Summary
"This volume in the My Guide to the Constitution series describes the legislative branch, which some would consider the heart and soul of a democratic government. The founders of the United States of America wanted to avoid giving the president too much power, so they entrusted the legislature with such important duties as raising and spending government money, making laws, and approving or rejecting treaties with foreign countries."--P. [4] of cover
