About one-quarter of the incoming members of the House of Representatives plan to crash on couches on Capitol Hill. Some will sleep next to their desks to show their distaste for government fiscal excess, while others simply want to be really close to work. One roommate situation we found interesting: Soon-to-be Sen. Rand Paul's new sleeping arrangements. Turns out the Kentucky Republican will crash at the condo of his father, Ron, in Virginia when Congress is in session. Whether his decision to bunk up with Dad is to make a statement about government spending or just to have some quality time, either way the junior Paul will pinch some pennies.
