Summarize the purpose of “Checks and Balances” in the US Government.
Each branch “checks" the power of the other branches to make sure that the power is balanced between them. This way, no one branch becomes too powerful. For instance, the legislative branch introduces and votes on a bill. The bill then goes to the executive branch, where the President decides whether he thinks the bill is good for the country. If so, he signs the bill, and it becomes a law. If the President does not believe the bill is good for the country, he does not sign it. This is called a veto. But the legislative branch gets another chance. With enough votes, the legislative branch can override the executive branch's veto, and the bill becomes a law.
Which parts of the United States Government do you find to be most confusing or difficult to understand? Why?
I don't really feel that there is anything that I find majorly confusing in any way, simply because I find the US Government easy to understand,
