    Mr. Boehner admitted that the only reason he was holding another vote on the ACA was to give the new House members the ability to proclaim, while campaigning, that they, personally, had voted against it.  

    So, shouldn't the Republican Party, or at least the new members' campaign funds, be billed for the cost of running Congress for the hours it takes to have yet another vote that all acknowledge will go nowhere?  

    And, like all good catering halls, shouldn't there be a 10% or more mark-up for use of the facility?  When you rent a venue for a reception, for instance, you don't just pay for the cost of air conditioning, food, wait-staff, janitors, amortization of furniture costs and so on, you also pay a premium that goes directly to the venue's owner, as profit on the owner's investment.  

    It is time for Mr. Boehner and/or the Republicans to reimburse the taxpayers to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars for using our Halls of Congress for their campaign events.  They owe us.  

    Or, on the other hand, since it is supposedly illegal for them to use their offices for fund-raising purposes, couldn't we just throw all of them in jail?
