    OK water privatization, yeah OK, Michigan is kind of a corporate state, yeah all right, but the president of the United States does have the power during hard economic times to give mandatory assistance to any US area or territory, of citizenry enduring inhuman conditions!
    If he can send advisors, to Syria and Iraq, why cant he simply demand via Executive priveledge that emergency water resources and Water Bill amnesty be provided for those in Detroit without water!

    This is something that i could not ever explain, How, America can all ways come up with money for illegal immigrants, house them, find jobs, feed, but can not help it's own people that are homeless, and jobless, the very people that fought for this country as myself, and those that voted. ( Lot of BLACK people)

    Don't tell that to some on this site, they feel the citizens of Detroit deserve it.

    Agreed. I am against any and all foreign aid. Especially when funds could be used to help the American people and it's infrastructure.
    The problem with bankrupt cities are the rules set in place to grant them direct funding... along with politics keeping these cases at arms length because once they help one city, others are to follow. If not mistaken, the only other city bailout was NYC in the 70s.

    Also, those caught in a disaster of natural causes are governed by a set of different rules then those of fiscal irresponsibility. The people are simply at the wrong place at the wrong time governed by the wrong politicians with horrible special corporate interests.

    Once politicians allowed our companies to outsource internationally, taxed foreign exports less and made them more attractive, along with a slew of other conditions, this is what you get

    Its not that he can't, he won't. Once he does that, every city afterwards which are facing a meltdown will be in line... that is why the last time it was done was in the 70s, and that was after enough committees and safeguards were put in place in order for them to receive the bailout in NYC.

    I don't agree with it. something more direct should have happened years ago... but this is the game politicians play.
