Time for Obama to Bring Flint Water Crisis Mess to an End

Allen Overton, Rhea Suh

"Enough."

That is the single word we have for the President when he arrives in Flint.

President Obama deserves recognition for acknowledging the Flint water crisis before other decision makers would. His words helped push City, State and EPA officials to finally move on the issue. His trip to Flint this week will help keep the issue in the public eye. For that, we thank him.

But the Flint Water Crisis has been allowed to fester for two years. Enough.

Obama, send my tax dollars to Flint, not Fluor!

"We need a national campaign to replace and improve our drinking-water infrastructure."

But what about Haliburton and all the weapons' makers? As billions pour out to overseas KILL projects, there's not a dime left for the kind of national security that makes U.S citizens actually SAFE...

If you can't drink your own water, what part of security matters? And how much trust has broken down in the covenant typically shared with elected "leaders"?
