Another reason why Congress is more powerful than the President is because they have the power to use the Necessary and proper Clause. The Necessary and Proper clause is if Congress feels that a law is needed they will create it and it will hopefully get passed. And without this power that Congress has then laws would not be created or introduced. In the Constitution it reads, ''The Congress shall have the Power to make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper….”( Article 1 Section 8) And even if the President does veto the bill then Congress still has the power of override veto which is an example of the checks and balances system created so Congress can have some power over the President and his decisions.
Congress has more power than the President because Congress has the power to tax, collect taxes and provide money for the military. And if Congress did not give this money to the President then he would not be able to provide the equipment or weapons the military needs to defend our country. And in the Constitution it reads, '' The Congress shall have the Power To lay and collect Taxes…, to pay the Debts and provide for the Common Defense.”(Article 1 section 8)
If the Federalists put federal courts in the states they will have more power with the supremacy clause. The supremacy clause establishes that the federal constitution and federal law takes precedence over states laws and constitutions. This takes away the power that the people have. On page 310 it establishes, ‘’ these courts will eclipse the dignity, and take away from the respectability, of the state courts. These courts will be, in themselves, totally independent of the states, deriving their authority from the United States,....’’
The Federalists will just use their power for their own selfish reasons and not to help the people which is why we need a Bill of Rights so that the federal government does not take our power, we need it to protect our individual liberty and power. And Federalists use the necessary and proper clause to take the power the states once had. The necessary and proper clause allows Congress to pass any law they think should be passed so, this means that the Federalists can pass any law they feel should be passed to benefit themselves.. On page 308 it states, ‘’ that the Congress shall have power to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this constitution, in the government of the United States; or in any department or office thereof.’’
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
