Here comes yet another bailout of .FEDGOV web of entanglement for the Cesspool of Detoilet.
It’s a basic human right: water. [snip]
*cough*bullsh!t*cough* Provide where it is written. Anywhere. What passes for journalism, anymore.
But could the United Nations soon help the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department provide the service to struggling customers?
Water department spokeswoman Curtrise Garner says it’s a possibility — but for now, the water bills must be paid.
“We do have programs that do help those that are just totally in need; can’t afford it — but we also know that there are also people who can’t afford it would can not pay and we know this because, once we shut water off, the next day they are in paying the bill in full. So we do know that that has become a habit as well,” said Garner.
And while Garner says water is “a God-given right,” [like Ghey “marriage”. See what I did there?] she says there is a cost to move water from the water resource to the customer and that the infrastructure costs money.
According to the Free Press, the average Detroit water bill is now $75 a month — much higher than the nation’s average rate of about $40.
Damn near double the national average. I’m sure the Public-Private DRIC Bridge will be as efficient. I’m shocked, SHOCKED I tell ya.
Disgusting. Can’t come up with $2.50 per day but, have money for going to those three casinos, attending Go Team! nonsense, and plasma HD Tee Vees are a “God-given right” like Obamaphones are too.
Just try teaching our youth that Communism is wrong these days.
And remember: it was a "republican" (and the party's standard bearer at that), who with the aid of fellow "republicans" in Lansing decided go use Michigan Taxpayer money to BAILOUT Detroit.
I cannot imagine why Detroit would ever have gone bankrupt in the first place....
