Jason Chaffetz thinks it's too costly to stay in DC so he wants aid from taxpayers. Cenk Uygur and also Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, inform you just how much he's requesting for. Tell us what you believe in the remark area below.

" Simply days before he surrenders from Congress, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) claimed Monday that Residence as well as Senate legislators ought to get a $2,500 each month housing allocation– something he discussed would aid reduce real estate expenses for members that can't afford 2 mortgages or rents.

" I really do think Congress would certainly be better served if there was a housing allocation for members of Congress," Chaffetz told Capital in a meeting in his Capitol workplace, where he rests whenever he remains in Washington. "In today's climate, no one's going to recommend or vote for a pay raising. However you should not have to be among the wealthiest of Americans to offer correctly in Congress."

The comments from the fifth-term legislator recommend that financial factors to consider were a big component of his shock statement in April that he was stepping down from Congress and also relinquishing his Oversight Board gavel.
Chaffetz's kid will certainly be attending law institution at the University of Virginia, and his older child goes to university in Utah. His more youthful daughter will be going to college in a few years."

      Just like “snowflake” you cant use an insult immediately after its used against you. Then it just looks like projection. This isnt the playground anymore.

    • Posted by Trevor Scott, at Reply

      Aaron565pwns I think you replied to the wrong comment

    • Posted by Admiral Smelling, at Reply

      @Aaron565pwns — Who’s the snowflake? Sissy-boy Chaffetz can’t make it on 200 grand a year and has to cry to the government for a hand-out? Typical Republican chicken-hawk.

    It’s unconstitutional for congress to give itself a raise. End of story.

      Because those s o bs aren’t happy with a 170k a year salary, right? You’re right, they’re sickening!

    • Posted by Colin Silver, at Reply

      Actually, I believe they can; it just takes effect in the next term.

    Chaffetz should choose btwn housing and a cell phone

    • Posted by Thomas Smith, at Reply

      ADrew Yes. If he didn’t buy one iPhone, he could afford a townhouse in D.C. for a year!

    • Posted by dlevitt0508, at Reply

      That wouldn’t help him, we pay for his cell phone too.

    • Posted by djwaglmuffin, at Reply

      Or a fridge. Or an air conditioner. Or a microwave. Or (__insert some arbitrary household item here__)

      It’s always like that. Banksters get bailed-out while common people go bankrupt.

    • Posted by sailormanariel, at Reply

      Doesn’t he consider the bribes he receives from the big donors a stipend?

      mostly considers bribes retirement ( 401K ) & vacation fund

    • Posted by Admiral Smelling, at Reply

      @Humanguillotine — Can’t be any clearer. Inner-party members get all the perks.

    “Can’t afford two rents or mortgages.”

    Alot of people can’t afford one.
    These are the same people you are screwing over.
    Why do these people who *need* things like this “not deserve it, they should just work harder,” yet you think it’s fine for someone like you, who has accepted 414,800$ from large donors from 2016 to Now, to ask for it.

    • Posted by OutlawRebel117, at Reply

      Braden Wilson Republican politicians think they’re h only ones who work hard, everyone else is just a lazy bum.

    • Posted by Peter Aguilar, at Reply

      Perhaps he should get a 2nd job, that’s what people do when they have trouble making ends meet. I heard McDonalds have some outstanding minimum-wage opportunities available.

    I saw a remark by a bigot today that seems to apply to this story. if you can’t afford to take care of your kids, you shouldn’t have them. 😡

    • Posted by Braden Wilson, at Reply

      And yet, people like Chaffetz still want to criminalize abortion.

  11. Posted by Cave Beasts, at Reply

    They are WELFARE QUEENS that want taxpayers to subsidize their lifestyle ! Republicans should relocate for more affordable living πŸ™‚

    • Posted by Steven Anchundia, at Reply

      Their lifestyle that they can afford with large amounts of cash so large that they can burn a mansion every week and build a new one and crash and when their Ferrari break down they don’t take it to a mechanic they buy a new one and throw the old one at a junk yard their such welfare queen

      Cave Beasts give him a FEMA trailer.

    if the Republican constituents were smart they vote him out completely

    • Posted by Trevor Scott, at Reply

      Wendell Wright Utah is full of idiotas.

  13. Posted by rocky19421, at Reply

    Maybe they should get a second job instead of asking for “freebies and hand outs”!….. That’s always the condescending advice the wealthy give to us poor paycheck-to-paycheck schmucks….

    • Posted by Malachi Owens, at Reply

      That’s just republicans talking point

  14. Posted by At1WithMe, at Reply

    Congress needs to make minimum wage.

    • Posted by bro guy, at Reply

      all elected officials should make the median wage of the people they represent, watch how fast they try to increase the quality of life for their people then.

    • Posted by Chris M, at Reply

      +bro guy – I like this idea! There’s something that should be passed into law!

  15. Posted by Fabricio Larios, at Reply

    This fucker has the audacity to ask for a stipend?
    This guy told Americans to forgo the new iPhone to afford healthcare.
    He is just living beyond his means!

    Tell your wife to get a JOB Jason.

    • Posted by Zelda Williams, at Reply

      Of Woodbridge and Hedgely excellent idea!

    • Posted by Admiral Smelling, at Reply

      Better yet, make his kids work.

  17. Posted by William Rice, at Reply

    Oh here’s an Idea . Instead of that stipend for congress . How about we take that money and build some complexes for congress to the exact same standard as Those getting federal or state assistance below the poverty line for housing , And make ALL of congress live in those buildings while in DC . With no option to allow them to ever change the standard . Since republicans just love their preemption laws .

    • Posted by Chris Hakala, at Reply

      Even better let’s also tie their salary to the median wage and bar them from investing in the stock market during their term.
