Do our Presidents have too much or not enough power? Why or why not?

A

The president has limited powers because Congress regulates the same. The president cannot make a ruling without first consulting with the Senate or Congress. Congress has the powers to vet presidential decrees whether they are constitutional or not. Unlike the current president, in the previous governments, presidents had much power in that a presidential decree became a law automatically. Since there are three arms of government, the executive, the judiciary, and the Congress, that functions cooperatively, it is constitutional that all the arms of the government should work harmoniously in defending the constitution. The Congress and the judiciary are the two forces that check the powers of the president and the application of the constitution. Although the president has executive powers, the powers are subject to the approval of Congress and the judiciary. Thus presidents have limited powers. If the president had too much power, then no one would dare vet any presidential decree.
