People see residents of LA, MV, and PA as rich suckers! Open piggy banks who will always let others invade their wallets. After Mtn.View blows that 30 mil from Google they will be digging in your wallets again too! These unions and "public servants" will stop at nothing to suck you dry. Better get ready for more and even on the state level too if gov moonbeam has his way and the sheep don't speak up! As long as you keep perpetuating the waste you can't complain or effect change. Good luck with that. Suckers!
