Are members of Congress playing solitaire in this picture? Several widely circulated emails claim it shows a couple members of Congress playing solitaire during the lenghty debate over health care reform.
"It seems to me that if all we are doing is paying these congressmen and women a gigantic salary to sit in congressional session and play solitaire or whatever, it's time to bring most of them back home by replacement.
