"You Know It's Hard Out Here for a Member of Congress?" II

Sometimes you just cannot make these things up (Rep. John Fleming).  I don't think that a person who says that it takes $200,000 to "feed his family" is going to get much sympathy from the vast majority of Americans who will never see anything close to the $600,000 (and that does not include his salary as a Member of Congress) net personal income he enjoys.  Actually, now that I think of it, perhaps he could get his family to eat on his congressional salary, and then he can use the full $600,000 for the re-investments, and all of the other things he's said that he is pressed to pay for with those paltry earnings.
