The Congress of the Argentine Nation is the legislative branch of the government of Argentina. It has two parts. There is a 72-seat Senate and a 257-seat Chamber of Deputies.

The Congress is in charge of setting taxes and customs. These must be the same across the country.[1] It rules the Central Bank of Argentina,[2] manages internal and external debt payment,[3] and the value of national currency[4] (currently the Argentine peso).
