I have seen the acronym SCOTUS written for "Supreme Court Of The United States". I have seen POTUS written for "President Of The United States".

So why have I not seen anything similar for the other branches of government?

Well, the Senate would be SOTUS, and that would too much like school kid's Latin for "drunken sot".
The House of Representatives HOROTUS, and there would be (1) imcomprehension, and (2) the initial syllable would sound dangerously like a bawdy house in the red light district.

And using the word "Congress" would give us COTUS, and that seems too much like what they do to us.
