44 How does the Constitution Work?
45 The Constitution establishes three main branches of Government. These are: Legislative power Executive power Judicial power Each one has its own role in how the law is made and used.
47 The Legislative Power The legislature is called the Congress It is composed of two bodies: 1. The House of representatives The Senate
48 The House of Representatives Each representative comes from a neighborhood in one of the 50 States. There are 435 representatives. Each one's work is to represent the people in his district. The people elect the representative and they have the right to tell you how they feel about issues. The States with the largest population have more representatives and each State has at least one.
49 The Senate The Senate is composed of 100 senators, two for each State. Senators are elected by the people of the State and must represent the interests of all people. When Congress wants to pass a law, both in the House and the Senate need to agree in the law itself. If they can't agree, then the law cannot pass.
50 The Executive Power The role of the Executive is to ensure compliance with the law. It is headed by the President and includes the Vice President and the Secretaries of all the national services, as the Department of Homeland Security and Department of education. All together they form the Presidential Cabinet.
51 Before a project becomes a law, it is sent to the President. The President has three options: 1. It can sign the law project, in which case one becomes law. 2. It can veto the law, that soon it sends again to the Congress, that can annul I veto if two thirds of both cameras of the Congress vote to do it. 3. It can refuse to sign the law project, but not to veto it. This case, the project will become law after ten days.
52 The Judicial Power The role of the Judiciary is to interpret the law. It includes all the federal courts, up to the Supreme Court, that is the ultimate authority. The states have their own judicial systems that are below the national judicial system.
53 All three branches or powers have to work together. The same way the Founding Fathers could compromise in the content of the Constitution, all three branches or powers have to compromise. Neither one has total authority upon the other, for the powers are shared, helping to protect the rights of the People.
