NEW: Doherty Rips Cicilline for Sponsoring Legislation to Bail Out Detroit
Monday, October 15, 2012
The Doherty campaign says the legislation sponsored by Cicilline would provide an estimated $10 billion for infrastructure, pay for public safety, and support education in the city of Detroit.
“After steering the City of Providence directly into a ‘Category 5 hurricane’ with his fiscal mismanagement and cover-ups, Congressman Cicilline’s support for a federal bailout of Detroit is a slap in the face to every hard working family in Rhode Island,” said Robert Coupe, the campaign’s political director. “One can only wonder what motivated a congressman from Rhode Island to support a federal bailout for the city of Detroit, while at the very same time Rhode Island’s capital city was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.”
