I believe that another indicator of the health of Congress ( Is Congress on the Mend, New York Times, April 28, 2007, page: A 27) is the composition of conference committees.
My understanding is that in the previous congress, especially on the House side, the inclusion of Democrats in Conference Committees was at a minimum. What has happened after the Democratic takeover. Are Republicans well represented or are Democrats playing the "What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander" game?
