    I'd say missing 57% or 38% or 10% of votes, when your JOB in to be a Legislator, is sickening and disgusting and dissapointing as hell.

    I would agree if there was any chance Congress could/would ever do anything worthwhile or substantial... but since neither rarely happens, it's no big deal ;)

    Fear not, Fish... I'm sure there's 100% attendance on votes concerning congressional pay raises.
