Protesters removed from D.C. hearing
As D.C. Council Chairman and Mayor-elect Vincent Gray announced the date and location of the meeting, Chris an advisory neighborhood commissioner from Adams Morgan and Lacy Mackley, began shouting that there were many high-income people in the city willing to pay more in taxes to preserve social services.
The council is expected to vote Tuesday on a proposal to close a $188 million budget shortfall in the current year's budget through an array of spending cuts. Some of those proposed cuts would affect programs that provide temporary cash assistance to needy families and energy assistance programs.
