Hello Fellow American,
As you all know the United States is a well oiled machined containing many intricate parts to operate as smoothly as possible. And some of those parts, more specifically the Senate, have unique powers to better perform their job and run the country properly.
Now that I have you wondering what these powers may be, we’re here to give you answers. So, let’s not waste any more time and get started on….
Special Senate Powers
They Approve Appointments
That’s right, the Senate approves appointed positions like the president’s cabinet, supreme court justices, and high rank military officers.
You guessed it, the Senate is in charge of many foreign affairs and keeping the peace between the U.S. and other entities through treaties.
The Senate elects the president if The House of Representatives is unable to form an electoral college vote.
Hold Impeachment Cases
Although the House of Representatives hold the power of impeaching government officials, the Senate is the branch of government that conducts the entire impeachment case.
So, now that you know some of the nerve racking powers the Senate holds, do you have a newfound respect for the Senators who represent your country? Let us know in the comments and maybe we’ll include you in the next blog!
See You Later Patriot!!!
