The congressman was Randy Neugebauer, a Republican representing Texas. He confronted the ranger in the middle of a crowd of tourists as she was keeping most of the public out of the closed World War II memorial. ... "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.
Neugebauer also told the ranger she should be "ashamed" of the Park Service for keeping people out of a monument that was closed due to the shutdown he voted for. Holy shit.
