Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Tex.): Hypocrite

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Tex.) voted for shutting down part of the government, which included shutting down access to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. On 2 October 2013, he criticized a park ranger for doing her job, which was mandated in part by the vote of Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Tex.)

The passage below comes from this source: Mark Segraves, “Congressman Confronts Park Ranger Over Closed WWII Memorial.” 3 October 2013

“How do you look at them and … deny them access?” said Neugebauer. He, with most House Republicans, had voted early Sunday morning to pass a funding measure that would delay the Affordable Care Act, a vote that set up a showdown with the Senate and President Barack Obama. With the parties unable to agree on how to fund the federal government, non-essential government functions shut down Tuesday.

“It’s difficult,” responded the Park Service employee.

“Well, it should be difficult,” replied the congressman, who was carrying a small American flag in his breast pocket.

“It is difficult,” responded the Park Service employee. “I’m sorry, sir.”

“The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves,” the congressman said.

“I’m not ashamed,” replied the ranger.
