    U.S. Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), expressed dismay:
    "When I hear about leaders of charities being provided a $300,000 Bentley to drive around in, my fear is that it's the taxpayers who subsidize this charity who are really being taken for a ride,"








    Reminds me of the old joke where three priests are trying to decided how much of the donations to give to God.

    They draw a circle on the ground. First priest says - we throw the money in the air, and whatever lands outside the circle god keeps. Second priest says no, we throw the money in the air and whatever lands inside the circle, god keeps.

    The third priests says: better yet, let's throw the money in the air, and whatever god wants, he keeps...

    They did not vote a themselves a pay raise, they did not vote to stop the built in COLA.. it has the same result, but a different connotation.

    OTOH this is about religious ministries not about Congress... keep changing the subject, a rightie technique we are all familiar with.
