The victims of the Flint water crisis are forced to pay for the water they can't use.
It seems to be no end to the suffering of Flint people: now they have to pay enormous water bills. The city is desperate need of money so it threatens to place liens on the homes the residents owned for years.
“I got scared, for probably the first time since this all started this actually scared me,” said Melissa Mays, a mother and water activist trying to oppose paying for unclean water.
Since the beginning of the Flint water crisis, people couldn’t drink or use the lead-poisoned water for bathing normally, they also lost lots of money buying bottled water to prevent damage to their own and their children’s health.
“We have to have revenue coming in, so we can’t give people … water at the tap and not get revenue coming in to pay those bills,” Al Mooney, City of Flint Treasury Department representative claims. “Flint families should not have to pay for water that they still cannot drink,” Rep. Dan Kildee argues, “and they certainly should not lose their homes over this ongoing water crisis that was caused by the callous decisions of state government.”
Actually, the Flint Water Crisis is Obama’s Era heritage, so why won’t the city administration try to get the money from the one’s at fault, not their victims?!
