Debbie Wasserman Shultz Starving Due To Savage Sequester Cuts On Subsidized Legislature Meals

Automatic federal cuts are bringing staffers to the brink of starvation, suggested Debbie Wasserman Schultz, at a recent House Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee hearing. Restaurants on the House side of Congress are increasing in cost so much that aides are being “priced out” of a good meal, she said. Just to clarify: An 8-ounce bowl of Ham and Bean soup at the Cannon  Office Building’s carry-out café costs $2. A gourmet wrap or sliced  bread  sandwich sells for about $5. And in the Longworth Building’s  sit-down  cafeteria, a serving of stuffed chicken, asparagus and mashed  potatoes sells  for about $7.

Savage Sequester cuts on subsidized government restaurants. Fail
