Tea Party Protesters Protest D.C. Metro Service
It seems to good to be true, doesn't it?

Tea Party Protesters Protest D.C. Metro Service

Brody Mullins reports on money and politics.

Protesters who attended Saturdays Tea Party rally in Washington found a new reason to be upset: Apparently they are unhappy with the level of service provided by the subway system.

Rep. Kevin Brady asked for an explanation of why the government-run subway system didnt, in his view, adequately prepare for this past weekends rally to protest government spending and government services.

Seriously.


Check out the comments. Such as:

Most of these Tea Party clowns were probably so upset at the METRO service because they were stuck waiting on the platform for the arrival of the white only cars.

1. They have no business riding the socialist METRO anyway.
If they were true capitalists they would have all taken cabs or driven themselves.

Ayn Rand would be ashamed of them.

4. There was no real problem with Metro. I've seen it crowded like that
going to a Redskins game. They are just saying there was a problem to bolster their lie that a brazillion people showed up. Nothing extraordinary about the number of riders.

And you can't complain if you don't vote for the funding. Idiot.

I'm one that liked the Metro. Jeez, We went to a wedding in Rockville MD and had to park our car in a lighted parking lot, pay for a pass, go thru the turnstile and into Washington D.C. for the day. I got to see all the sights I wanted to, and then got to travel back to Rockville without any hassle at all. The stations were clean and the people seemed to be normal too. Did I miss something?

BTW, I didn't go during the teabagging thing, but during the other guys term .

Down here they don't even like the idea of light rail to the major cities, something about costing too much, but let CSX ask for roadways, railways and land, the politicians are ready to give more than asked for.
