Washington, D.C. – In response to reports that Sen. Ted Cruz is standing in the way of the bipartisan Flint aid deal in the Senate, LCV National Press Secretary Seth Stein issued the following statement:
“Clean drinking water is a right, not a privilege. Sen. Cruz is playing politics with the Flint crisis – it is simply despicable to hold up this bipartisan aid package while the people of Flint continue to suffer. His repeated assaults on clean water stand in stark contrast to the outspoken leadership of Hillary Clinton, who continues to point out the injustices of polluted water across the country, especially for marginalized communities.”
