Citizens of Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District: want to talk to your elected representative, Paul Ryan (R WI-1), during the Congressional Recess? It will cost you $15. If you live in Arizona and Ben Quale (R, AZ-3) is your congressman, you can ask him a question for $25. Rep. Chip Cravaack (R, MN-8) charged $10 a head to meet with his constituents in Duluth. Republicans won’t make corporations and millionaires pay their fair share of taxes, but they don’t blink at making voters pay to attend constituent meetings.
