Democrats have tried relentlessly to send relief to the residents of Michigan, but their efforts have been repeatedly stopped by republicans. John Cornyn, who is a republican senator from Texas, stated that democrats should not put the cart before the horse when it comes to helping the residents of Michigan. He believes that the water issue is a state and local problem, and it should be addressed as such.
The water crisis in Flint is devastating, out of control, and affecting the health of thousands of innocent Americans. Most of the city is made up of low-income, minority families that now have NO access to fresh water.
Some people have died as the result of consuming water contaminated with lead. This is one of the worst public health crisis in American history, and many people claim that America does not have the $400 million needed to help the residents of Flint. However, recently our government handed out $30 billion to Israel…
Israel has also demanded that America give them another $50 billion, which officials in D.C. are reportedly negotiating presently. Israel has insisted that the aid they have been getting from America is not enough to combat terrorism. But when America is faced with the choice of saving its own people from a neurotoxic water supply, and appeasing Israel’s demands, it is appalling that our political officials choose to frivolously give away taxpayer money that we need to help our own.
