How's This for "Pork"

Ever wonder just what your Congressman/woman gets paid while you have to break your ass to make ends meet or get just a little bit ahead?

Well, here you go, and if this doesn't piss you off, nothing will!

The median wealth of a House member is $765,010... For a senator it’s $2.38 million. Yet, incredibly, they still enjoy all of this:

•$174,000 salary
•Free company car
•Free gas
•Free parking (even at airports)
•Free flights almost anywhere in the world
•Per diem travel allowance... up to $3,000 a trip
•A month’s paid vacation
•3-day work-weeks
•Free membership to a top-flight gym
•Pension plan and 401K plan
•Full retirement benefits (including up to 44% of their six figure salaries) at age 62
•Free top of the line health insurance with 10 plans to choose from
•Fully covered – even with pre-existing condition
