“This $134.4 million, or 21 percent, boost over the previous fiscal year marks the largest increase in the MRA appropriation since it was authorized in 1996, according to a bill summary by the House Appropriations Committee,” Roll Call reports:
As part of the $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill released Wednesday, the $5.9 billion fiscal 2022 Legislative Branch funding portion would substantially boost the office budgets of House members to pay staff more and seeks to enable the Capitol Police department to hire more officers.
It’s so nice to see these Congresscritters paying themselves more, along with the police force that murdered four unarmed Americans peacefully protesting on January 6th, 2021. It always gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside when I see the wicked prosper.
The Senate would get $1.1 billion for salaries and operations. The bill provides $7 million for Senate intern pay. House operations would receive $1.7 billion.
In a time when average, everyday Americans are facing record price increases while also never having worse employment opportunities, the murderous Capitol Hill Police Force and the parasites in congress make sure that they’re taken care of.
