house Bill H.R. 4632

Eliminating First-Class Travel for Members of Congress

Argument in favor

You might wind up seated next to your congressional representative.

Not unless they pay for it themselves. I don't get first class accommodations from my employer, and I am the employer here.

If they want to fly first class, they should pat the difference!

Why are we concerned with this? Cut congresses pay, but what does this accomplish besides vengeance on a bad congress.

If the legislation is as simple as represented here, it is too simple. For domestic travel, coach class should be adequate for most travel. But long-haul international travel in which the traveler is expected to be sharp and ready to work on arrival or the next morning is different. This may not be a matter of luxury; more likely a provision for our representatives to work effectively.

    They can always pay for an upgrade.

    I agree. However, if this in anyway puts a Congressman or Senator in danger, it should not be passed. There are terrorists out there and idiots.
