  1. Nope, absolutely not.
    Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the
    Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the
    United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it,
    with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originat
    ed, who
    shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to
    reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall
    agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the
    other House, by which i
    t shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by
    two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law.

  3. I think it's the rules committee. That committee controls which bills get considered by the whole House. The Senate vests that power in the majority leader, not a committee. Those are internal rules of each house, not specified in the Constitution. Each house sets it's own rules.
