Here in Wisconsin we are seeing even higher numbers of lead poisoning than they have in Flint:

Lead in drinking water: By the numbers | WisconsinWatch.org

I think if other communities start looking, they will be horrified to see their own numbers. I doubt these cases are isolated.

Meanwhile, the President is on his two week vacation at a luxury resort in Hawaii.

And Mooch says Americans have lost hope. LOL.

Flint is 57% Black. Clearly Obama is racist.

Had Obama and his cronies not looted the Treasury to further the destruction of America, problems like this could have been addressed.

Obama & Democrats don't care about them.

I'm curious to hear what the posters here think an appropriate response to this would be? I will grant you that it is very unlikely that President Obama will solve this problem while still in office. What response do you think would be appropriate from Trump when he inherits this problem? And how likely do you think it is that he will pick this issue up?

The Left will call Trump racist if he doesn't fix it immediately even though Obama has sat around in his mom jeans on the issue all this time.

That's the point.

That does not answer my question. What *should* the president's response to this issue be?
