If this scene ever makes it to film, no actor will be able to match the anger and righteous indignation of Maryland U.S. Representative, Elijah Cummings, here at the first Congressional hearings on the contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan. He was just too honestly angry about this travesty and genuinely indignant about this crime perpetrated against Flint's citizens for anybody to ever duplicate the beauty and justice of his response. In the video below, during the Feb. 3 hearings, Cummings is speaking to Keith Creagh, Interim Director of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality "Are the people paying, right now, in Flint for water they cannot wash in and cannot use, and cannot drink?! Are they paying water bills? .... Why would they be paying for water that they cannot even use, that is poisoning them? That's not American! This is not a Third World Country! Are they paying those bills?! Are you gonna relieve them of that?!"
