    No one said it wasn't, please re-read for comprehension instead of reaction.

    Nope. Even in public buildings they pay their water bill. They just pay the bill with your money. And I haven't seen a public water fountain I would want to drink out of in 30 years.

    Doesn't the right to live come in to play here, or do you lose that after birth? Is that really the conservative position here? No right to life after birth? No right to water? What's next, no right to breathe?
    All this "free water" is being paid for. Do you assume that utility workers work for free? I mean seriously dude, you are smarter than your argument.

    In Wisconsin at least, all the potable water is owned and controlled by "public utilities". The water isn't free per se, I mean you pay a water bill tax, but it is still very, very cheap here. I would be opposed to it becoming controlled by a for-profit business.

    Just another one of the many benefits the "free market" provides. I'm sure that private businesses will provide a solution.
    Actually the trillions of dollars Obama has spent since coming into office might have contributed to remedying problems like this but, despite those trillions, there has been nothing to show for it except ever increasing debt.

    Canada has most of the fresh water in the world but, like the Keystone Pipeline, nothing has been done to take advantage of this blessing.

    I'm curious to see how many people will think "Hmmm, that could have been worse, maybe I should do something to make sure I'm not affected as much next time". Or more accurately, how many will just go back to Facebook and fantasy football and be caught completely off guard again next time.

    I dislike this argument. It's not like we have $4 billion burning a hole in our pockets, looking for the most beneficial place to be spent, it is that there is enough screaming and hand wringing, plus a healthy dose of the inability of most to understand or care how much money that really is, that it will be manufactured (borrowed) so that everybody feels better.

    That and will the city and state governments say, "we might want to look into an alternate water source, because we got lucky and next time we might not be so lucky".

    Here in the Los Angeles area, the Department of Water & Power is a monopoly that pays it's people more than any other agency. It also has the most lucrative benefits package, and it turns over it's orchestrated surpluses to the City of Los Angeles to the tune of $10's to $100's of millions every year.

    Of course replacing 90 year old water mains like the one that burst near UCLA is not high on the priority list. This is government at work. Pay, and payoffs, are more important than the mission.
