Learn About Congress : Congress Q & A
“Congress, like any organization, can be baffling to those unfamiliar with the rules, conventions, and traditions of the organization.

Others are “nice to know,” like the origins of the elephant and donkey as party mascots.”–From the website. From the Center on Congress At Indiana University.
