At least it said "among" the highest, which they are. They corrected travel versus per diem also for Cruz.

"Less than one hour ago, the Washington Post published a story by Philip Bump about expensive Senate offices with stats from the Sunlight Foundation.

The original headline was clearly skewed against Republicans.

It reads: “Cruz, Rubio among the most expensive Senate offices.”

But actually, the top two most expensive offices belong to California Democrats Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein with Boxer being in the lead."


For Rubio and Cruz to be that close to the top of the group raises questions. For me, their budgets for staffing and travel is disgusting, always has been. Those are some pretty huge budget numbers for each senator.

And their budgets will go higher every year, as they guard taxpayer money like it was their own.
