The United States Congress is the legislative branch of the federal government and consists of two houses: the lower house known as the House of Representatives and the upper house known as the Senate.
Both have to pass a bill in order for it to become law (which is the chief power of congress).
The Senate is about representing the states. The House is about representing the people directly. Senators serve for 6-year terms. Representatives serve for 2-year terms. Both houses must have 2/3rds of its members vote to override a Presidential veto.
There are 535 members of Congress: 100 senators and 435 representatives in the House. In general, the House represents the population, while the Senate represents a "landed/large property" populace.
The major power of the House is to pass federal legislation that affects the entire country although its bills must also be passed by the Senate and further agreed to by the United States President before becoming law (unless both the House and Senate re-pass the legislation with a two-thirds majority in each chamber).
Each U.S. state is represented in the House in proportion to its population but is entitled to at least one representative. The most populous state, California, currently has 53 representatives.
The Constitution empowers the House of Representatives to impeach federal officials for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors and empowers the Senate to try such impeachment.
Every state is represented by two Senators, but by different numbers of Representatives based on their population. The Senate gives small states equal representation, because the Senate is about representing the states. The House is about representing the people directly. Senators serve for 6-year terms.
The major power of the House is to pass federal legislation that affects the entire country although its bills must also be passed by the Senate and further agreed to by the U.S. President before becoming law.
The House plays a major role in government, mainly that of initiating all revenue-based legislation. Any proposal to raise taxes must come from the House, with Senate review and approval. The Senate, on the other hand, has sole power of approval on foreign treaties and cabinet and judicial nominations, including appointments to the Supreme Court.
Senate has the sole power to conduct impeachment trials
The Senate is composed of two senators from each state who are granted exclusive powers to confirm appointments and place holds on laws. It has the power to consent to treaties as a precondition to their ratification and consenting or confirming appointments of Cabinet secretaries, federal judges, other federal executive officials, military officers, regulatory officials, ambassadors, and other federal uniformed officers.
Senators serve terms of six years each; the terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the seats are up for election every two years. The Senate has several exclusive powers not granted to the House.
