House of Representatives - New TVs

Here is a great example of waste we found on the very first day of the session. In a downturn budget year, somehow all of the members of the House found themselves with new 21" 720p HD TVs in their offices. You can see the TV I brought in from home off to the side, so I clearly don't need a new TV. I can't buy the new one myself, and I can't sell it and no one will take it back when I try and return it, and none will tell me who bought it! So I'm stuck with a travesty of an unconscionable waste of money in my office that I didn't authorize. -Rep. John Dougall
