Is Congress more powerful than the President?

Asked by: Juris
  • It's textbook of course....

    The way that our particular government was built simply outlines in many ways that...
    Congress > POTUS
    ...Whether that's a good thing or bad...
    However at most times, like now, it looks as is more like...
    (Congress - POTUS) + Special Interest > POTUS
    As Congress won't synergize with the President and is biased by materials and short term self interest.

  • It's just textbook

    Of course, that's just how this particular system of government was built/constructed. Congress > POTUS. However now we have an equation closer to (Congress - President) * (Special Interest) > President meaning that our President can't synergize with Congress as Congress holds, uh, interesting views on ways to interpret our Constitution.

  • More power than president

    I'm a 12 year old in crystal rivermiddleschool.Ive been learning in civics about the government how they run and do things.So far I've learned that in my opinion that congress has more power than the president.For example congress can declare war on a state and send troops while the president can only send troops and they have to come back in 60 days and has to tell congress of the action.To me it sounds like congress is in charge.If the president does something congress knows and can deflect it or accept it.

    So in my opinion congress is more powerful than the president

  • Most learn the hard way

    Congress has enough power to make the President look bad . They have a really deep bag of tricks to rely on if he/she steps on the wrong toes. The White House is no different from any other workplace that size. One giant soap opera with the usual clique's that have all the power.

  • They can do a lot more

    Just look only congress has the power to expel members of the senate. They can even remove the president. If you are talking about a single person from congress or the president then yes the president is stronger. Together however they can if they see necessary even Veto the president`s veto. They indeed are the most powerful.

  • It used to be

    At one time. The Congress was the most powerful branch as it controlled the power of the purse. Which means anything the President of the UNITED STATES tried to push which required funds, could be denied. Now however, our Congress has given up the power of the purse and is really and truly just a waste of time.

  • The president is more powerful as head of the largest branch of government.

    The president is the commander in chief of the military, can engage in limited armed conflict without the approval of congress, can write executive orders, and is the head of the Executive branch which does most of the government spending. True, congress passes the budget (with input from the president's budget and his signature), but the president has some leeway in how it is spent. Example: Obama canceled Constellation and created the Commercial Launch program instead.

  • Because of Executive Orders the President is More Powerful than Congress

    Ideally the three branches of government (legislative, executive and judicial) are separate and equal branches of government. One should not, by design, be more powerful than the others. However, due to the use of Executive Orders, the presidential branch essentially has the power to create law, which should only be a function of the legislative branch.
