the bottom line is it is going to cost money to do it
and it will be the tax payers that foot the bill
if the protesters were billed for it maybe that would make them look less like the money grabing pigs
they seem to be~~

Just because you're a single tax payer it doesn't mean you're allowed to destroy or deface property paid for with tax payer money. The people protesting were in the minority just like union workers in general, there are a lot of tax payers out there who's money went to build that building who shouldn't have to pay to fix it after the union trash messed it up.

So when word got out that it could cost the state of Wisconsin up to $7.5 million to clean up after the protesters, it didn't take long for the story to make its way to Fox.

Stop lying, the Tea Party members offered to do it for free to save the already broke state of WI the money would it cost them if they paid people to clean up the liberal retard mess that was left.

Capitol protesters out, but high clean-up costs remain

It would go a long way if those who caused this damage would clean it up, rather than saddling the taxpayers with this expense. Somehow, I don't think we're going to see that happen. People have the right to protest, as has been said here ad nauseum, but what about this. The taxpayers should have the right to bill the unions and protestors for this cost.
Wow! This "clean-up company" is taking advantage of a situation to bilk the tax-payers! They should get a few other estimates first.

That's exactly why the Tea Party group is offering to do the clean up for free.

Thats how those liberals roll. It is for the little people to do the work and clean up after us. For we are Liberals!
Honestly I think the Unions for the Teachers should get a bill!
