Republican Congressmen Want Government Housing Aid To Afford Housing in Washington

Expect HUD Sec. Ben Carson to Try and Help – Part of the Welfare for the Rich Campaign

Since it is not April Fool’s Day one must assume that a Republican Congressman’s begging for the government housing aid is not a joke.

On his way out of Congress, Rep. Jason Chaffetz gave many District residents another reason to gripe Tuesday when he called for members of Congress to receive a housing stipend of up to $30,000 a year.
Chaffetz (R-Utah), who chaired the committee that has oversight of the nation’s capital, said federal lawmakers have trouble stretching their $174,000 salaries to cover housing in Washington, which he called “one of the most expensive places in the world,” and homes in their congressional districts.

Conservatives have often been portrayed as the whiniest of politicians.  And of course if low income families said they should get $30 k a year for housing well we know who would be flooding Fox News denigrating the freeloading worthless bastards that take tax dollars from the rich to support their shiftless life style.  Well conservatives meet a worthless bastard who is one of you.
