Rep. Moore to Sen. Johnson: Help the Citizens of Flint
In response to threats by Senate Republicans to block emergency relief for the citizens of Flint, Michigan, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement
“With each passing day, we learn more about the tragic impact of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. As we continue to investigate this emergency, one thing remains abundantly clear: The magnitude of this disaster demands swift and immediate intervention from our colleagues in the Senate.
“Despite the urgent need for resources and funds, Republicans like Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) are trying to block emergency relief, demanding offsets for any supplemental aid. This is simply unacceptable. The citizens of Flint know all too well that every action, as well as every failure to act, can have severe consequences.
“There will be plenty of time for open debate about how to pay for this aid, but that time isn’t now. Now is the time for action. I call on Senator Johnson and his Republican colleagues to set aside their partisan blinders and join Senate Democrats in helping the good people of Flint.”
