The latest financial disclosures from the House of Representatives show that Democratic members have outspent their republican colleagues – with your tax dollars – by two to one, in one strange category. Rental cars.
The Chief Administrative Officer of the House reported that this perk for lawmakers was heavily utilized (some may say “abused”) by House Democrats to the tune of $65,669 when compared to Republican’s small sum of $29,994. 19 Republicans expensed their leases during the third quarter while 34 Democrats availed themselves of the perk.
According to the data, compared to the year before this one, Democrats went on to spend by 2 to 1 ratio in the last two quarters than the Republicans, however, the gap was much smaller in the two quarters before these. Regardless, Democrats still spent massively more than Republicans, despite having 45 additional members in the House.
