Detroit: Water Shut Only for Residents, Not Corporations Who Owe Millions

Ain't this a kick in the pants:
More than 15,000 households have had their taps turned off for being past due. Yet the bankrupt city hasn’t touched 40 businesses who owe $9.5 million in total.
Conservatives have argued that this is a simple matter of paying bills. So why is Detroit only going after residents who are $150 in the whole and ignoring corporations who owe hundreds of thousands? Why is a mother with 5 kids not able to get water but a golf course dumping gallons every minute being exempt?

Why does any American citizen have to beg for charity water from Canada? WTF?

Explain this one, teabagger.

  1. It's not hard to explain, really. The philosophy of Tea Party loonies is to kick people when they're down so that there can be more for them. It shows in the way the Scott administration treats those who lose their jobs: Minimal unemployment benefits; a broken website to get them; and harass them with debt collections.

    The Tea Party movement is explained easily as human selfishness and greed at its finest.
