Legislative "Furniture"

For the last 1/2 hour I've been watching the Joint Committee on Legislative Administration on the Oregon Channel. They are debating on how many times they get to move their office furniture free of charge. I mean really... is this what our state government has come to?

Hello Representatives Richardson and Hannah. There are people starving in your districts. It almost looked like President Courtney was going to pop a blood vessel as he facilitated this waste of tax dollars. Are these people so poor that they have to fret over furniture moving costs. They all have on suits, which tells me they're ok.

I'm reminded here of Alan Iverson and his now famous press conference about "practice". These people need to figure out how they're going to fix our broken budget, and get over the whole furniture debate.
