Paul Touts Free Markets In Detroit
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul says lower taxes could help revive Detroit, a city trying to emerge from bankruptcy.
The Kentucky Republican is speaking today to members of the Detroit Economic Club at MotorCity Casino.
Paul gave a preview to reporters yesterday, calling for "economic freedom zones" in cities with high unemployment like Detroit.
He wants a flat tax of 5% in certain neighborhoods. Paul is a tea party champion and potential Republican presidential candidate whose philosophy includes reducing federal spending and lowering taxes.
Earlier today, Paul is participating in a news conference to announce a new Detroit office for the Michigan Republican Party.
