Comparing party roles in the UK House of Commons and U.S. Congress During my research of comparing the party roles of the UK House of Commons and the U.S. Congress, I found a variety of differences between the two bodies of government. I found many of the difference by researching the histories of both the House of Commons and U.S. Congress. I various research tools that I used included websites, books, class material and encyclopedias. My goal for this essay is to describe, in the uttermost detail, the comparing of the party roles in the House of Commons and the U.S. Congress in terms that make sense to the everyday common reader. To achieve this goal of exploring some of the main difference and likeness of the two different government bodies in an easy format to understand and read; I have organized my paper into three main sections; with two of the sections having subsections.
In the first section, I am describing what Parliament is and explaining the two Houses that make up Parliament; the House of Commons and the House of the Lords. In this section, there will also be subsections describing the make-up and history of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
In the second section, I provide information about the United States. Congress and its rich history. Also within this U.S. Congress section, I will have a subsection describing the two main parties in the Congress; The House of Representative, better known as “the House” and the Senate.
