According to Adam Bonica, the 112th House of Representatives will be the most conservative and most polarized House on record:

To an extent, though, I do think these comparisons are hard to make. Back in the good old days of the 108th Congress one thing that distinguished the really right-wing Republicans from the Bush/Hastert/McConnell leadership cadres is that the super-conservatives didn’t like the idea of adding a prescription drug benefit to Medicare. These days I don’t hear anyone, no matter how conservative, talking about repealing that.
