    This is corruption at the highest levels. I'd expect libs to put something up like this meme to get people to ignore the fact that Democrats are to blame for this and that the EPA knew about this and said nothing.

    So instead of accepting responsibility, let's deflect and slam conservatives. Propaganda at its lowest.

    It's a shame what's going on in Flint. Sadly, you're gonna soon see a lot more cities just like Flint.

    Correct, Zaac. Many cities still have century old lead piping.

    Flint, MI is not the only city with a natural hazard that detrimental to the life and well-being of children and adults. What about the thousands of families in Porter Rach, CA? The Southern California Gas Company has had a leak of natural gas for months, and it was kept quiet for months!

    Even the environmental governor, Jerry Brown himself, took forever to step in and speak up about the disaster unleashed by this corporate giant on the innocent citizens in Southern Cali!

    http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-adv-gas-leak-20151203-story.html

    The truth is, no one knows just how bad this leak is and how much harm it will cause the residents of this upper class neighborhood. And it was all because the corporate giant tried to hide their mistake and keep it silent! Sounds like Flint, on a smaller scale.

    So we have determined the op is "stupid", "insulting", and "propaganda".

    Of course the cause of the problem in Flint Michigan is not Pro-Lifers. The problem is the Democrat run leadership that mishandled this terribly. This is the kind of devastation that occurs when liberals are in charge.

    Is that a hunch? A lucky guess, maybe? Or are you a prophet? Or do you work for or have your portfolio heavily invested in PVC?

    I think that what we can infer from this situation is that Democrats and their supporters hate children.

    See how much sense that makes?

    If that is true why is it that the GOP blocks aid to Flint?


    From: http://www.politicususa.com/2016/02...-energy-bill-republicans-agree-aid-flint.html


    Senate Democrats stood with Flint today by blocking the advancement of an energy bill after Republicans continued to drag their feet on an aid package for the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

    This is RIDICULOUS and DISGUSTING. Help those people! This should not be about partisan politics. Any time there is an emergency ANYWHERE in the US, we expect the government to step in and render aid, and it does.

    What's going on in Flint is on the scale of any tornado, hurricane, flood, or snowstorm that may strike a municipality.
    These folks will be dealing with this poisoning for the rest of their lives.

    If fixing Flint's water is so important, why not give it it's own bill instead of attaching it to a politically divisive bill?

    Because stupid politicians like to play politics and then pretend like they are trying to help you. Everybody has to have an angle.

    Why can't folks just do what's right?

    Because the GOP controlled House and Senate would never allow it out of committee.

    Ok, then once they propose a clean bill and it gets stopped by the GOP, then criticize them. Until then it looks to me like the Democrats are the ones playing politics.

    f
    Did you complain or do you complain when the Republicans add poison pill riders to bills that are unrelated to the proposed bill?
