Yes, the town of Libby Montana is literally dying. Everybody that lives in it is dying. Their masters told them the poison they breathed was OK but in the end it is killing them. President Obama is going to help them instead of let them suffer and die as the Republicans did.

Libby Montana has long had the EPA in that area and there have been many documanetaries about its finding.That is a old a stroy as three mile island and goes back many administrtions. The clean up has gone on for years and they have bought out many of the people that live there but again many will not leave. The problem goes back many decades to the min9ing in the area.
