Is your Congressman on the list below? {UPDATED}

Hint: if he or she's a Democrat, the answer's probably "Yes."

{Updated: Both Jeff and myself (and I confirmed with a phone call) have been notified that Rep Blunt had been attending a lunch hosted by Paul Weyrich; that he had had no more than 15 or 30 minutes’ notice; that this is not the first time that this sort of thing has happened; and that he would have voted against adjournment if he had been able to get there. I accept this explanation, and have removed him from the list. – Moe Lane}

Consider that the next time you ask yourself, How much does one vote matter, anyway?
