The Obama administration on Friday stepped forward and announced millions in grant dollars to give to financially failing Detroit — but even that taxpayer dole-out may not prove acceptable to some of the city's workers, who instead wanted a full-scale bailout.
"Something is better than nothing," said Bridgette Shephard, 47, a social worker in Detroit, Fox News reported.
