Congress is actually passing stuff again! Though still not health care.
The House of Representatives voted for the biggest overhaul of federal student loan programs since their creation; the measure ends subsidies for private lenders, boosts Pell Grants for needy students and creates grant programs to improve community colleges and college graduation rates. The House also passed a resolution of disapproval for Rep. Joe Wilson's "You lie!" outburst during President Obama's speech to Congress.
The Senate passed a big boost in spending for housing and transportation projects, and to allow guns on Amtrak.
And, yeah, both houses voted to defund ACORN to appease paranoid conservatives.
