House Sub-committees do not exist

Committee url returns no sub-committees for the House. Of the 72 sub-committees, all of them are for the senate.

This may be either the house has only committees (no sub-committees) or the api has an error.

If it is that the House has no sub-committees, why does the documentation have this example to pull
Subcommittees of the House Ways and Means Committee:
/committees?parent_committee_id=HSWM

I did this url:
http://congress.api.sunlightfoundation.com/committees?subcommittee=true&chamber=house&apikey=...

For this results:
{"results":[],"count":0,"page":{"count":0,"per_page":20,"page":1}}

This is also true for Joint chambers. Although, this makes more sense. Joint is a big project and probably not broken into sub-committees.
