Why was congress unwilling to give the president the power to veto bills?

Congress was not unwilling to give the President the veto power. Certain members of the Constitutional Convention were. Congress, as we know it today, did not write the Constitution. Some Framers of the Constitution did not favor the veto power, fearing it gave the President too much power of the legislative branch. In fact, many Framers felt the President should simply be an agent of the Congress subject to its direction and control.

What were the major conflicts of the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 and how were they resolved?

Most delegates were acting under direct instructions from their states to repair the Articles of Confederation. The concept of creating a new government under a constitution was something that many were ill prepared to work on. A major problem was keeping a sufficient number of delegates on hand to actually pass an agreement on anything. The big state versus small state issues on representation were a constant point of argument. There were at this convention many of the great thinkers of early American History and many of them were unwilling to compromise on any issue.

Who are the next 5 people in line after the president?

If the U. S. President dies, resigns or is removed from office, the Vice President immediately becomes the President. If there is no Vice President at that time, the Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives becomes the President. If there is no House Speaker at that time, or if the House Speaker is unable, unwilling or not qualified to be President, the President Pro Tempore of the U. S. Senate, who is by tradition the most senior member of the majority party of the Senate, becomes President. If there is no Senate President Pro Tem at that time, or if he/she is unable, unwilling or not qualified to be President, the U. S. Secretary of State becomes President. If there is no Secretary of State at that time, or if he/she is unable, unwilling or not qualified to be President, the U. S. Treasury Secretary becomes President (if qualified, willing and able). Whoever becomes President appoints a Vice President after taking office. That person takes office after both houses of Congress approve the appointment.
