city council, Clinton, democrats, Flint, governor, hillary, republicans, voters
The Democrats, Hillary, and Bernie have all jumped on the bandwagon of blaming the Republican governor for the Flint, Michigan, water crisis. Problem is, the Flint City Council voted 7-1 to change to using the river water because that was cheaper. To use the water, the council also agreed to use the water system the city put in place years earlier when the city provided its own water instead of using the Detroit system.
I say this is a problem, because the Democrats know that the city council is, or was, primarily, if not completely, Democrat at the time. The one holdout wanted to pursue a different tack. But the Democrats saw themselves saving money that, probably, could be used to give themselves bonuses and higher salaries or something. Instead, the city council condemned Flint citizens and their children to a slow, inexorable, untimely death from lead poisoning. As soon as the information became public knowledge, the Democrats immediately aimed all their arrows at the governor, in the hopes no one determines their culpability.
The mainstream media and the Democrats are, again, leading the public into thinking the Republicans are the reason children have lead in their system, when the reality is, as usual, the Democrats have forced a situation that is deplorable. But will anyone call them to account? I’m surprised and dismayed that Fox News or any of the Republican or Conservative radio and television networks have not jumped on this. This is a good way for the presidential candidates to show how the Democrats could care less about the average citizen, but instead concentrate on keeping themselves in power, and abandoning their voters when the Democrats cause issues.
