"I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace, that two are called a law firm, and that three or more become a congress."




The 86th Congress is one of great beginnings. The House of Representatives has the Democrats leading with a slight majority, while the Senate Democrats boast an even smaller majority. Old faces battle with the new ones, hoping to keep things the way they've always been, as legislators seek to turn ideas into law, to find success for themselves and their constituents, and to bring down their foes by whatever means necessary.

Get in, make laws, get them to the floor, and see if you've got what it takes to turn the world's most infamous legislative body into your field of success.

Senator from Tennessee (Democratic)
The Majority Whip arrived in the Senate chamber to find that it was still quite empty. Nodding courteously to the Vice President, he made his way to his desk and reviewed the notes that had been prepared for him.

HOUSE FLOOR
JANUARY 3RD, 1959


The Speaker Pro Tempore watched on from their seat as the newly elected and re-elected Congressmen filed in over the course of the morning. Arms folded on his legs, he waited patiently for everyone to arrive, watching with mild interest as some of them chose to mingle or take their seats and wait with him. Once all of the Congressmen elect had entered the chamber, the Speaker Pro Tempore grabbed the Gavel and struck to get everyone's attention.

"Thank you all for being here today, and I would like to extend my congratulations to all of you on your electoral victories last November. I hope you will all join me in praying that we will be able to accomplish many great things for the United States over the next two years. May God bless all of you.

"Now, according to precedent, the Chair shall swear in the members en masse, so all of the members-elect will rise and the Chair will now administer the oath of office." He cleared his throat.

"If all members-elect will raise their right hand." He rose his as well.

"Do you solemnly swear or affirm that you will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that you will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that you take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that you will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which you are about to enter. So help you God?"

Joshua Sharp
Senator from Mississippi (Democratic)


Joshua Sharp undoes his white cotton jacket, handing it to a nearby congressional aide who stuffed it into the senate cloakroom, dressed in a sharp pair of grey suspenders that looked too big on the skinny member of congress, he enters the Senate chambers and takes a seat at his Senate Desk, admiring the large D next to his name.

The Vice President takes his seat at the front of the Senate and waits for the Senators to arrive, to begin this legislative session.

After Senators began arriving, the President Pro Tempore of the Senate spoke over the rowdy bunch, "Good Morning Senators." he said in his booming voice to get their attention, "I know that Senator Sharps rowdy exit from Mississippi might be interesting to some of you, but not to the chair. We have work to do and as per the precedent, the Vice President will swear in the Senator-Elects, those of you who have kept your jobs, may sit down, those of you who've gained new occupations, come down to the chair."

The Vice President sends bibles out to all of the Senator-Elects and begins to speak, "Welcome Senators, New and otherwise. Those of you who are new here, come down to the chair." The vice president watched as the newly elected senators, walked towards him, and as all of them came to a relatively close distance he motioned for them to stop before he spoke.

"Senators, take the bible or other book of significance to yourself, hold it in your left hand, raise your right hand and repeat after me,

'I do solemnly swear, that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.'"

Senator-Elect William Lawrence Oswald Jr.

The United States Senate
January 3rd, 1959


The idea of being sworn in felt oddly strange to Willie. He had done it before, true, but it was only as he stood in the Senate chamber with all the other old men that he considered the merits of it. His oath had been made in blood. Swearing in a man who wore the medal of honor on his chest seemed frankly hilarious given the circumstances. But he gave it no mind. It would be something for the history book he hoped they’d write about him one day. Perhaps that reporter back in Boston will finally finish that biography he was making. Once he was done with which cat was stuck in which tree that day.

He nodded toward some of the assembled men. It was a rare chance he got to grace this chamber with his presence, the House was a lot more comfortable. He had met many of these esteemed gentlemen before, but only on a courtesy basis. He’d only really been familiar with the Senators from Massachusetts. Specifically the one he was replacing here today.

Stepping forward towards where he was summoned, he gazed at the crowd watching him. Perhaps judging him. What he was up to, what he could do, what he would do. All things that no doubt this chamber had come to eye with caution, like an infection it might need to be battled and removed so the body can survive.

His hand came to the bible he had borrowed from his mother, placed upon it with a sigh, he simply repeated the oath the man of immense power in front of him gave.

“I do solemnly swear, that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

The words flowed like honey from his lips. He meant every word.

"And so help me Massachusetts"

And now people could start calling him Senator, that would make calls a little shorter. The elect hardly rolled off the tongue.

“My apologies Mr President, it seems my campaigning has gotten ahead of me and procedure is a blur. If they say start as you mean to go on, I hope that’s not true in my case!”

A smile flashed from him. God he hated this kind of thing.

“In that case Mr President, I move to end the debate regarding the bill as I see no point in stalling on such an obvious thing.”

He took his seat.

“Seconded.”

Where is the horse gone? Where the warrior?
Where is the treasure-giver? Where are the seats at the feast?
Where are the revels in the hall?
Alas for the bright cup! Alas for the mailed warrior!
Alas for the splendour of the prince!
How that time has passed away, dark under the cover of night, as if it never were.

President Pro Tempore: "I hear a second and no objections, the motion passes. The Senate will now vote on the Bill Proposing that the state of the Union be the 26th. All those in favor vote 'Aye' all those against vote 'Nay or No', a Nay vote will send the bill back onto the docket while an 'Aye' vote sends the bill to the House for Acceptance."
