They named it after the wrong person...

Delaware train station to get Vice President Joe Biden's name

Amtrak is hosting an open house Saturday for the newly renovated [Wilmington train] station, which it is renaming the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Railroad Station. ... The Wilmington Station, which is Amtrak's 12th busiest, just completed $37.7 million in renovations, $20 million of which came from the economic stimulus program Biden has been charged with overseeing.

Amtrak spent $5.7 million, DelDOT contributed $2 million and the Delaware congressional delegation secured another $10 million from transportation and appropriations bills.

Shouldn't they have named it after the American taxpayers? After all, virtually all of the money came from them.

Nahhh, the American taxpayers aren't really on good terms with this administration, and the administration returns the love in kind.
