Pelosi: let them eat cake

Speaker Pelosi decided to take the House cafeteria gourmet and, according to Josephine Hearn at Politico, the prices are now to the point where the staff can't afford it:
“It’s a big jump from high school cafeteria to fancy-pants gourmet. I just wish my pay improved,” said Caryn Schenewerk, a staffer for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

A fruit and cheese side dish with two small wedges of brie and cheddar, six grapes, two saltines and one strawberry cost $4.95, for example.
