“Point of use treatment is a lousy solution in the long run. I would like to see him invest the millions needed to upgrade the root of the problem, the aging infrastructure in flint.”

My point being a bunch of $50 water filters is better than giving Puerto Rico paper towels but it is only a temporary fix that will likely not last very long and there will be a very low chance of follow up when the filters are spent. Public health is still at risk and the local/state/federal government is not going to go 100% into this issue to fix it as the cost of a new distribution system is astronomical.
