Rep. Ben Quayle

A Penny For Your Thoughts? Better Make It $35

"Pay-to-say meetings?" Want to ask a question of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.)? That'll be $15. Maybe you want to ask freshman Congressman Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.) about his stance on the deficit reduction committee? I hope you've got $35 to spare. That's right, during this congressional summer recess when our elected representatives head back to their districts to presumably meet with constituents, these Members, and countless others like them, are holding town hall meetings. But you've got to pony up to get in.
