Summary:

The Founding Fathers made Congress two houses for a reason. The Senate gives every state equal representation, while the House of Representatives allows states with a larger population a bigger voice in government. Learning how this system works is an important piece of understanding how laws are made in the United States. This book breaks down the many jobs of Congress as well as the specific qualifications needed to be a representative or senator. Written simply and clearly, the social studies content can aid any student looking to better understand how Congress works.
