According to a document review conducted by the Sunlight Foundation, Congress spent more days in session in 2009 than in any year since 1995. The Sunlight Foundation sells this as "working harder," and maybe it is, though many members of Congress would argue that time spent in the home office, fact-finding trips, constituent meetings and much else should count as "work." Either way, Congress spent more days in 2009 doing the nation's business than in any year since 1995.
