Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa did not mince words this afternoon when, during a City Hall news conference, he was asked about the possibility of a federal government shutdown.
The proposal from Republicans in Congress could have a $560 million impact on the city, according to Villaraigosa. The mayor then went on to criticize the entire situation.
"It's outrageous," he said.
