"House passed a bill that could alter .. the way state & local infrastructure is financed in the capital markets, when H.R.2209: congress.gov/bill/114th-con…
"..a bill to "require the appropriate Federal banking agencies to treat certain municipal obligations as level 2A liquid assets, and for other purposes" was adopted by the House with a voice vote. "
"Thought the bill has flown below the media radar, it is significant. Municipal obligations, including bonds, are at the heart of infrastructure investment in America. And infrastructure investment has been a large focus of this primary. "
"Both Democratic candidates have proposed multi-hundred billion dollar infrastructure investment proposals."
(there's more on @wikileaks about Flint In essence, while Flint people suffered from their water systems, Podesta's team thought it wise to blame the governor for failure.
Podesta's team was aware that after H.R.2209 passed, bids would follow for municipality privatization. Problem is: once the systems became privatized, citizens could not sue those entities which possibly went bankrupt down the road. Who cares! What an opportunity. Cha Ching!
