Only Government Can Protect Your Water

Quote of the Week.

President Obama in Flint, via Wonkette:
But volunteers don’t build county water systems, and keep lead from leaching into our drinking glasses. We cannot rely on faith groups to reinforce bridges and repave runways at the airport. We can’t ask second graders — even ones as patriotic as Isaiah Britt who raise all that money — to raise enough money to keep our kids healthy. You hear a lot about government overreach … Listen, it’s not government overreach to say our government is responsible to make sure you can wash your hands in your own sink, or shower in your own home, or cook for your family. These are the most basic services. There is no more basic element to sustaining human life than water. It’s not too much to expect for all Americans that their water’s gonna be safe.
