The American Government
There are three branches to the United States Government, the legislative, judicial and executive branches. Ideally, no branch is more powerful than the other two. They are all supposed to be equal and have certain powers as well as certain checks on powers. I will discuss these branches more in depth in the paragraphs to follow. I will also talk about the United States Constitution, which is the framework of the government.
The Legislative Department
The Legislative Department consists mostly of the House of Representatives and the Senate, the two parts of Congress. The Senate has 100 members or two per state. The House of Representatives has one representative per 30,000 people in a state, currently 435, not including the one from Washington, D.C., who is not allowed to vote. This is called the "great compromise" because when the laws were first being written the larger states wanted to have a system like the House of representatives and the smaller states wanted an equal voice and liked the Senate system better. Finally, in a compromise, they decided to have both.
