No, it’s true – “Tea Party” protesters are complaining about the level of service provided by the DC Metro.

Rep. Kevin Brady called for a government investigation into whether the government-run subway system adequately prepared for this weekend?s rally to protest government spending and government services.

SRSLY. A bunch of idiots go protest “socialism” and then turn around and complain that an underfunded Metro isn’t providing them enough service.

Brady says in his letter to Metro that overcrowding forced an 80-year-old woman and elderly veterans in wheelchairs to pay for cabs

I thought the “public option” would put the private providers out of service. And I thought TeaBaggers were all about self-sufficiency and personal responsibility. Why should little old ladies and disabled veterans be looked after by The State?

    I hope these “tenthers” didn’t use any public roads getting to DC.

    When I read the constitution I don’t see any reference to interstate highways being allowed by the gubmint.

  • From TPM:
    About What You Would Expect Update:
    The congressman complaining about the DC Metro voted against the stimulus package that boosted funding for the subway.

  • No more Socialist transportation! Let the little old lady hire a private cab! The Metro is only a “public option”.

    Careful GOP, your hypocrisy is showing.
