I'm confused - which Congress is in session?
Didn't the old Congress end last night at midnight? Why is Boehner still in charge? Was he re-elected already?

6. Speaking of noon...
The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin.
