Why is Los Angeles broke? Why do liberals destroy cities and waste their tax revenues on programs that are not part of a governmental function?
As of May 10 the city of Los Angeles will no longer be able to meet its payroll. As of June 30, every dime in the reserves will be gone. Los Angeles is dead broke. "With the city facing the possibility of running out of money by next month, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa today called on the city to shut down non-revenue-generating services -- such as parks, street-sweeping and libraries -- for two days a week. These are the government services that should be provided--not health clinics for illegals.
The Mayor said that the police and fire departments would not be affected by the closures, which he said would take effect Monday." This is because the DWP would not give $73 million to prop up the city budget--they wanted a 24% rate increase in exchange. For years tax payers have had their rates jacked up in order to cover the out of control spending of the city of Los Angeles.
The city of Los Angeles is going to have a fiscal collapse. What will be interesting to see is if the people of LA even care of government is closed 40% of the time--will it be missed?
What influence has illegal immigration had on the city finances? LA wastes hundreds of millions of dollars on illegal immigrants due to their open-door policy. Also, the unions' demands are out of control and since they support these liberal Democrats, they get rewarded with retirement plans and other perks paid for by the tax payers.
We have the same issue in Maryland and Montgomery County where elected liberal politicians waste tax payer funds on illegals, more social welfare policies, and programs that have nothing to do with good government services. Our liberal elected officials are not fiscally responsible and they do not look at real cut backs that would balance their budget.
People across the US are mad and are tired of these liberal politicians wasting their money on programs that support illegals, unions or bad policies.
