The Supreme Court has been applying the constitutional theory to most all decisions rendered. They believe the president has the use of all powers granted by the Constitution and if he over steps those spelled out in the doctrine then he must be able to justify his actions. This was shown in the case of Youngstown Sheet Tube Co v. Saywer. When the President was told he had over stepped his boundaries (Mason & Stephenson, 2012). Mason, A., & Stephenson, D. (2012).
By contrast, the Executive power the president propose bills to Congress, he enforces federal laws, he is Commander in Chief of the armed forces, and with the approval of the Senate, the president defines treaties and appoints federal judges, ambassadors and other members of the secretariats of the Executive branch (Department of Defense, Commerce, Justice, State, etc.). Each head of a secretariat and all of them form a Council called Cabinet. The Vice-President, elected from the same political party of the president, serves as president of the Senate and in the case of death or incapacity of the president he assumes the Presidency until the end of the
The President is responsible for appointing ambassadors, receiving ambassadors of other nations and foreign policy officials. He can make or negotiate existing treaties. He presents information on the State of Union and recommends legislation to Congress. He can adjourn Congress if House and Senate cannot agree. This is his legislative power.
Transition- Now that we have discussed the law makers and enforcers, let’s now move into the branch of government who evaluates and interprets our constitutional rights, the judicial branch. C. The judicial branch. 1. The judicial branch consists of the Supreme Court and other various courts system at the federal, state, and local level. As I mentioned before the Supreme Court Justices are nominated the President of the United States, but the Senate must also approve them with at least 51 out of the 100 possible votes (“Branches of Government”).
Each is granted different powers and responsibilities. The Senate has the power to approve treaties proposed by the president as well as confirming the president's choice for judges, cabinet members and other officials. (Burns, 308) It also has the power to perform hearings, after the House has voted to impeach a president or federal judge. The House of Representatives has the authority to propose taxes, but the Senate must approve the bill first. In the House of Representative, the Speaker has a lot more say in how things are run than Senate leaders, who have to rely on persuasion to manage business.
They give advice and consent to the executive branch appointees, when the president wants to appoint federal judges and major officials he then seeks the “OK” from the non legislative branch. Throughout time congress has conducted investigations such as the most recent one with Toyota recalls. Because of all the issues with imported vehicles this gives the right for the non legislative branch to conduct these investigations because there are so many people in America who own these cars. Lobbyists are people who engage in the business of persuading a legislator to pass laws that are favorable and to defeat those that are not in their interest or that do not intere... ... middle of paper ... ...f these groups date back to the nineteenth century but most were started in the past four decades such as the single-issue groups and political action committees. I think that the framers of the constitution thought that the lobbyists would be a help to congress by keeping the people informed of the happenings of the political issues and helping people form opinions of those issues.
1. a. As outlined in article 2 of the Constitution, the president as chief legislator and is responsible for shaping policy. The connection between Congress and the executive is one of the most important aspects of government. The Constitution is discrete about the president 's part in legislating, yet the president can collect information for the bureaucracy, give a legislative agenda to Congress, and go to the public for backing his legislative agenda. The president may propose an appeal to Congress, to enact laws he believes are needed.
The Vice President and the President of the United States have the power to cast a vote in the Senate in the case of a tie. The Senate has the power to confirm the President’s appointments and to ratify treaties. However, the House must approve these appointments and any treaty that involves foreign trade. Also any impeachment process forwarded by the House must go through the
How each Branch works is deliberate in each action and ruling. The Legislative Branch is made up of congress members. It has the authority to create laws and declare war on other nations. Another power is checking the other houses by means of voting through congress. Their checks on the Executive Branch begin with the power to overturn a presidential veto by a
The United States government needs to pass an amendment to allow Presidents to use the line item veto. The Constitution of the United States sets out the procedure of a bill becoming a law in Article 1, Section 7. Scholars have interpreted the Constitution to read that a president can only sign or veto a bill, but the section that many other scholars have looked over that would allow for the line-item veto is that, “if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to r... ... middle of paper ... ...ion Review 57.2 (1997): 95-104.
