    What is with you dems..... You talk about "tax breaks" as if you even know the tax code, not to mention the notion that you all adhere to which is that corporations owe you and the government money. As if the government and you are doing these businesses a favor......

    It's almost you want to see these businesses fail, so you have something to cry about - like having no job....

    If it wasn't for these corporations you would be living in a hut spearing fish.

    The lack of clean drinking water should be a concern to the US President, and maybe the EPA. Where did that $7 trillion he spent since first becoming President go?

    Regardless, do you really want to be the party of "We don't care if the water's clean?" All politics aside, getting safe water from the tap should not be an outrageous "nanny state" thing. Basic consumer-driven idea - you pay the city for the water, you should get clean water.
    Oh agreed. I'm not arguing against water being a public utility or water safety. Just saying the "natural" environment is full of things toxic to the average human. All in all I think public water utilities do a great job of it here in the US. There are things I don't like, fluoridation for one. But I can avoid that if I so desire.

    There'll probably be more leaving if they can't get clean water.

    IMO, it's cute when you pretend that you want the EPA to place more regulations on farmers so you can blame problems created by private businesses on the government

    Of course you didn't. You don't want to admit that it was private businesses and a lack of regulation that caused the problem.

    You're focused on blaming Obama, who had nothing to do with the problem. That's why you're dishonestly pretending that you think this should be his concern

    The EPA simply doesn't have the time nor the resources to save water supplies from farm run-off. Besides, we won't have time to worry about clean water when global warming happens. Why bother, right?

    Well as a libertarian this is one area I agree with that water in itself should be done by "public utilities" as you are still paying for a service and it's a lot easier to get rid of public utilities managers at the local level. What T. Boone Pickens was doing was down right criminal and politicians were cheering for that stupid plan.

    What?

    What do farmers have to do with this?

    You amaze me sometimes. Now you're attacking farmers? Ha...

    Apparently, you hate everyone and anything that produces anything other than progressive talking points.
