Dolittle Congress

Below, I made a reference to the "Do little" Congress while discussing Rep. Dolittle of California. I meant to provide a link to my reference. I simply forgot as I had some things that needed to be done and I wasn't going to spend much time on line today. Here's the link and the clip:
The House schedule for 2006, the second session of the 109th Congress, has a grand total of 71 days when votes are scheduled to take place, along with an additional 26 when no votes will occur before 6:30 p.m. The total of 97 calendar days, counted generously, is the smallest number in 60 years and the days of what Harry Truman derided as that "do-nothing 80th Congress."
