Mutual Sacrifice, Indeed

More and more it's clear that George Orwell saw the Pelosi/Reid Congress.

At the same time that President Obama is wagging his finger at Wall Street for their year end bonuses and auto executives are being harassed for flying on private jets, the Democratic-led congress just gave each lawmaker an extra $93,000 in petty cash to spend.

More equal than others.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all defending this if it's true (Fox News is the only media outlet even mentioning it, as near as I can tell from a 3-minute google search), but let's put it in a little perspective. That's roughly $5 million dollars total, for all 535 members of Congress. $5 million is chump change compared to the bonuses that Wall Street companies were routinely handing out.
