Yea! Let's fill the Great Lakes with sewage! Great idea, Republicans. Today's GOP has lost all common sense and decency. If you let sewer systems fail, it will cost much more to fix them in the long run. It will also ruin property values, hurt the economy and make people sick.

This is a prime example of why many of us that might vote GOP just cannot vote for their environmentally destructuve measures. For God's sake go cut some other bloated programs. What are you gonna do when the fresh water is gone?
