There are some things that can only emanate from Congress.  This, from the Wall Street Journal:

How much does it cost for a member of Congress to change a light bulb?

Apparently, it costs $39.

An election-spending report for former Rep. Chris Shays (R., Conn.) shows that the former lawmaker was billed that amount to have a light bulb changed in his campaign office.

Money just works like magic within the dome of the Capitol!
