Quotes from the news wire:
There was a failure of government in terms of people not using common sense enough to prevent this from happening and identifying it soon enough ... and the people that did this work for me, so I am responsible, my focus now, though is how do we address it? How do we follow up? How do we help these parents and these kids that could go on for years?
It's not about just moving money, this is a case of a handful of government officials making extremely poor decisions that had massive consequences for people. This raises a cultural question. Most government employees are great people. They work really hard. But there are places where people were following kind of the letter of the federal lead and copper rule far too literally and not in the appropriate fashion that led to this.
And so that's the problem here is we know the ones that have higher levels to do appropriate follow-up care, so really, we need to establish the right medical protocols, the public health pieces, the educational process things, to watch these kids for years that didn't have higher blood levels in terms of a blood test. Because they could be affected.
