Rick Snyder Made Flint's Water Crisis Happen


Rick Snyder Made Flint's Water Crisis Happen

Alec MacGillis

The tragic lead poisoning of the Flint water supply in Michigan is a study in bureaucratic bungling, racial inequity and national media inattention. But the fallout from the crisis has obscured another lesson: There are consequences when those in power are able simply to circumvent the public will.


The eloquence of the truth but sadly after the fact. One thing we all should recognize is happening everywhere is that democracy is no longer respected by our leaders. It is a very bad sign for the future and as we see in Flint... It can literally be hazardous.


No way, I heard, during the gop debate, it was the democrats that did so.
