Four hundred and thirty-six members of the House of Representatives and 100 senators are each paid a base salary of $174,000 (don’t let’s even discuss their health care benefits). Additionally taxpayers pay staff salaries for each House member and senator well in excess of $500,000. It costs taxpayers well over two million dollars per day that Congress is in session.
Where is the outrage by Republicans at the astonishing waste of taxpayer money to have Congress spend yet more time writing and passing legislation because the Republican Party is unable to stop itself from deliberating misleading American voters?
