You are off base. Our government is charged with providing services to the people. Those services include things like health care, roads, education, police, and fire protection. It is not part of governments mandate to subsidize entertainment ventures.
It's not about who gets what they want it's about doing the task they've been assigned in the constitution without getting into debt and causing them to fail at providing health care or adequate roads or enough schools. There is no hypocrisy.
