Republicans Responsible for Lead Poisoning in Flint Michigan
Republican Governor Rick Snyder OK’d switching the water supply from the Detroit system which gets it’s water from Lake Huron (the Great Lakes) to the Flint River in April 2014 to save money. The Flint River water being more corrosive, caused high levels of lead in the drinking water. As a result, children who drank this contaminated water will likely suffer life long brain damage from lead poisoning.
UPDATE: As of 1-5-2016, The US Department of Justice in Michigan has indicated that they will be launching an investigation into the Flint Water issue.
MICHIGAN REPUBLICANS SUBVERTING DEMOCRACY
The reason why Republicans are responsible for Lead Poisoning in Flint Michigan is because Michigan Republicans created a law which allows Gov Rick Snyder to appoint Emergency Managers who he can install in any city he wants. These Emergency Managers can bypass and circumvent the power of elected officials and do practically anything they want.
This video shows how Michigan Republicans are ramming legislation through which is going into immediate effect, even though they don’t have the 2/3 majority vote required by law. Note how Republican Michigan Speaker of the House Subverts Democracy by NOT counting the votes. This is a OUTRAGE and goes against everything democracy is supposed to stand for.
Since Republican Gov Rick Snyder installed a Emergency Manager in Flint MI and over-rode the elected officials ability to make any decisions, it was ultimately Republican Gov Rick Snyder’s decision to switch the water supply from the Detroit system which gets it water from Lake Huron (the Great Lakes) to the Flint River in April 2014 to save money. Therefore he and his Republican majority is responsible for this outrage.
