The United States Senate is among the two legislative chambers constituting the Congress along with the House of Representatives. The Senate adopts the role of being the upper chamber and together with the House, they are responsible for all the acts and actions regarding the legislative branch of the United States. Having been established in 1789 in accordance with the Article I of the US Constitution, every state of the federal government is being represented by two delegates that are elected by popular vote serving for six years.  It embodies the equality among the sovereign states forming the United States with its delegation model while the House serves the function of being driven according the population of the districts. As the upper chamber, the United States Senate enjoys unique distinctions and roles such as key appointments to the government being made upon its advice and consent, ratification of international treaties, and impeachment of federal officials, including the President, on the grounds that two thirds of the Senate find the official guilty for treason, bribery, or other high crimes.

Historical United States Senate is apt for highly experienced delegates.
