    Of Course it's an anti-Trump political stunt, but I like it IF it includes Congress and their staffs, and how much they get for office expenses.

    Let's all share the pain Congressman.

    Didn't Nancy Pelosi spend over $100, 000 dollars on liquor , food and partying just while flying back and forth to california?

    The honest ones are barely squeaking by. I'm not going to support that. Sure, the Pelosi's and Reid's and Waters of the crew get rich on their massive but hidden graft and corruption schemes over the years, but why penalize the honest guy that somehow manages to get elected to that kind of office?

    I'm all for it...IF the make it stick starting in 2020 BEFORE the election.

    This is a grandstand by a no-name Congresstard, just like that dork who used his precious speechifying time to call for Trump's impeachment (which doesn't come anywhere near the dork who used his time to commemorate Notorious BIG, or the dork who prattled "Tweet tweet tweet!".

    Democrats elect the most retarded representatives.

    Amazing to observe. It's like a shortbus exhibition. Sheila Jackson Lee, Hank Johnson, Maxine Waters, Keith Ellison, Nancy Pelosi..... Add all of their IQs together and sell for a penny a point and you'd barely have a dollar. Yet real people apparently vote for them. Probably all like TJ, nhboy and Sappy.

    no, but the bunch Gil mentioned are making their stupidity apparent in the press these days
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Sure, but it wouldn't be the first time political stunt legislation was accepted by the opposition and the authors had an oh-shet moment before deciding to vote down their own offering.
