    No--its a simple majority with limited exceptions. That being said, the President can veto any bill and then you need 2/3rds of Congress to over-ride the veto. So, with limited exceptions as provided in the Constitution, Congress needs a simple majority and the President's signature or a 2/3rds majority if the President refuses to sign.
