Announcing the formation of the Rent is Too Damn High Caucus of the Libertarian Party

The idea for the Rent is Too Damn High Caucus started during a discussion on IPR. The purpose of the caucus is "to try getting the LP HQ moved out of the Watergate & into a cheaper office." The caucus may also look into other ways the LP can save money and/or more efficiently use member dues & donations.

According to a 2009 article on IPR "the LNC pays $10,928.89 a month ($131,146.68/year) for office space. To put this into some perspective, a sustaining member pays $25.00 annually for their membership; it takes over 437 sustaining members a month to pay the rent on our Washington, D.C office. If you are a sustaining member, it took you and 5,245 others to pay the rent on our national office in 2009."
