Re: “State’s taxpayers pick up $5,600 dry-cleaning tab” (TNT, 1-30).
I’m really miffed. After Jan 1, I noted the tax deduction increase on my paycheck. Now it’s obvious why: The politicians want us to do their dirty laundry for them.
Our local “representatives” want us to pay for their tabs and they get a paycheck, too? If they have an office with a business phone line and artwork to make the office more “businesslike,” then they should claim it all on their own as a business expense, not expect us to pay for their tastes.
Will they sell the artwork when they’re no longer in office and return the cost back to the general fund?
