I was going by The Statistical History of the United States which has the party affiliations for Congress up to 1970 (page 1083). I believe the House has been set at 435 maximum since the 1910 census (or maybe since 1912 when New Mexico and Arizona became states). It was briefly raised to 437 when Alaska and Hawaii became states, until the redistricting after the 1960 census.

Thanks for mentioning a good resource. I appreciate it.
Rush may be one of the places where I heard this 120 year line. Perhaps not...
I do know I heard it on FoxNews from someone.

(BHO fans said I was a hater, dismissed my thoughts. Sure glad our side isn't like that.)
