Imagine you’re a legislator, and the expensive meals (subscription), heavy drinking (registration) and political squabbling (subscription) are taking a toll on you and your colleagues. You remember reading somewhere that physical fitness is important to your well-being.
Nah, that would require too much effort. Besides, then you might be over exercising those “fiscal restraint” muscles. This is a much better solution. Hopefully next year, someone will set aside money for a sauna, swimming pool, putting green and full spa services.
