And why should they worry about costs? “When specialists are needed, they are brought to the Capitol, often at no charge to members of Congress.”

Staffers at the clinic “described a culture centered on meeting the needs and whims of members of Congress, with almost no concern for cost.” Instead, our “public servants” pay about $500 a year.
