USA: Beacon of Stupid - Interference vs. Inconvenience

The 2,000,000 handful of people who came to our nation's capital on 9/12 to protest the government's involvement in everything are actually upset that the government didn't do enough with DC's public transit system to accommodate the influx of people. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) had this to say about it:
"These participants, whose tax dollars were used to create and maintain this public transit system, were frustrated and disappointed that our nation's capital did not make a great effort to simply provide a basic level of transit for them."
So, government involvement is okay when protesters are inconvenienced, but not when they can't afford medical treatment.

Asshats, the lot of them.
