Branch of government that passes laws?

Legislative BranchA:The legislative branch is responsible for creating and passing laws. However, the president has the authority to veto any laws, which prevents them from passing. the legislative creates the laws and bills and it is then sent to the president he may pass or veto it the legislative branch then may over turn the veto with a 2/3's vote


The president can do two things to the bill passed congress what are they?

veto it or pass it. 2nd Answer: Good answer, but the president can also simply not veto or sign it, but let it just sit there. Here's how it works: The President has 10 days, not counting Sundays to sign or veto a bill. If (s)he does neither and Congress is in session, the bill then passes just as if (s)he signed it. If (s)he does neither, and Congress is out of session, even if the President already has the bill, then the bill fails. This is called a 'pocket veto'. (Put the bill in your pocket and forget about it.)


Can the congress overpower the president?

Yes, they can with enough votes they can override a veto. The Constitution established the principle of federalism, a dividing and sharing of powers and the principle of separation of powers and checks and balances. Each branch has its own powers and can check the powers of the other two branches. Congress has powers to check the executive branch, by overriding a veto,as noted above, as one example. Congress may enact legislation the President does not want and may pass it over his veto but the President may also use the "pocket veto" in which case the congress is not in session at the end of ten days the President has to sign or veto a bill, and then the bill does not become law. The Congress may not overpower the Executive Branch by the use of force.

What does the executive branch do with United States government laws?

The Goverment is the leader of the Executive Branch. He is the one that has the last say in passing or vetoing laws. However if the President veto's it the Judicial Branch can overpower him. If you want the wide view, the Executive Branch enforces the laws.In point of fact, the President is the leader of the Executive branch. He may either sign a bill into law or he may veto it. If he does chose to veto it, the veto may be overridden by a 3/4 majority of the Senate, which is part of the legislative branch. The Judicial branch has nothing whatsoever to do with the process of law making. It concerns itself only with the consequences of that process.

Does the US Congress make or suggest laws?

The President suggests laws, and Congress makes laws. A President can stop a bill from becoming a law (that's called a veto), but it can become a law anyway if at least 2/3 of each house of Congress vote in favor of it (that's called overriding the veto).A President may not legally decide which federal laws he/she will enforce and which he/she will not enforce. (Regarding the question of why we keep allowing him to do so, I don't have the answer to that.)


How can constitutional governments be organized to prevent the abuse of power?

The Constitution is Law. The Legislative(Congress) branch makes law. The Executive(President) branch sets the agenda to which laws that will be discussed in the Legislative. The Judiciary(Supreme Court) determines it's constitutionality.
