Another GOP Teabagger Train Wreck

From Steve Benen at The Washington Monthly:

Apparently, Brady heard complaints from some of his constituents who
traveled to D.C. to protest "big government." They were disappointed to
discover, however, that the government hadn't done more to satisfy
their public-transportation expectations, and now want other government
officials to address the problem.

In some instances, Brady said constituents relied on private
enterprise -- taxi cabs -- rather than the (ahem) public option. The
conservative lawmaker described this as a bad thing. Local officials, Brady said, should have made "a great effort to simply provide a basic level of transit" to the public.

Read that sentence again and replace "transit" with "health care coverage."

But it gets better than that... Via Greg Sargent at the Plumline, Brady, along with every GOP member, voted against funding for the D.C. Metro in the stimulus package:

Brady’s office complained about a train shortage. “METRO did not prepare for Tea Party March!” he tweeted. “People couldn’t get on, missed start of march. I will demand answers.”

But earlier this year, Brady voted against the stimulus package. It provided millions upon millions of dollars for all manner of improvements to … the D.C. Metro.

Crash and burn...
