Congressman Goes on a $2,500 Burrito Binge



Questions over the way Congress spends its money is hardly a new topic for discussion, but a recent $2,500 single-day burrito party purchased by House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy has brought food-spending to the spotlight. Apparently a bunch of our nation’s leaders go big when getting their grub on courtesy of American tax dollars. In an article reported by the NY Daily News, House Speaker John Boehner’s office took the cake spending $11,225 on food and drink, while Qdoba-loving Rep. McCarthy racked up a cool $9,789 in the last three months alone. Though going big might be the American way, $2,000 on coffee in only three months seems like someone is majorly over-caffeinating. Hope they at least tapped into free queso Mondays.
