How do the branches check on each other?
- The Legislative Branch checks the Executive by passing laws over the President's veto and removing him/her from office.
- The Executive Branch checks the Judicial Branch by nominating judges.
- The Judicial Branch can checks the Legislative Branch by declaring laws unconstitutional.
Federalism was made to set limits on each branch's power. The people who believed the United Stated would not survive without a strong central government were called Federalists. They believed in federalism. They believed that federal law should be Supreme over state law
Why is it important?
These three goals were made to keep the branches equal but not always separate. It still is important today because it helps the government stay equal, and not have too much power. It also helps all of us as a country by keeping us with a fair government.
