In which Craig Benzine teaches you about the United States Congress, and why it’s bicameral, and what bicameral means. Craig tells you what the Senate and House of Representatives are for, some of the history of the institutions, and reveal to you just how you can become a representative. It’s not that easy. But an eagle gets punched, so there’s that.
