I did a search and didn't find anything on this....but i thought i share!




Another sign of Congress out of touch? CNN did a three week investigation into Congressional expenditures and found about $6.1 million in bonuses paid to Congressional staffers. This comes at a time when many on the Hill are talking about cutting back yet some members of Congress said the bonus their staff got was justified.


Pretty much all the page says but there is a video posted on there of CNN's investigation.

Gotta love this and to think that congress knows how to spend money.

Too bad they didn't know how to budget it as well!
