It is a NIMBY problem. Everyone wants the government to cut spending
but not on the things they care about. They want more spending on
things in their area. You never see protesters showing up in great
numbers at a ribbon cutting.
A bunch of fake outrage stopped the meetings. Protesters who claimed
to be just average folks but turned out to be party officials made the
meetings stop. This did nothing to reduce spending. It just cut off
communication with the public. It added noise an no signal. The reps
know that those folks yelling
at the meetings were bussed in for the purpose.
The right to act and speak is more fundamental than the right to own.
This is why there is no right to own another person.

The producers are very angry at government overspending.
But we have to many sucking the tit probably don't care.

On which point?
The folks showing up at the health care town-halls were bussed in
and were misrepresenting themselves. There was video of the
buses and several cases where they followed up and proved that
they were in fact party operatives.
People may be angery at the government for spending too much
but very few are willing to have the spending on their pet things
