Kid Rock versus the Republicans

Kid Rock supported Mitt Romney in the 2012 Presidential race and voted as a Republican.  He will not march in lockstep when members of the Party vote against his best interests and those of his fans.
The rocker, who threw his support behind Mitt Romney in the 2012 election, is now sounding off against the Republicans, who have supported various acts of legislation in Congress to raise concert ticket prices...
"That's one of the times I'm f---ing embarrassed to be a Republican," Rock tells Rolling Stone. "It's f---ing Republican lawmakers passing those laws, you dumba--es. They already did it in New York and they're trying to do it in Michigan. I've even called some of those guys to try and stop it."
Of course, he also directed his vitriol at Ticketmaster, for their use of service charges. "They're taking a f---ing $5 service charge," he says, also noting he's more of a Libertarian than a Republican these days. "It's 25 percent of the f---ing ticket! That's f---ed up, but I've beaten them up as much as I can. Then Walmart stepped in and agreed to charge just $20, and it includes parking."
Will you be attending his $20 concert?
