Reading through Larubia's response was heartbreaking and a sober reminder that bad policies make life hell on the people that are the recipients of these policies. They affect us all. One has only to look at Flint, Michigan and see how Republican's policies have allowed stupidity to reign over common sense in regards to saving money at the expense of the people they serve. Now they are stuck with several deaths from Legionaries and the amount of lead poisoning is staggering. There is over $600 million dollar settlement that is being distributed to the victims and the city is still left with replacing the pipes that leached lead into the drinking water of the residents of Flint. There are plenty of other cities where they are left with 100 year old inlet pipes to people's houses from the street, pipes in the streets and the wastewater pipes bringing waste away from homes and businesses. China is spending money hand over fist to become dominant on the world stage in trade, infrastructure and investing in their country. We are left with obstructionism and the mantra that anything we spend is too much money. Nothing was done with infrastructure in the previous administration and they are already crying over the cost of what Biden is proposing currently. We never seem to have too much money to give away in the form of tax cuts to the wealthiest among us yet reject anything that will benefit the average citizen. Get this done as it is an investment that we cannot afford not to be a part of.
