How many congressmen in the us house of representatives does it take on any vote to have a majority?
There are currently a total of 435 possible members of the US House of Representatives who may vote on the House floor. If all Representatives are present and voting it …would take 218 votes to have a majority. Often there are fewer present and voting so it is possible to have a majority with fewer than 218 votes. Also there is the possibility with a new Democrat Congress in 2009 that the District of Columbia might be given one or more vote(s) in Congress which could change the answer above. Whether DC gets a vote without any other adjustment to the membership numbers (subtracting one or more from other states), DC gets a vote by adding more representatives to the 435 total, or DC gets a vote along with additional representatives allotted to another state (for example, Utah, as proposed in the last few years), is not yet determined.
36 from the house of representatives, 2 senators, totaling up to 38 people in average government for Texas.

The House of Representatives of Congress number 435 (435 of them from districts of roughly equal population) are elected for terms of two years. Senators (100 of them, two f…rom each State) are elected to six year terms. Usually the members of the House of Representatives are call "congressmen". and the members of the Senate are called "senators". QUestion a bit unclear. It could be interepreted as historical, in which case the answer is that the nation has been electing congressmen since the Constitution was passed in 1787. Stepping back a bit further, men were elected to three Continental Congress in 1774 through 1789.

25 of the 43 presidents, including the current President Obama, were members of the bar and qualified to practice as lawyers.

Cleveland is counted twice, as both the 22nd and 24 presidents.)
