Let's just say amazing. Our great people who elect those to go forward to represent not all our interests but the American people. Through greatness that need's is a house for those who need to bring forth the greatness of our nation to pass law's etc, and special intranets for the American people. How great we have it with what we have. The greatness of America isn't in the houses in Washington but the hearts and minds of those who go through these doors to represent the best of the best in the US. For the world sees how to do it, we show it forward.
Visiting the U.S. Capitol is an experience that should not be passed up. There's incredible views, picture taking opportunities, and much history to learn. Unfortunately, our tour guide was quite rude but it didn't get in the way of having a good time. Even had the chance to walk right by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. That's certainly not something that happens every day!

Was able to experience our nation's Capitol thanks to a tour through our state's congressman. We ALL have this access, you just need to get in touch with your representative. Seeing the house and congressional chambers is something everyone should take the time for. What happens there effects all of us.
If I were building my own legislative branch building to house the upper and lower houses of the most powerful nation on earth, I couldn't have done a better job myself! Seriously, this - along with the White House and the U.S. Supreme Court building, are impressive in the truest sense. Here, the richness of our legislative history is seen from every state and epoch since our beginning. I will load photos once I return to a computer - iPhone 6+ is great but this deserved more. You're only cheating yourself if you don't visit.
