    Statement of Disbursements - United States House of Representatives, 112th Congress, 1st Session

    Since 2009 the SOD has been published online to increase governmental transparency and accountability. (thanks Obama)
    As a result of a new House financial system, all SODs from the fourth quarter of 2010 onward will display new transaction codes while maintaining the same data transparency as before. These codes (AP for Accounts Payable; AR for Accounts Receivable and GL for General Ledger) will replace all previously used SOD transaction codes. More »


    Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN): $25,580.84
    Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI): $24,525.00
    Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX): $10,997.45
    Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO): $20,978.07
    Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH): $4,889.76
    Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS): $8,848.00
    Rep. Steve Womack (R-AR): $10,746.59
    TOTAL: $106,643

    Many of the vehicles go beyond a standard sedan. For example, Cravaack is charging taxpayers more than $1,000 a month to pay the lease on his 2011 Chevy Equinox, a crossover SUV with all-wheel drive.

    Wow. And they held America hostage on "fiscal conservatism".

    In truth, I don't give a shit. Equinoxes are relatively cheap vehicles that get fairly OK gas mileage. But it does kind if fly in the face of their "we consider public service a SERVICE to the public, not to ourselves" thing. If they really felt that way....they're making enough money to buy their own dammed cars...but really? It's small potatoes.

    So what did they actually spend the money on? Because those are fairly good prices on cars.

    Are they renting? Buying on behalf of the government? leasing?

    Because depending on how they are spending the money, that could be a reasonable price.

    From the House.gov site:
    Vehicle Leases - United States House of Representatives, 112th Congress, 1st Session
    Here it is:
    Federal Vehicle Acquisition | Green Vehicle Guide | US EPA
    Search results for Rep. Chip Cravaack's LEASED Chevy Equinox:
    Advanced Search | Green Vehicle Guide | US EPA

    According to the EPA site, a Chevy Equinox scores a 6.

    What's the OP's f*ckin' problem?

    I'll tell you what his problem is: He's the typical lazy assed Liberal who lives off of being spoon fed propaganda. He's a lazy Liberal who can't even do his own research THAT'S what his problem is.

    So blind with partisan hatred that he doesn't even see that he's being played.

    "Helicopter" Ben Bernanke loaned out 7.7 Trillion dollars to foreign Banks and what does rderp get upset about? What he's TOLD to get upset about THAT'S what!

    What a f*ckin' moran!
