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

March 24, 2013

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.
