I’m trying to study for my Political Science course and I need some help to understand this question.
Congress and the executive have checks on one another. At times we see congress influence the executive such as the impeachment hearings or the previous Russia investigations, we have seen vetoes and continued threats of government shutdowns. Are these struggles the sign of a healthy system of checks and balances or a further indication of partisan party politics more than a congress or executive that is looking out for the general population. In your opinion does either the executive branch or legislative branch have too much or too little power compared to the other?
