Honest-to-God - - you can't make this stuff up.
Assembly Republicans are considering raising how much the 99 members of their chamber can claim for expenses...The per diem is not taxed, by the way, and legislators can claim it for simply stopping in at the Capitol and, say, check the mail - - even if there is no session and they have zero meetings.
Most lawmakers receive $88 a day when they come to the Capitol to cover hotels and meals. Those who live in or close to Madison receive half that amount.
How out-of-touch and arrogant can this bunch get?
