Sen. Joni Ernst announced Tuesday she plans to introduce the ‘Squeal’ Act to cut expenditures for lawmakers
“It is the Stop Questionable, Unnecessary and Excessive Allowances for Legislators Act. There exists on the books a tax deduction, specifically for members of Congress. They can deduct up to $3,000 dollars of expenses from their taxes. Regular people out there can’t apply for this, only legislators,” Ms. Ernst, Iowa Republican, said on Fox News.
