    If they're pulling the occasional all nighter, that's ok. If they're actually living there, they should pay some kind of rent.

    Tell ya what...that traffic alone would be enough to convince me to crash in my office frequently, depending on obligations on-site.

    That, coupled with the cost of lodging in the area, makes it a smart choice.

    I think housing should be provided for them in DC since they are required to work both there and in their home district. I think we should either give them a modest housing stipend on par with what we give our military members living in the area or provide some sort of congressional dormitory.

    Like those divorced men's apt complexes they show on TV...they'll be grateful to be back in the Capitol working!

    Seems like such a small issue for the CBC to get riled up about. There must be something else to it....

    Rather hollow isn't it. Have you seen the cost of real estate in DC? Congress critters have homes, families, children etc. and even though they make a good wage it is impossible for many to maintain two homes. Eating out can get real expensive too even in the cafeterias so they have hotplates, coffee makers, mini fridges and microwaves to prepare quick bites. Normally they have a storage room off from their office that becomes their closet, mini kitchen and a place to store their bedding. They use the shower facilities in the gym. Their dirty laundry goes home with them replenished with clean along with a few cans of soup, snacks, coffee, tea, cereal etc. for the coming week.

    I don't see a darn thing wrong with it. If the Democrats want to get serious about ethics maybe they should deal with the Anwan scandal they don't want to talk about.

    Feel free to send your tax return to the "shelter a politician" program. Otherwise, they can pay for it themselves, they make enough off the taxpayers.

    With all of the money that they spend applying for the job I am sure that they knew what the job entails. If they don't like the job then they can quit.
