Asked in Roman Empire, Ancient Rome
What did the senate in rome do?
The ancient Roman senate was basically a consulting body. Issues would be debated during meetings and voted upon. They did not actually have the power to pass a law, that had to be voted upon by the people. During the principate the senate was no more than a rubber stamp for whatever the emperor wanted. The senate could also hold treason trials or high profile trials on other matters.
Does the Vice President run the Senate or the House?
The vice president does not "run" the senate. However he is the president of the senate and can vote, if the senate vote is tied. In a way the senate majority leader can control the senate in that all bills can only reach the floor to be debated and voted on if he or she says so. Harry Reid, a democrat, now "controls" the senate
