Renovating Private Parking Garages for U.S. House Will Cost Taxpayers $156,322 Per Congressman

This is the type of thing that needs getting done in a time of extreme need with Americans losing jobs left and right, seeing century old corporations being sandbagged by an out of control president who doesn't know what the hell he's doing, just like the also out of control congress had hoped and planned for?

The kind of project at the top of their things to do lists' there on "Crapitol" Hill as I call it, are one's like this one making sure they and their staffs have a nice new cozy place to park their expensive taxpayer and lobbyists funded cars each day, with this little project chiming in to the tune of $156,322 per congressional crook at a total of 700 plus million dollars if you can believe that one.

And that's not to build the place from scratch, but just to renovate an already standing and functioning structure while the roads we all drive on are in worse shape then the damn Oregon trail in most parts of the country......swell.

CNSNews.com - "Washington (CNSNews.com) – As it is considering legislation that would cap carbon emssions and significanly increase energy prices of U.S. consumers in the name of controlling global warming, the U.S. House of Representatives is also considering spending $68 million to renovate two parking garages that are used exclusively by members of Congress and their staff.

Given that there are only 435 members of the House, the renovation of these exclusive garages would cost $156,322 per congressmen.

The garages are just south of the House office buildings that form part of the complex surrounding the U.S. Capitol. They are also adjacent to a station of the Washington Metro subway system that members of Congress and their staff could use to get to work if they did not want to drive a car and emit carbon into the atmosphere.

Terrell Dorn, the director of physical infrastructure issues for the Government Accountability Office (GAO), on May 6, testified before the House Committee on House Administration about plans by the Architect of the Capitol (AOC) to renovate the East and West garages, which serve several House buildings.

Approximately $38 million of the request is attached to a project to overhaul the Cannon House Office Building at an overall cost of $753 m" continued
