This year the Republican Congress and the Senate worked a TOTAL of 65 days. That's right 65. Now that sane people are in charge (Democrats) Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reed are actually going to have the House and Senate WORK 5 DAYS A WEEK.
Hopefully though they will accomplish more then the Republicans do. http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2006/11/15/14768.aspx
