Rand Paul to Deliver Plan to Fix Detroit's Woes

"Start over" maybe?


U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, who previously said Detroit would receive a taxpayer bailout "over my dead body," will travel to the Motor City next month to offer his fix for the struggling city.

Paul, the Kentucky Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate, will deliver his plan at the Detroit Economic Club on Dec. 6.

Paul last traveled to Michigan in September for the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference, where he said he regretted his previous comments about Detroit made after the city's July 18 municipal bankruptcy filing. At the GOP confab, Paul won the presidential straw poll and urged the Republican Party to be more inclusive.
