The United States Congress Responsibilities!

By Brittany Antonacci May 15, 2020 0 comments


Hello Fellow Americans,

It seems as if we always focus on the president which is certainly not a bad thing, but what about the other crucial parts of the government. Well, today we’re going to be discussing Congress and what it does to keep the United States together.

 

Let’s start off with a general definition:

“The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States and consists of two chambers: The House of Representatives and the Senate. The Congress meets in the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.”

Now let’s go over some of the power that congress has…

 

They Can Make Laws

 

That’s right the United States congress is responsible for making and approving laws—a law simply can not be passed without the approval of both parties in congress.

 

Declare War

 

If there is a consecutive vote between congress, then war can be declared. The only who can supersede a congressional order to declare war without a proper vote is the president.

 

Impeach Federal Officers

 

That’s right, congress oversees any elected official’s impeachment claims and trials (just like the recent one with Trump).

 

Approve Treaties/ Executive Orders

 

Before a treaty or executive order can come to fruition it must be passed by congress and signed off by congress.  

 

Let us know in the comments if you enjoyed learning about the responsibilities that the U.S. Congress holds and maybe we’ll do a part 2.

 

Stay Strong Patriot!!!
