    Unfortunately this is happening all across the country. Taxpayers will be paying for these Occupy protests for many years.


    The City of Los Angeles reportedly faces millions of dollars in expenses brought about by the Occupy LA movement.

    City agencies have been ordered to calculate what was spent on the Occupy LA protests.

    Repairs to City Hall’s lawn where the Occupy group set up camp on Oct. 1 will require an estimated $400,000. The police action to clear out the encampment on Nov. 30 cost more than $700,000.

    Additional expenses are attributed to hauling away debris from the camp, and cleaning up graffiti that defaced City Hall marble walls and trees.

    Mayor Villaraigosa says more budget cuts will be necessary to offset the costs.

    What kind of budget cuts will be made? OWS really has sunk many of these cities who were already skating on thin ice. Once again the Taxpayers get screwed.

    OWS has only helped themselves and their fellow far Left Socialists/Progressives. They have completely screwed the Taxpayers. Say what you want about the Tea Partiers,they didn't screw Taxpayers this way.

    The idea of protests is to make the government hurt to make them change their ways.

    This Mayor especially,is a real wingnut. He fully supported OWS and now he's demanding budget cuts which will hurt other Citizens. It all gets back to the Left's bizarre notion that their rights are more important than other Citizens' rights. Now all Citizens will have to suffer because of OWS. This Mayor should be removed.
