Please tell me you wrote that last sentence in jest.

Nope. This is a great example of how an assault on government results in misery and death. We have regulations for a reason.

Why?! Outside the Breitbart/Allen West bubble, even the right is tired of this shit. The free thinking people of this country are sick and tired of this.

I'm not sick and tired, I'm outraged and devastated. Imagine if these were the kids you taught and they now all have lead poisoning because of the decision made by the governor to cut costs. These people were powerless to begin with, and then poisoned by the government that's supposed ton protect them. In the richest country on earth. It's a calamity.

Flint Water Scandal -- Democrats Try to Pin Blame on Republicans

They passed the emergency manager law twice and put saving money over the concerns of citizens. The council had no power. Also, they're blaming the Democratic government of Flint for the economic crisis in the city and not the fact that GM fucking closed almost all the factories in the 80s at the same time they were making record profits. GM destroyed that city. Take away the main employer in any city and the city is going to suffer.

He repeated a rehearsed line 3 times after Christie even pointed it out after the 2nd time.

I assume you did not read the link posted.

Okay, the city council and mayor had no power. The blame is on the evil capitalist. All the cities controlled by Democrats are the shining gems of America at its best.

San Francisco and Portland are having problems because too many people want to move to them. That article simply repeated the myth that Democrats are the reason why cities suck. But many of the cities that ended up having severe economic problems were Rust Belt cities where manufacturing left. They were victims of neoliberalism and globalization.
