3 Branches of U.S. Government

3 BRANCHES OF U.S. GOVERNMENT

LEGISLATIVE BRANCH

EXECUTIVE BRANCH

JUDICIAL BRANCH

CONGRESS

PRESIDENT

VICE PRESIDENT

SUPREME COURT

The Judicial Branch of the government is made up of judges and courts. The judges are not elected by the people like the president and members of congress, they are appointed by the president and then confirmed by the Senate. The Constitution doesn't say how many Supreme Court Justices there should be. There have been as few as 6 justices in the past, but since 1869 there have been 9 justices. The job of the courts is to interpret the laws of the Congress. They do not make laws. They also only make decisions on actual cases where someone has shown that they have been harmed.

We the People!

The congress is comprised of The House of Representatives and the Senate. Their job is to Make a pass Laws

The Senate is another part of congress that helps in the law making process. The senate has senators from each state to represent their states, like the House of Representatives, except in the senate each state sends 2 senators no matter the size or population of the state so there is equal representation from each state. Another difference between the House and Senate is that senators serve for 6 years instead of 2. Only the Senate can approve or reject treaties and presidential nominations for government offices.

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

The House of Representatives is part of the Legislative branch in our Government. Each State elects a number of representatives from their state, depending on the population of the state. Here in Utah we have 4, but in a high population state like New York there are 27. The number of voting representatives in the House is fixed by law at no more than 435, proportionally representing the population of the 50 states. They play a big role in writing and passing federal laws.

The executive branch consists of the President and Vice President. The president is the manager of federal government. He promises to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. In order for American government to work, cooperation among the three branches is necessary. So the President, Congress, and the Supreme court need to work together. The president and vice president serve for a term of four years and can be re-elected to a second term.The president is elected by the people.

SENATE

High I'm the President of the United states of America.
