On Tuesday, ThinkProgress, the blog for the progressive think tank Center for American Progress Action Fund, reported that the exclusive gym used by members of Congress was left open during the shutdown. The gym houses cardio machines and weight machines, along with a sauna, basketball courts, a swimming pool, and a steam room. But while the gym is open, towel service is UNAVAILABLE.
“There’s hardly anybody working down there,” Braley said. “There’s no towel service. So we’re doing our own laundry down there. And we pay a fee to belong to the House gym. So this is no different than if you’re working for an employer that offers a wellness program, you pay a fee to belong. That’s what we do there.”
