You pay big $$ for Congess' cars

Postby RugbyD » Tue Mar 14, 2006 5:23 pm

Here is a list of members of congress that used public funds to lease cars. I can see both sides of the argument that say they should or shouldn't be allowed to do this, but if you look at the numbers you'll see some leases that come out to huge $/month. Feel free to express your displeasure to them if you think your rep deserves it.

I kinda feel stoopid, I didn't know the virgin islands had representation in congress.

Also, it's good to see that no VA rep had any vehicles listed :-o :-o ;-D

I don't think it's a big deal that we comp their vehicles, as long as they are used for 'business,' but in this age of fuel conservation and concern about emissions, why are there so many SUVs?
