Democrats Claim Trump Doesn’t Care, But Look What He Just Did For Flint MI

President Donald Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency has given a huge grant to assist in implementing the infrastructure upgrades necessary in Flint, Michigan after the massive water crisis.

    Trump could cure cancer and they would still hate him because they hate him for purely an ideological reason, and not a rational one.

      Anything that Trump accomplishes that is good and helpful will never make the airwaves of the present MSM. And that is why he tweets.

      Fake News:
      “Thousands of medical professionals thrown out of work due to Trump”
      “Trump Favors Big Pharma Over Medical Professionals Careers”

    Is this part of the EPA’s mandate, and appropriately funded by Congress, or is this leftovers from last year?

    I’ve been trying, though unsuccessful so far, to find a podcast which provides an alternative description of Flint’s water supply problems. Roughly speaking the podcast alleges that Flint’s water problems stems from Detroit’s financial problems. The allegations were:
    • Detroit’s disappearing car industry under decades of Democrat rule led to huge ongoing legacy payouts and declining tax revenues to sustain them.
    • Detroit was desperate to increase revenues to pay for its commitments
    • Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) was losing money on Detroit residents not paying for water they were using and had to find more money to continue operating
    • DWSD raised water prices to the town of Flint, and Flint started work on a pipeline to another water source supplier as they were unhappy with the pricing
    • Negotiations between DWSD and Flint broke down, with DWSD terminating the water supply contract to Flint with short advance notice
    • Flint, unwilling to pay whatever DWSD wanted and desperate to find an alternate water supply chose to implement an old emergency plan until the pipeline to a better source was completed.
    • And here is where the story in the MSM really starts; if you read Wikipedia all the above information is not present. All the blame is on the Flint officials and none is on the conditions that made them choose the Flint River water as an interim water supply.

      If the problem originates from a Democrat stronghold, the problem does not exist.

    This is precisely what environmental policy should be about: real pollution, conservationism, that sort of thing. Past decade plus though, climate change cultism sucks all the air (and money, private and public) out of the room.

    Cut the EPA’s climate change budget with one hand and then give it back for real problems (like Flint) with the other hand. The left are going to scream bloody murder regardless of what Trump does, but by simultaneously tackling a high profile and tangible issue (the kind of environmental issue that hits home for normal people, like drinking water), he makes the Koolaid drinkers look like lunatics when they scream about him destroying the planet.
