1. I didn't realize that symbolic house votes were so expensive,

or that politicians were paid by the hour or by the vote.

3. The aren't but

you can break it all down by the time they spend in session and the total salary of all the Representatives, plus the cost of administrative staff, building staff, energy to run the House floor, etc. They could be doing actual REAL work on REAL issues.....but no, not this House, they don't want to do anything. What was it last year???...a total of 32 weeks in session, or something like that!

4. Real work on real issues?

We're talking about the repukes here. I'd rather have them taking symbolic votes than actually working on their agenda.
