Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said in an interview Sunday that Detroit will have to deal with its creditors as it seeks to emerge from bankruptcy -- a suggestion that a federal bailout isn't in the offing.

"Detroit has serious challenges. We support Detroit in its efforts. But Detroit's going to have to work with its creditors," Lew said on CNN's "State of the Union."

Pressed directly on whether there would be a bailout, Lew didn't directly say no, but repeated that it would have to deal with its creditors and that the federal government would help through it's "normal federal programs."
