Who's The Boss? Essay

848 words - 3 pages

What does the word union mean to you? My thoughts wonder to workers, disgruntled employees, and strikes. What if you read the word union with others such as order, justice, tranquility, welfare, blessing of liberty and posterity? These words are the roots of the Constitution that not only inspire patriotism but also a guideline for a balanced government. Our forefathers wanted a central government that was strong enough to run the United States but not absolute. They separated the government into three branches of equal power with no one branch able to supercede the others. But did they succeed?The President is the key player of the executive branch. The president has the power to serve as head administrator of the nation. Vague in nature, this duty has been interpreted to mean that the president could oversee various programs, agencies, department, etc. He is the commander and chief of all military branches but can't declare war without a Congressional Declaration.

The President also has the power to convene congress for important occasions but he does not have the power to adjourn congress. He can appoint his cabinet and various other officials; some require the Senate approval. He can make treaties with foreign countries with a two-thirds Senate vote. He can also grant pardons except in cases of impeachment. The president also has the power to veto meaning disapprove a bill by Congress of course they can still pass it with a two-third vote. Another type of veto the President can use is the pocket veto, with this veto the president may choose not to sign a bill within a ten-day time frame. Unfortunately, if Congress is in session, after the ten days pass the bill automatically becomes law. This veto is only affective if Congress has adjourned sometime during this ten-day period, which allows the bill to die. Next, we will look at the powers of the Legislative Branch.The Legislative branch is made up of 100 Senators and 435 House of Representatives. Their duties are similar and consist of the following. They have the power to declare war, raise an army and navy, borrow and coin money, regulate interstate commerce, create federal courts, establish rules for the naturalization of immigrants and have implied powers that are necessary for carrying into executive foregoing powers. Additionally each has also separate powers such as the House has the...
