    I want a site/page where one can get an honest estimate of the cost of these sorts of congressional diversions.  Something in the form of:

    congresscosts.org sez that the Benghazi witchhunt has cost the taxpayers 147 million in salaries alone!
    For extra value it should give the cost in Ns of cost spent on non-moronic efforts; cancer research, trips to the moon, medicare, ACA...

      to mention those costs as often as possible.  i.e: "While the senator from Texas has been here talking about gun control and fabricating facts to get headlines I would like the record to note that another $75,000 dollars of taxpayer dollars just went down the drain.  Four soldiers are still tragically deceased and no one in Washington will talk about a jobs bill"  I appear in front of a judge who has an old fashioned hourglass that he keeps on the bench and turns over when there is a break.  Everyone knows when their 15 min. is over.  We should keep one on the bench that represents a million dollars every time it has to be turned over.  At the end of the day more people would be watching the hourglass than the hearing.
