What Is the Majority Whip?
"In the Congress, each party has their own 'whip,' and the whip is the guy that makes sure that everybody votes along party lines because otherwise our Congress would encourage dangerous independent thought," Jon says. "We don't want that in our government. We want everyone to do exactly what the other person is doing."
"Think of the
majority whip as Congress' 'mean girl' basically saying to the other people in
their party, 'Today we're wearing pink,'" Jon says.
