Jun 28 - Jason Chaffetz says he partly quit congress because he cant afford two houses
 

 
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged Wednesday that money was "partly" responsible for his decision to leave Congress.

"I mean, look, we're paid a very handsome salary, but our home is in Utah. I didn't move to Washington, D.C. I sleep in a cot in my office," Chaffetz said on Fox News.

"And faced with another 100 to 200 nights a year where my wife's by herself in Utah and I'm in a cot in Washington, D.C. – as nice as the salary is – I can't afford to have two places and have a quality of life I'd like to have at this point," he said.

Chaffetz, in an interview with The Hill this week before he leaves Congress, called for lawmakers to receive a $2,500 monthly stipend to help them cover the cost of housing in D.C.

That proposal suggested that financial concerns were part of the Utah Republican's decision to leave Congress at the end of June, more than a year before his term is set to expire.

By giving lawmakers a housing stipend, he said Wednesday, lawmakers might not feel obligated to return to their states or districts every weekend and could maintain a higher quality of life.

But as it stands, he said, serving in Congress is a "rich man's game."

"If you're not a multimillionaire, you got dozens and dozens of us that can't afford two mortgages, kids in college and other types of things," he said. "It's very expensive in Washington, D.C."

After leaving Congress on Friday, Chaffetz is set to become a contributor for Fox News, which the network officially announced on Wednesday.

Chaffetz says he plans to write a book and do some consulting work.

Just a reminder on what this piece of sh*t thinks on raising the minimum wage...


And healthcare...



We can't raise minimum wage because it makes "inner city kids lazy" but this piece of sh*t thinks he deserves an EXTRA 30k a year to buy an extra house. fu*k right the hell off. This what you support when you support these pieces of sh*t and Im talking about the Republic*nts AND the establishment Dems.

Yup now he can be with his family and pay less in bills , which is what article says

Sounds fairly responsible if u ask me
i don't know enough about his financial life to call him responsible especially considering he couldn't afford $12,000 a year for rent while making $175,000

or why not get a congressional roommate why did none of the other 4 utah congressional workers offer him someplace to sleep?

he seems out of touch with what decisions poor americans make everyday

Cost of living is pretty bad in DC tbh and 2500 a month for housing doesn't get you far there. Yes, this is hypocritical though

Millions of Americans don't have to pay for two forms of living though or have the same workload as him. Honestly, he does have a point. Most Congressman, to my knowledge, don't bring their families to DC and they normally stay in their district. Even if they did move to DC, that would be incredibly costly. It's expensive. I'm pretty sure the only reason why this is a thread is because he's a republican. I don't even agree that they should get a stipend, but he still has a point.

I see political office as doing a service to your country not a job to get rich

110k in DC doesn't get you rich, but yes, I agree it is a service. A service that can't pay for living expenses

Fiscally responsible family man

Yes, fiscally responsible is a man that makes 100K+ a year (plus all the sh*t he gets from "donors") but says he "needs" an extra 30K a year so he can pay for "rent" in DC (I guess he cant be like other congressman and live OUTSIDE of D.C. and commute?) while saying that regular people are too lazy to deserve more than $7.25 per hour. fu*k off you idiot.

$110,000 can pay living expenses maybe not the ones he's accustomed to but those are the sacrifices he signed up for

Exactly so he left and gave his two cents on his way out

And y'all out here counting his pockets calling him a scum bag for it

i never called him a scumbag but i am judging his pockets because he's judging minimum wage workers pockets and people who can't afford healthcare

the $110,000 congressional salary

$895 two bedroom furnished apartment in arlington VA


$1000 decent car for the commute


moderate food cost $70 a month for a single male


he average household spends about $500 on dry cleaning per year


it's all very plausible
