  • Executive VsLegislative Branch
  • Legislative
  • Executive is the most powerful branch because I am in it.
  • At least I can do this without you.
  • But, there must be something I can do besides veto laws, enforce laws, and executive orders? THIS CAN'T BE ALL THAT I DO-
  • President can declare executive orders without Congress.
  • As President, I can veto any bill that Congress creates.
  • Congress can create laws that can overrule a President's executive order. .
  • Actually, legislative is the most powerful branch.
  • Okay, but we can override that too.
  • Nope, that's about all you do besides, you know, being responsible for the entire country. We can override almost anything you put out in some way. Also, we could literally impeach you-
  • You might be able to veto any bill, but we as Congress can pass a law you vetoed with 2/3 majority vote.
  • Congress has the power to approve Presidential nominations .
  • Well yeah, it's checks and balances so you don't become such a powerful individual, we have to watch out for that.
  • OKAY OKAY I GET IT! I understand that Congress controls a lot and can override me in basically everything that I do.
  • Listen, I know this must be hard for you, but hey, you still have so much influence over the country.
  • Although, it DOES make sense that we are more powerful than you.
  • As you can see, overall the legislative branch is way more powerful than the executive branch. With the power of checks and balances, both branches check each other so one doesn't become ahead of themselves. Though, there are more checks on the President so the individual face of the country doesn't become a "overpowered ruler."
  • Uh hey, there's no need to be so upset. You can still sign treaties and sign the bills we make into law.
  • We can declare war, control the budgeting (tax, spending, etc.), and approve treaties.
