508 words - 3 pages

Another branch of the United States government is the Judicial Branch. This branch is made up of the court system this includes the supreme court. The supreme court is the highest court in the United States. Courts decide arguments about the meaning of laws, how they are applied, and whether they break the rules of the Constitution.The last branch to mention would be the Executive branch. This branch consists of the President ,Vice- President and the Cabinet members. The Executive branch of Government enforces the laws of the United States.Each branch checks and balances each other because as you can each branch has a certain responsibility to the country, and with out one another the constitution wont work as well as it does now. An example of check and balances would be like this , the President can veto bills approved by Congress and the President nominates individuals to serve in the Federal judiciary; the Supreme Court can declare a law enacted by Congress or an action by the President unconstitutional; and Congress can impeach the President and Federal court justices and judges. So that would be a form of which the Constitution's three branches work together and at the same time be able to perform their own responsibility with out any one leading absolute power.All in all the constitution's three branches are very important to the U.S government, because each serve it own duties to it's country but at he same time working together as one.
