Money for Fluoridation but Not Basic Services?

Re "Water Agency OKs Fluoride," Feb. 12:

We are going to spend $5 million so I can wash my car, water my lawn, take a shower and flush my toilet with fluoridated water. At the same time, we are closing health clinics and discussing police layoffs because we don't have the money for them. When was the concept of setting priorities banished?
