This page will teach you all about the Federal Government and how the Constitution sets up our Federal Government.

The Constitution:

Sets up our federal government by spliting the power into three branches and by sharing the power between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches.

 

 

 
 The Legislative Branch:
- can override a veto
-  impeach judges
-  reject presidential appointments
- refuse to  approve treaties
MAKES LAWS
 The Executive Branch:
-vetos legislation
-appoints judges
-proposes policy
-carries out laws
-makes treaties
 The Judicial Branch:

The Checks and Balances System:
Works by each branch checking the others, to make sure that one does not become more powerful than the others.
