Do Nothing!

In an article about the minimum-wage hike being linked to the "death tax" (Or, as I think we ought to start calling it, the Paris Hilton Tax) was this little gem:
If the House sticks to its schedule, it will have worked 84 days this year when votes were scheduled, 26 fewer than the Congress that President Harry S. Truman labeled "do-nothing" during his come-from-behind 1948 campaign. Indeed, in 31 of the past 40 sessions of Congress, the House met more days before the July 4 break than the current House is scheduled to meet before the November election, Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said.
