Detroit is starting to shut off people’s water again

The City of Detroit began shutting off water access to residents behind on payments Tuesday, with thousands at risk of losing access.

According to the Detroit Free Press, 64,769 delinquent residential customers owe the city’s water department a combined $48.9 million.

That figure tops the estimated 41,000 individuals who Food and Water Watch (FWW), an advocacy group, says lacked any water as of January (there is likely overlap between the groups).

    That’s normally what happens when you don’t pay your water bill for a while. Why can’t these people pay their water bills; how much does water cost in Detroit for crying out loud? What happen to the vibrant Obama economy I’m always reading about?

    Why is this news?

    Along with the Obama phones, even a little rain must fall, asking for someone now living in Detroit to pay for something, the nerve of people.
    It has become another entitlement.
    Bet they get it turned back on before the riots start.

    Not to worry; Duggan will appeal to his socialist buddy and leader in Wash. D.C. to make the taxpayers in the rest of the country bail out scum ridden Detroit by throwing our money at it!

After all iRS pisses Tax payers money on Illegals via rebates when taxes are nOT paid, the Pentagon ships more Arms Tanks and Howitzers to Iraq so that Isis can get Resupplied by the Cut and Run Iranian led SHIITES of the Iran Military instead of arming SUNNIs and KURDS… Typical OBHOZO Redistribution of our Disappearing Wealth…
