Man! You know TPTB don't give a crap about people, but please! Saw on Democracy Now TV program:

In 2014, General Motors in Flint realized the lead-filled water from the Flint River was corroding the engines of their cars. They contacted the City Manager of Flint who gave them permission to stop using the Flint River water and re-attach to the CLEAN water of the Detroit River. This was 2 years ago, which means TPTB in Flint knew all along that the water their residents were drinking was not fit for human consumption.

Capitalism at its worst: GM not only re-attached to the Detroit River, but they took ALL the water fountains out of their plant and installed water coolers. Yet, and yet, they said nothing to the residents about all the lead in the water they were drinking. Not even that it was actually corroding the brand-new engines of the cars they were making.

Upshot is that GM workers who live in Flint were drinking bottled water at work and lead-filled water at home. Oh, and even though people are drinking bottled water now that the news is out, they're STILL being charged for the lead-filled water in their homes that is CORRODING the pipes they're running through. Which means, of course, that they will eventually have to buy new pipes and pay for installation.

Btw, remember after 9/11 when George Bush said the next terrorist attack would be to poison our water supply? Well, the only water being poisoned in the U.S. is in Flint and it's being poisoned NOT by terrorists, but by the government. :rant:

Without Flint residents to work in that GM plant, there will be NO tax base because GM would have to MOVE.

Sorry, but a HEALTHY workforce comes first. GM should have notified its workers that their city water was unclean! And not just unclean but if you drink the stuff.... it can KILL you!

That's the overall plan.
