Transcript of "The 3 Branches of Government by Daniel"

  1. 1. THE 3 BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT Project By: Daniel
  2. 2. EXECUTIVE BRANCH  The Executive Branch consists of the President, Vice President, and Cabinet.  There are 15 departments in the Cabinet.  Can control the military.  Veto or approve laws.  Enforces laws  Writes Federal Budget
  3. 3. LEGISLATIVE BRANCH  The Legislative Branch consists of the Senate and the House Of Representatives.  Senate has 100 people.  House Of Representatives has 435 people.  Can declare war and Impeach the President.  Can overturn vetoed bills, make laws, and they approve and reject the presidents appointments.
  4. 4. JUDICIAL BRANCH  The Judicial Branch consists of the Supreme Court, Court Of Appeals, and the District Court.  Contains judges in the Supreme Court called Justices (9).  Can strike down laws that are unconstitutional and interpret laws.  Decide court cases and settle cases between 2 or more states.
  5. 5. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES  There is one representative for every several hundred thousand people in that state.  Only this house can introduce spending bills.  To be a Representative a person must be at least 25 years old, a U.S. citizen for at least 7 years, and when elected, must be an inhabitant of that state in which he or she shall be chosen.  The House of Representatives was established as a result of the Great Compromise. The House is larger than the Senate.  There were 59 members at the first session of the House of Representatives. Today there are 435 members. Representatives are elected to serve for a period of 2 years.
  6. 6. THE SENATE  Our country's legislative branch, or Congress, includes another lawmaking body called the Senate. Voters elect two senators from each state, regardless of population size.  To be a senator a person must be at least 30 years old, a U.S. citizen for at least 9 years, and have fulfilled the requirements for residency in the state that person wishes to represent.  Only the Senate can approve or reject treaties and presidential nominations for government offices.
  7. 7. WHY WE NEED A GOVERNMENT  There are many reasons why we need a stable government. For one without a proper government we would have no order and there would be chaos. Everyone wouldn’t know what to do and either people’s rights would be provoked or they would claim they had he power to do anything they wanted.  The three branches are vital to America because without them how would go on with life. The Judicial Branch makes it possible for court cases to be settled. The Executive Branch enforces laws and controls what we spend. The Legislative Branch makes laws and makes new bills. Without the government the U.S. would have an extremely hard time dealing with life.
