[. . .] Rangel, who chairs the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, frolics around in a 17-foot, 300-horsepower Cadillac DeVille paid for by you, the taxpayer. What’s it costing us? According to official House records, $777 a month.
Is it too much to ask that he lease this lavish car with his own money and not ours? He is worth between $566,000 and $1.2 million, after all, according to his official financial disclosure reports.
Rep. Rangel, what say you? Why should you drive a Cadillac paid for by tax dollars? He gave us his answer during our recent encounter: “Why don’t you mind your g——-d business?”
As if anyone needed a reminder, Rangel is in charge of the House Ways and Means committee. The Committee that drafts the tax code the rest of the Nation has to comply.
