legislative Branch Jada M. Satki

Powers of the legislative branch: its powers include passing laws, originating spending bills (House), impeaching officials (Senate), and approving treaties (Senate).

a. The most important power according to me is the power to make laws.

Who/What makes up the branch: Headed by Congress, which includes the House of Representatives and the Senate. The main task of these two bodies is to make the laws.

Amount of times that particular power has been used throughout history: The House has initiated impeachment proceedings more than 60 times but less than a third have led to full impeachments. Just eight—all federal judges—have been convicted and removed from office by the Senate. Outside of the 15 federal judges impeached by the House, two Presidents (Andrew Johnson in 1868 and William Jefferson (Bill) Clinton in 1998).

a. It was happened over 60 times.

Why I believe this branch is the most powerful: i think the legislative branch is the most powerful because its about passing laws. It was made up because not many people were getting there way on the laws they wanted. It helps with checks and balances, that is one branch of the government has to keep another branch of the government in check. that is why i choice the legislative branch as my most impost argument and branch of government.
