So WHO is paying for the hotel rooms for those Dems that abandoned their jobs?

Are they going to write them off as a "business" expense? Are the taxpayers paying for them on top of their salaries?

And do you think this will affect these Dems when reelection comes around? I can already see the campaign ads about abandoning their posts instead of choosing to vote one way or another!

    Or they stayed with friends.

    Since the people of the state (those protesting) seem to be behind them, I doubt it will matter when election time rolls around.

  • Oh it will matter. People have a short attention span and seem to change their minds all of the time. When the elections come around and the ads are rolling theyll change their opinion. It happens more often then not. All I know is I dont think we should pay for their hotels. If they have friends in the area then they should stay there. I know if I walked off the job my boss sure wouldnt pay for a hotel room.

  • If it got paid for by the state, it's very easily discovered. Most likely? The unions would be paying for them.
