The 3 Branches of Government
By: Braxton Lewis & Emily Farmer
How It All Got Started
The Judicial Branch is made up of all the Supreme Court and all the other federal courts. Their job is to decide whether the laws are constitutional. There are 9 justices in the Supreme Court one of them is called the Chief Justice. This is the highest court in the land they meet in Washington D.C.
Checks & Balances
Checks & Balances were made to make sure the government never gets too strong in one branch. For example; the Congress can send out a bill. Next the President can veto that bill. Then if 2 thirds of the Congress votes they should un-veto that bill they will, which is a check. Here's another example; Congress can't make laws without the Presidents review, and the President needs Congress to make the laws he wants, this is a balance.
