It gets political

According to an Associated Press report, Texas House Speaker Tom Craddick told a middle-school class that the U.S. Congress is different from the Texas Legislature, because in Washington there are "454" members on the House side and "60" in the Senate.
The real numbers are 435-231 Republicans, 202 Democrats, 1 Independent, 1 Vacancy- in the House and 100-55 Republicans, 44 Democrats, 1 Independent- in the Senate.
