Your Tax Dollars at work.

WCBS News sheds some much needed light at how your tax dollars are being spent by members of Congress:

You may not realize it, but members of the House of Representatives can lease a car and have it paid for by you -- the taxpayer. And it's not just the car, but gas, registration, insurance … the works.
...
[democrat] Congressman Charles Rangel was recently seen getting out of his Cadillac DeVille, which he leases for $774 per month. Then there was [democrat] Congressman Jose Serrano, getting out of his Buick LaCrosse, which he leases for $317 per month. And how about this one: [democrat] Congressman Gregory Meeks was recently seen waiting for [democrat] Congressman John Conyers to step out of Meeks' Lexus LS460, which Meeks leases for $998 per month.

WCBS didn't identify the party of the congressmen in article. Not surprisingly, they are all democrats living large at the tax payer's expense.
