Oh, So NOW Congress Takes Lead Contamination Seriously

You’re not going to believe this. No, wait, yes you are.

A day after House members learned that the drinking water in one of the Congressional office buildings had been shut off due to lead contamination, a bipartisan group of 61 representatives sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency demanding that it improve its lead regulations.The letter urges the EPA to update the Lead and Copper Rule, the regulation meant to keep the U.S.’s drinking water free from lead contamination, so that the threshold for action is lower.

Now if we could get someone to shoot up congress with an AR15, we could get gun control.

Or withdraw their health care and make them go to the VA.

Now we know the trick to making problems matter.
