"Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-South Carolina, said he would return $160,000 to the federal government, or 12% of his office budget."U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is returning $600,000 to the U.S. Treasury, money he said he saved through frugally operating his Senate office in the past year.
Its the only budget I control.... Its not enough, but its a start, Paul said at a news conference Wednesday near Fourth and Liberty streets in downtown Louisville.
The $600,000, which amounts to about 17 percent of Pauls $3.5 million office budget, was in addition to about $500,000 he saved two years ago, his first year in the Senate, Paul said."
Ironically, one of the biggest opponents of Congress cutting its pay is one of the wealthiest, Nancy Pelosi."
