Bottled water is bad for the environment and not any healthier than tap; however, the United States Congress spends $760,000 a year on the stuff. Food & Water Watch reports:

Bottled water cost Congress $190,000 in the first quarter of 2010 alone! Rather than waste public dollars on a privatized resource, our members of Congress should support investment in the nation's drinking water infrastructure so that we all have access to safe, clean, affordable tap water.

Speaker Boehner proposes cutting this unnecessary expense.
