The latest from that Petri dish of left-wing ideas called Detroit:

U.S. Rep. John Conyers wants President Barack Obama to sanction use of an earlier multimillion-dollar award to Michigan to help pay delinquent water bills of low-income residents threatened by the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department’s most aggressive shutoff campaign ever.

“Assisting low-income residents with paying their water bills would help avert a public health crisis,” Conyers, D-Detroit, said in a letter to Obama Thursday. Separately, he asked Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell to declare a public health emergency, calling the shutoff campaign “draconian” and raising concerns about what it could mean to the young, sick or elderly.

Alternate headline: Liberal congressman asks liberal president to force everybody else to pay for inevitable effect of unchecked liberalism.

    "Liberal congressman asks liberal president to force everybody else to pay for inevitable effect of unchecked liberalism"
    That is exactly what this amounts to.

    This is more pivotal/subsistence issue than many might take at face value. Sure, it's another liberal leveraging of [someone else's] future to pay for another's past bills.., but it's also about 1) availability 2) quality and lastly 3) deeply diminished expectations.

    There's no secret water is key to life, and prog's are in no way above deploying access to basic infrastructure/utilities & services as a leveraging point. Our OR town of 10,000 saw (3) THREE water and sewer rate hikes just in 2013. At the same time, our water 'quality' has fallen off a CLIFF.

    We have (2) residences, Portland metro and S. Oregon. The diff. in taste, quality and agitated acid reflux is off the chart. Ask yourself, why do so many Americans have acid reflux? And WHY has it become a multi-billion dollar 'industry'?

    Did you know that Dasini and Aqua Pure bottled water is just purified Detroit River water? I NEVER purchase that crap – just because it does come from Detroit. The politicians of this state have literally beaten and robbed Michigan taxpayers and handed over the goods to Detroit. And people like John Conyers just wants more without as much as a thank you for all the sh!t we have already subsidized. I am sick of Detroit and it's ungrateful population. This is what Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society" has become – bloodsuckers.
