    We keep hearing about them but nobody seems to care about what they are and how they come to be. Go to Wikipedia and the list will open your eyes.

    House and Senate committees have members for both parties based upon which party has the majority. Caucuses seem to be exclusive to one party, thereby getting around the committee organization.

    Many, like the Freedom Caucus, don’t keep a list of their members.

    I wonder if they’re a thorn in the side of the congressional leadership.
