At first glance, Congress may appear to be the most intricate element of the U.S. government's system of checks and balances. It involves both the Senate and House of Representatives, both of which have completely different rules for formation, and can create crippling stalemates in the passage of bills and laws through the highest hands in government. Your readers will untangle the mysteries that shadow this branch, learning about the two houses of Congress individually, and exploring examples of their capabilities when working together, and in opposition.
