What does it cost for The United States Congress to be in session for a single day? I recently heard a quote of $30 million, but did not see any supporting facts to back it up.

I am wondering about the costs incurred when Congress wastes time voting on something that they know will never make it all the way through to being signed into law.

What would the total be taking into account their collective salaries, their staff, admin support, facilities, etc.?

This claim is made a facebook wall photo on the Democratic Party profile enter image description here
