Congress should pass a U S History test before being sworn into office

It is very clear that the many current members of the Senate and House of Representatives have no knowledge of United States history. Even a cursory read of history clearly places blame for the Great Depression on the inability of government to create jobs from 1929 - 1933. Further reads clearly link job creation with stability and growth in the mid thirties and place the recession of 1937 at the feet of a Congress looking for austerity in budget.

How about effective immediately every member of Congress and the Executive Branch must pass a United States history test before assuming the duties of their office?
