The Founding Fathers wanted to form a government that didn't allow one person to have too much control. With this in mind, the framers wrote the Constitution to provide separation of powers, or three separate branches of government; the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branch.

The Legislative Branches main job is to
make laws
. Their job is assigned by the Constitution. This branch helps sustain the principle of
checks and balances
. Other jobs of the legislative branch are to manage the governments budget, make presidential appointment's, create foreign treaties, and
declare war
.
Jobs of the Legislative Branch
The Legislative Branch has the job of managing the
budget
of the United States. Without this job, the way we would spend our money would spiral out of control, and our country would not have one of the best financial systems in the world.
Creating Laws
The Executive Branch executes laws and has the power to
veto
them as well. The Executive Branch also has the
authority and responsibility
for the daily administration of the state.
Veto
-to
reject
a proposal made by a law making body.
