They Won’t Pay That

Best take down of the Republican meme of Obama’s “You didn’t build that.”: 

As for the delegates who stay healthy, we hope you’ll enjoy your stay and that your cheers of “we built this!” are worth the $50,307 you’ll have to refund the government for all the work it did to prepare the city on your behalf. And remember to set a little extra aside for tourist activities!

And if you’re inclined to understand the context of “You didn’t build that”, you can get it here. 

It’s kind of like the “conservative” pundit class and political class here in our humble city:  incessantly clamoring for rebuilding our infrastructrure and railing against public funding and public programs yet not wanting to pay a single cent from their own pocket as taxes are too high.

That I don’t get.
