The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States consisting of two houses: the House of Representatives and the Senate. Congress meets in the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Both representatives and senators are chosen through direct election. Congress has a total of 535 voting members: 435 members in the House of Representatives and 100 members in the Senate. The members of the House of Representatives serve two-year terms representing the people of a district. Congressional districts are apportioned to states by population using the United States Census results, each state in the union having at least one representative in the House of Representatives. Regardless of population, each of the 50 states has two senators; the 100 senators each serve a six-year term. The terms are staggered so every two years approximately one-third of the Senate is up for election. Each staggered group of one-third of the senators are called 'classes'. No state of the United States has two senators from the same class. Most incumbents seek re-election, and their historical likelihood of winning subsequent elections exceeds 90 percent. At three times since 2011, a Gallup poll reported that Congress’s approval rating amongst Americans was 10%, meaning that only 1 in 10 Americans had a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the institution.

The United States Congress are disconnected from reality. These bunch of fools wield too much power and it's thank to them, that the country is stagnanting, because they are not being held responsible for the havoc they cause for being uncooperative usually for no reason other than politics.

Looking back from the edge of a new millennium, it is difficult not to be proud of what the federal government has tried to achieve these past fifty years. Name a significant domestic or foreign problem over the past half century and the federal government made some effort to solve it, sometimes through massive new programs such as Medicare and Apollo, other times through a string of smaller initiatives to address enduring problems such as disease and poverty. If a nation’s greatness is measured in part by the kinds of problems it asks its government to solve, the United States measures up very well, indeed.

It would be smarter than the general population of the US: about 10% of congress went to Harvard, for instance. Almost every single congressman graduated four year college. I'd say the median would probably be 110 vs. 100 for the general population, with few congressmen below 90, and many more above 125. I would venture that the congressmen with the lowest IQ scores probably come from districts where they face only token opposition, at best.

The collective intelligence of the entire Congress is less than that of a single Bill Clinton. No wonder The US Congress is so dysfunctional and unproductive.
