This Really Ought to Get You Mad!!
The question: Are House Members collecting Per Diem when they take those 5-day weekends?
Thanks to this interview with State Representative Tony Tinderholt, we have our answer, and you're not going to like it one bit.
Per Representative Tinderholt: House Members have been gone 34 days now at $221 a day.
That means we've wasted $1,127,100 taxpayer dollars on per diem for them when they're not in the place that they're getting paid to be at work.
I have a problem with that. Representative Tony Tinderholt has a problem with that. Do you have a problem with that? Do your friends have a problem with that, or is it just me? I'd really like to know.
