We PAY them for this shoddy service!

Concerns Raised on Wider Spying Under New Law - New York Times
The dispute illustrates how lawmakers, in a frenetic, end-of-session scramble, passed legislation they may not have fully understood and may have given the administration more surveillance powers than it sought.
You know, I used to think members of Congress were some of the stupidest people on the planet. They pass stupid bills, say and do stupid things, and generally just appear to be stupid.

But I think they're stupid like a fox. They continually get re-elected, do nearly nothing, have fantastic benefits (perks, health coverage, and other amenities like junkets to foreign lands for free), take TONS of vacation, don't listen to their constituents, and we PAY THEM FOR IT.

Who's stupid now?
