    ...This can be the only reasonable explanation as to why I find myself in support of...:gulp:...Nancy Pelosi. At least for now. My feeling after reading the article is, if this were an issue at any other time, say 6 or 8 months from now, she wouldn't have a problem.

    As far as I'm concerned, the can all join a gym and to hell with their "Wellness" or "Badness" center. Some days I still find myself confounded by the things we as taxpayers pay for. A gym? For House members only? And we paid for one for staffers too? WTF? Is it just me?

    Poor babies...such inconveniences, how do they survive?

    That type of agressive push toward useless funding of a private gym is what really pisses me off. Abercrombie is a tool.

    While I am pleased the Pelosi and others are against Abercrombie on this one, I think I would be happier if I believed that they were against him because $8 million dollars for a gym renovation is ridiculous...not because doing an $8 million (and we all know it would end up being more than that when it was all said and done) renovation would LOOK BAD right now.
