The Legislative Branch is the focus of Article |. The Legislative Branch makes the laws for America. The two houses of Congress is the House of Representatives and the Senate. In Section two of Article | is about the House of Representatives. A Representatives term only last two years.

Section 3 of Article | is on the Senate. Each state can receive only two Senates. The Senates can only serve for six years.

In the United States there are fifty states and that means there are a hundred senators You also do not have to be born in the United States, but you have to be at least thirty years old..

Together both The House of Representatives and The Senates make up the Congress. The Congress meets at least one time every year. The meeting is always held on the first Friday in December. They both together dan decide to rule out a member of the Congress.

Congress make the men and women of America pay taxes. When the Americans pay back the taxes this is called revenue. The House of Representatives are the ones who make the revenue bills. The Congress also makes the laws and if the president vetoes the bill then that's called veto. In order for a law to pass two thirds of the congress have to agree.

There will be no slavery after 1808. Taxes will stay in order, and the government will still have power to do things that the states cannot.

The constitution means everything to me. Now that Irvine of it without the Constitution I wouldn't be aloud to own a gun or any weapon. Not only that I wouldn't be aloud to speak what I want. It also allows me to be friends with any colored person on this earth. It also gives me the rights to go on public lands to hunt. Without the constitution my life would suck.
