Seems like the media are once again twisting the facts. For the record, our office stayed under budget for the two years I served. I voted to cut our Congressional MRA, never had taxpayer dollars rent me a car, and never flew first class. As a Member of Congress, I made the decision to allocate funds to those who had been working twice as hard from the funds of those staff positions we had cut, and we continued to meet our constituent requirements. Anyone got a problem with my decision to reduce staff to increase efficiency and reward folks on merit, come see me. Anyone wants to challenge my record on maintaining the highest standard of fiscal responsibility and stewardship of the American taxpayer dollar in our Congressional office, step right up.
