Sen. Paul Proposes Billion Dollar Free Market Stimulus Plan for Detroit
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sen. Rand Paul today presented a plan to the Detroit Economic Club that provides depressed or bankrupt areas with new economic opportunities. The Economic Freedom Zone Act of 2013 removes the shackles of Big Government by reducing taxes, government regulations and burdensome union work requirements. These zones will apply to any zip code with unemployment greater than one and a half times the national average. Economic Freedom Zones will dramatically reduce taxes and red tape so that families and businesses in Detroit and cities like it can grow and thrive. The answer to poverty and unemployment is not another government bailout; it is simply leaving more money in the hands of those who earned it. The Economic Freedom Zones Act of 2013 will do just that.
