The bank bailout (TARP) and the GM and Chrysler “emergency loan” In a word, no. It is irrelevant that the banks and car companies paid their loans back sooner than expected, or that certain entities were saved. Why should the federal government be allowed to give your money to private enterprises of their choosing? If a company behaves badly, it is up to that company to bear the consequences of their actions. It is not up to you, the taxpayer. Political Behavior/Good Government I will not take a pension, because I see no need for the people of the United States to fund my retirement. If the law requires me to take a pension, I will donate it in full to Homes For Our Troops. I will read every bill which comes before me for a vote. If, after having read it, I can determine that it passes constitutional muster, I will make it available for seven days online in plain English for my constituents to read. If the Congress is unwilling to grant its members the time for this kind of scrutiny by the public, my vote will be no. Would you ever sign something that you hadn’t read? States’ Rights The United States Constitution places only seventeen pages worth of power in the hands of the federal government. The rest of it belongs to the states and to the people. As your Congressman, I will work to give the power back to the states, cities, towns, and people, because that’s where it belongs. The Second Amendment I will always stand by the right of the individual American citizen to keep and bear arms.
The US Senate holds the upper position or the upper chamber in the legislative branch, which is considered the most influential body of the Federal Government and the House of Representatives. The Senate of the United States is a legislative branch of the government that consists of 100 members called the Senators. Every state in the US is represented by two senators, who are elected statewide. Both the senators are elected for a term of six years and are eligible for re-election the following year. The Vice President of the United States leads the senator who is also the President of the Senate. If there exists a tie between the members, then the Vice President, who is also the President of the senate’s, is allowed to cast their vote.
All about the senatesThey're a group of 100 members called the Senators. Regardless of the state's population, every state owns two senators, unlike the members of the house, who are voted based on the population and geographical constraints. Out of their six-year tenure, one-third of the seats are up for election, every two years. Until the enactment of the 17TH Amendment Act of 1919, the senators were elected by the state legislatures, after which the power was given to the members of the state. They conduct their political meetings and whereabouts in the north wing of the US Capitol building in Washington DC.
Leader of the senatesLike mentioned above, the Vice President is the learned or the President of the senate, and they have the power to cast a deciding vote in case of a tie. When the vice president is present in the house, they are expected to speak if they are reporting results of an Electoral College vote in the presidential elections.
Powers of the SenateThe senate's power is described in the constitution as well. Both the houses of the congress and the constitution are required to ensure the role of the upper boy, according to too the verses of the constitution in Article I, section 3. Apart from that, they have the power in:
- Impeachment of the President
- Impeachment of Vice president
- Impeachment of higher-order members like the high court judges etc
- With a two-thirds majority in the house, the Senates have the power to impeach anybody from their term of office.

- Every decision that is taken in the house, including the ones regarding cabinet ministers etc. must have two-thirds of the senate's votes, only then the decision will be under effect.
