Have you heard about US Congressman Charles Rangel’s wheels?Â Did you know that YOU are paying the lease?
Congressman Charles Rangel was recently seen getting out of his Cadillac DeVille, which he leases for $774 per month.Â Then there was Congressman Jose Serrano, getting out of his Buick LaCrosse, which he leases for $317 per month.Â And how about this one: Congressman Gregory Meeks was recently seen waiting for Congressman John Conyers to step out of Meeks’ Lexus LS460, which Meeks leases for $998 per month.
All those leases are picked up by taxpayers through a little-known program available only to members of the House of Representatives.
Rangel: “I could probably find something for …Â one of those red cars and then I think my constituents would say, ‘With all the money that he gets, this is the respect he shows us?'”
“..this is the respect HE shows US?”Â Â What a spit in the face of his consituents.
Hey, Congress…. don’t worry about it, really.Â Â I mean it is only my money you are wasting.Â Â We know you don’t care.
By sheer coincidence, all of the Members of Congress in the CBS News report seem to come from no particular political party at all.Â You’d have to dig past the article itself to find out they are all from the House Majority Party — The Democrats.
