Activists Erect Faux Shantytown To Draw Attention To Federal Budget Cuts

CHICAGO, IL - DECEMBER 06: Protestors sit in shanties constructed of cardboard in the Federal Building Plaza on December 6, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois. The shantytown, which they dubbed 'Durbinville' after U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), was built to persuade Durbin to push for an increase of taxes on the wealthy and oppose cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
