54 ObamaCare Repeal Votes! Einstein's Definition of Insanity?

The House of Representatives wastes millions with each repeal the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) vote. Unlike the 113th Congress, Boehner and his elected political (Koch and Big Pharma) operatives have a new path to wasting our tax dollars. The US Senate is now the domain of a Republican majority thanks to non-voters in the 2014 midterms.

We now have a US Congress lead and occupied by people who are beholding to constituents who are vehemently anti-ACA. Since dark money talks in US politics, the ACA will be a target of the 114th Congress and US Senate as long as Obama is president (and probably well beyond). The Republicans in Congress are so preoccupied with "gifting" their money brokers, they callously spend from $1.43 million to $1.6 million per repeal vote. If we take the higher figure, the total expenditure for the repeal votes exceeds $89 million. How about rounding to $90 million USD on votes that will never pass a White House Veto.

The House vote was enacted during the current ACA Open Enrollment period. As enrollment numbers increase and the February 15th deadline nears, the 56th repeal vote seems all the more ridiculous.
