regulations changes.
His trip makes him the first to offer a blueprint to restore Detroit's lost luster and comes during a week in which a federal bankruptcy judge gave the city unprecedented powers to take virtually any move to pull out of an economic tailspin.
