From a CNN interview with Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner:

BLITZER: How much longer will U.S. taxpayers have to shell out $2 billion a week or $3 billion a week as some now are suggesting the cost is going to endure? The loss in blood, the Americans who are killed every month, how much longer do you think this commitment, this military commitment is going to require?

BOEHNER: I think General Petraeus outlined it pretty clearly. We’re making success. We need to firm up those successes. We need to continue our effort here because, Wolf, long term, the investment that we’re making today will be a small price if we’re able to stop al Qaeda here, if we’re able to stabilize the Middle East, it’s not only going to be a small price for the near future, but think about the future for our kids and their kids.

"The loss in blood, the Americans that are killed every month..."

"A small price..."

"A small price..."

3,776 American soldiers dead.

28,000 American soldiers wounded.

What do the Republicans consider a meaningful price to pay?
