Video Break: GOP Rep. John Fleming – the Congressman’s just getting by on $400K

Bring out the tiniest of violins. Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) is a victim of class warfare because, after taxes, he only has $400K left over to feed his family. Whoops! He’s even landing on a softer pile of cash – the $400K is AFTER he’s fed his kids.

OK, even if his family is Duggar-sized, I think he could get by on less than $400K. Even adjusted for inflation, all 14 of my maternal grandparents’ kids were fed on a lot less during The Great Depression. (My mom is third from the right in the back row.)
