The United States Constitution consists of three bodies namely the Legislative, the Executive and the Judiciary bodies. The Legislative body is responsible for making and approving laws, the Executive sector assumes the duty of executing those laws. As far as the Judiciary body goes, it ensures smooth carriage of all pieces of legislations. There is a checks and balances system, which ensures that every body is carrying on their job effectively and no clunkers are being committed on either behalf.

The Legislative body, which constitutes the Congress comprises of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The major difference between the two legislative bodies, that is, the Senate and the House of Representatives is that in the Senate the significance of representation of all the states is equal, whereas in the House of Representatives, the significance of representation of a particular state is directly proportional to the population strength of that very state.

Mehreen83 is correct on all counts. Another difference in the House and the Senate is that the House deals with all money bills.
