New Dress Code for Congress

Given the Supreme Court decision opening unlimited corporate and union money for candidates, Congress will modernize its dress code. Senators and Representatives are encouraged to line up their sponsors. The size of each patch will be determined by the size of the contribution.

Of course, taxpayers will bear the burden of design and maintenance of new Congressional apparel. Funds will be deducted from the paltry few health care reform plans remaining.

The side benefit of a fire suit comes when angry citizens resort to "tarring and feathering" or attempt to burn a Congressman "not in effigy."

This suit could be Rep. Eric Cantor's (R-VA). He received $10,000 from DuPont's PAC. Might it be Rep. Tim Ryan's (D-OH)? He got $10,000 from Goodyear's PAC. Wear those corporate stripes proudly.
