Understand the Branches of Government in 8 Minutes

let’s say you never took social studies
back in high school or you did but you forgot everything from it can
you say what the branches of the federal government are and what they do can you say your own name do you know
where you are does the back of your head hurt if so you may have amnesia and will need a
different video or a trip to the emergency room the three branches in the order will
talk about them are the legislative branch or congress
the executive branch or the president and the federal
agencies and the judicial branch or the federal courts first congress the legislative branch congress
is the branch that writes and passes laws it also coins money passes budgets decides taxes and fees for revenue and
regulates interstate or international commerce basically congress is where the money is
regulating commerce is one of the most important powers
because when the Constitution was written most everything was either made or grew
by the person using it or bought from close by now pretty much everything comes to us from
far away and through many people and corporations the Supreme Court has also widened the definition of Interstate to include activities that happen entirely in one state if the total of those activities affects interstate commerce in some way that has come to mean just about everything which gives
congress a lot of power also in the money department is spending
taxes come in and spending goes out the supreme court
has ruled congress can pretty much spend money on anything it wants to as long as it doesn’t violate anyone’s
rights including equal treatment and due
process in doing so this might even mean spending money to
get the states to do something Congress doesn’t have the power to order them to
do so the spending power is another one of
the broadest powers Congress has Congress has the power to create armed
forces and to declare war though there is an ongoing debate
between Congress and the President on when a declaration of war is actually
needed to start fighting Presidents have argued that they don’t
need to have a declaration of war when the U.S. is attacked or when the
fighting is less than a full out war the last war that was declared first was
World War II Congress has passed a law requiring the
President to get approval for any armed conflict less than a war after a certain amount of time but
Presidents claim they don’t necessarily need to do that
which has been the source of arguing when we fought in Somalia and Bosnia in
the nineties or Libya recently Congress has some
slightly less exciting powers too they can create a postal service but not
manage it they can manage patents trademarks and
copyrights they can create federal courts but don’t
manage them either they have the power to
investigate the federal agencies they can set standard weights and
measures the post-Civil War amendments to the Constitution also give Congress certain powers to
enforce the protection and equal treatment of racial minorities in addition to all the listed powers of Congress it also has the power to create any laws
necessary to enforce its listed powers that could be a lot of things so it has
the potential to become another big source of power now on to the president and the executive
branch the president executes the laws this means managing the federal agencies there are quite a few all federal agencies get their powers from the laws passed by Congress and get their funding from the budgets
passed by Congress but the president manages them this
includes picking over 6,000 top-level positions that includes all the federal judges the Senate has to approve the highest
level positions in the agencies as well as the judges even though it
seems like Congress would have all the power since it writes the laws the President
is the one who approves rules and regulations for the agencies usually the law only gives an outline of what the agency needs to do and the regulations fill that in Congress can set rules about how agencies may spend money
though has an extra way to have control the President is the commander in chief
of the armed forces so even if Congress decides that we’re
at war the President actually runs the war the President can grant pardons for
federal crimes some pardon requests stand a better
chance than others the president manages foreign relations
though the Senate has to agree to a treaty by a two-thirds vote the technical term for that is
ratification now even though Congress passes laws the President can veto or the president
can hold the bill for up to 10 days and if Congress’s session ends in that
time the bill goes away which is called a pocket veto the term
pocket veto comes from the first president to use it
James Madison who had very deep pockets where he
stored trail mix Congress can override a veto and pass
the law anyway but that takes a two-thirds majority so
it doesn’t happen very often the President can also sign a law but
say that he’ll only interpret it in certain ways which is called a signing statement it’s
another way to influence laws without actually being able to make them finally we have the judicial branch at the top of which is the Supreme Court this is the branch that interprets the
Constitution and deals with court cases about federal laws including deciding what is a law means if one of the other two branches does
something unconstitutional you can usually be blocked in court the courts also decide if a federal law
in an area where the federal and state governments both have
powers overrules those state laws which is
called preemption one example of an overlap is
environmental regulation and of course the courts deal with
federal law in federal crimes in cases just like any
other court even though the Supreme Court is at the
top most cases get resolved way before them the courts are influenced by both of
the other branches because the President appoints judges and they have to be
approved by the Senate but then once the judges are in they’re in
for life so they end up with a lot of independence those are the basics of what the three
branches do and what their powers are and just in time for you to get that head looked at and there you have it
