Since Congress is separated into two different Houses the leadership roles in each are different. Within what is referred to as the Peoples House there is the Speaker of the House, who is third in line to be president after the Vice-President, then you have the Majority Floor Leader, then the Minority Floor Leader. In the second part of Congress you have the Senate which has a dividing of leadership from the Vice-President, who presides over the Senate hearings and is called the President of the Senate and never votes but to break a tie, then there is the Majority and Minority Whips.
