    Legally, the EPA And FEMA cannot act in states business unless the governor declared a state of emergency.
    Has the governor asked for federal help? Bc according to the news this morning, they were turned down.
    What’s going on?

      here is some info jovie…

      LANSING President Barack Obama on Saturday declared a federal emergency in Flint, freeing up to $5 million in federal aid to immediately assist with the public health crisis, but he denied Gov. Rick Snyder’s request for a disaster declaration.

      A disaster declaration would have made larger amounts of federal funding available more quickly to help Flint residents whose drinking water is contaminated with lead. But under federal law, only natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods are eligible for disaster declarations, federal and state officials said. The lead contamination of Flint’s drinking water is a manmade catastrophe.

      It’s the difference between a federal emergency (President Obama declared a federal state of emergency in Flint on January 16) and a federal disaster declaration ( which is reserved for NATURAL disasters, would make greater amounts of federal funding available.) The horror in Flint was not a natural disaster but caused by Snyder’s desire to save money at the cost of children’s brains being poisoned.

    Michael Moore want POTUS to go to Flint, do you guys think he need to go? POTUS can’t just jump up and go places like we can, things have to be plan, Secret Services have to make sure it is safe.

      looks like the GOV is trying to make the EM the fall guy….but who appointed this EM…and who is accountable for the behavior of this EM…all leads back to Gov Snyder…and the legislature that also enable this…

      ultimately it is the voters who placed him into office TWICE who should take a long look in the mirror as well…

      But, again, with all the gridlock, pushback and lack of morality in the legislative branch, why is it placed on PBO to be the one ‘raiding’ and ‘deporting’? How is it he is always handed an outsized portion of blame??

      That’s assuming 5 Justices vote with reason and not with political partisanship in mind.

  29. January 20, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    From Rachel Maddow’s show last night.

    This point must be said OVER AND OVER AND OVER about the Criminal Enterprise in Flint.

    MADDOW: Governor`s remarks tonight in the state of the state address. The only micro-fact check I would make on the governor`s remarks is when he said government failed you, federal, state and local leaders by breaking the trust. In this case, local leaders were not at fault. Local leaders had been replaced in Flint by the people who reported only to the governor.

    They used the emergency management statute in Michigan to replace local leaders with emergency managers who reported to Rick Snyder and those are the people who made the decision that resulted in the poisoning. That is how this started.

    IOW,

    There were NO LOCAL LEADERS FROM FLINT INVOLVED IN THIS CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE.

    There were also NO FEDERAL LEADERS INVOLVED IN THIS CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE.

        January 20, 2016 at 1:36 pm

        First of all, it is not FLOTUS to be attached to PBO’s hip every time he meets with dignitaries. I can’t imagine FLOTUS not going if it was required or she had an option. PBO and FLOTUS have met with China numerous times over the seven years and invited them as their honored guest to a State Dinner. JEB is grabbing at straws to ignite is failing presidential bid. I hope after the first three primaries when he comes in dead last he will quit putting the American people through his B.S. Besides, when has a “Bush” ever pronounced anyone’s name correctly. Apparently English is not their mother tongue, Southern Gibberish is.
