From Flint, Michigan to Everywhere, USA, it's the INFRASTRUCTURE stupid.

It's just that damn simple!

Bernie Sanders plan for rebuilding this country's failing infrastructure at the link.

https://berniesanders.com/issues/creating-jobs-rebuilding-america/

Our nation’s infrastructure is collapsing, and the American people know it.  Every day, they drive on roads with unforgiving potholes and over bridges that are in disrepair.  They wait in traffic jams and ride in railroads and subways that are overcrowded.  They see airports bursting at the seams.

For too many years, we have dramatically underfunded the physical infrastructure that our economy depends on.  That is why I have proposed the Rebuild America Act, to invest $1 trillion over five years to modernize our infrastructure.  It would be paid for by closing loopholes that allow profitable corporations to avoid paying taxes by, among other things, shifting their profits to the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens.

Importantly, the Rebuild America Act will support more than thirteen million good-paying jobs – jobs that our economy desperately needs.

2. I do too but didn't wanna risk pissing off certain somebodies.

Flint is just the latest example of what happens when a country neglects it's infrastructure while corporations and 1%ers hide their money and avoid paying billions of dollars in taxes.
