The second branch of the Executive Branch of America's Government. The first branch being the Executive, or Bush Branch.

The Congress votes on things for the President to sign into law. When the President signs them, he includes a statement at the end indicating whether or not he apporoves of the work Congress is doing. Somewhat like what a teacher does at the bottom of a student's homework. If the President is Republican, ideally Congress would act as a rubber stamp.

According to Constitutional scholar Tony Snow, Congress does not have oversight abilities.

What The Constitution Allows Congress To DoEdit

Houses of CongressEdit

The HouseEdit

See list of Representatives

Congress is split into two "houses". The adults, The Senate, speak in complete sentences and work in the Adults' Room of the Congress. The other house of Congress, the House, is where the kids go while the Senate is in session. In the Romper Room, there is coloring and finger painting and napping. But sometimes tempers flare up and someone has to take a time out.

The SenateEdit

See list of Senators

The members of the Senate are called "Senators". The members of the House are called "Representatives", because each state picks one kid to "represent" each of their districts. Each state is split into as many districts as it takes for Republicans to have a majority. Every member of Congress is called a Congressman, no matter which house they are in, and even if he is a girl.

Members have special assistants to help with Washington's loneliness and soul-crushing workload. They are called interns or pages.

SessionsEdit

Congress voting while in session.

Everytime the Congress gets together to vote on things, they call it a "session". Everytime Congress has a session, they add a number to the name of the Congress. The first time there was a Congress, they were called the First Congress when they first met. The next time, they called themselves the Second Congress, and so on.

Congress doesn't meet very often, but when they do, they vote on things of great import and length. These "things" are actually called "bills" because each time Congress votes for something, lobbyists give them many bills.

According to Hillary Clinton's favorite political philosopher, when Congress convenes, they never have America's interests at heart.Episode #316
