The Congress Is Back

This week the Congress came back from their summer vacation. But, some might ask, "What is Congress?"
The Congress is part of the legislative branch. The legislative branch is the part of the government that controls the money, makes the laws, and declares war.
The executive branch includes the President and Vice President. The executive branch is the part of the government that enforces laws, spends money if allowed by Congress, declares problems, appoints judges to the Supreme Court, and gives pardons for crimes.
The judicial branch is the branch that includes the Supreme Court. The judicial branch changes view on laws, judges when a law is unconstitutional, and makes plans for prisoners. If you want to learn more about the branches click here.
