Budget Problem Solving in United States Government

- The government of the United States has undergone drastic change since its original development. The checks and balances throughout the government’s three branches were intentionally created to keep the central powers relatively weak.

The negative effects of this power swell are quite visible in the constant difficulties in passing a national budget. The country's national deficit and bloated spending are both evidences of the issues caused by a government with too much power on their hands....   [tags: power, branches, spending, health, security]

Should the Government Tell us What to do
