Reps. Marty Meehan and Richard Neal apparently split the rent on a cheerful, swingin' party pad in the District:

"We don't have a kitchen table," said Rep. Marty Meehan, a Lowell Democrat who sleeps in a 1970s-era bed in the one-bedroom apartment he shares with Rep. Richard Neal, D-Springfield. "The refrigerator is empty."

Meehan, purported to be the neat one who occupies the bedroom, emphasized that Neal sleeps in a different and perhaps older hand-me-down bed in the living room. "It's kind of a bed," explained Meehan, noting that it once lurked in former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neill's Washington pad decades ago.
Neal is older and more senior than Meehan; how come he gets stuck being The Guy on the Couch?

Seriously, though: can we please pay these people more?
