How many Tax Payers Dollars Paid to Aides?
Do you know how many aides will be provided employment by your election of a person to fill a House or Senate seat? Do you that these aides are aided by another group of aides? See the Committee staffs, etc. to determine who aides the aides. No wonder it seems our elected officials don't listen to the voters who elect them.
The site has a tremendous amount of info regarding who is employed and the salaries paid.

This site can't even list our congressional representatives correctly- since when do we have a Ron Kind representing the Third?
I'd have NO confidence in the information!
2. Captain Weird, I suggest you check the site again. I did not see Ron Kind representing the 3rd. When I checked the list I saw Brian Baird.
3. Notified them of possible error at 0930, corrected before 1530. Anyone want to match that on an error found on a government URL.
Interesting information. Senators seem to have a staff of about 50 and spend about 1.1 million a year. Congressmen have about 18 staff.
So, Senate staff = 5,000+ people and COngressional staff = 7,800+ people, all not counting staff for the different committees.
If I read it right, Cantwell has more staff than Kennedy or Frist.
Looking at the banner ads, I doubt this site is an official government site.
5. SR, I'm sure you're right that this is not a govt site. I'm sure if one dug hard enough, one could find the info on govt sites. But I have looked at
a lot of home pages/official sites for Senators and never seen this info. I doubt very seriously that many of our elected officials want the public to know, just how helpers are required, so that they can do so little.
