If you want the browser URL bar to change from what the user typed to "www.house.gov", you have to use an HTTP redirect. You cannot do that with DNS.
Other than that issue, what part of your current environment is not working? In your public data, I see:
www.speaker.gov. 300 IN CNAME wc.house.gov.edgekey.net.
wc.house.gov.edgekey.net. 17789 IN CNAME e4776.g.akamaiedge.net.
e4776.g.akamaiedge.net. 20 IN A 184.108.40.206
