As Trump Aims to Cut EPA Budget, Watchdog Report Blasts Agency, State, and Local Officials for Oversight Lapses

Julia Conley, staff writer

A new report lays blame on all levels of government for the water crisis that has gripped Flint, Michigan for more than four years, and which safety advocates say has yet to be fully resolved.

Everyone should cease to pay taxes, as “this” government is doing everything it can to avoid paying for anything that benefits the 99%.

I believe this instance has much to do with racial/class injustice that is rampant in this country.
Flint is a poor minority community.
This situation would not have played out the same in a rich, white suburb anywhere in this country!

I’m afraid that might not work as only the poor would be put in jail!
The rich already do not pay taxes because of off shore accounts and because our tax laws are completely unjust!

Imagine living in Flint, and knowing that not only is the gov’t not taking responsibility for the poisoning, but the EPA is being dismantled as well.
