Jason Chaffetz: Congress Would Be Happier With $2500/Month Housing Allowance | Crooks and Liars
"While average Americans wait to see if they will have health insurance next month, "retiring" member of Congress and "I can't investigate Hillary Clinton so bye" Republican Jason Chaffetz has a helpful suggestion as the door hits his buttocks. The taxpayers should give each member of Congress $2500 a MONTH for housing in Washington DC! Chaffetz doesn't think there's an environment for a congressional pay raise, but this is the equivalent of a $30,000 a year raise. $30,000 is nearly double what is considered "the poverty line," you know, what people who will LOSE THEIR OBAMACARE make in a year."
