The New Separation of Powers

The New Separation of Powers

The dysfunction in today’s political system would be painful for our Founders.  Under our Constitution, Article I governs the legislative branch, which is charged with passing the laws and ensuring that the executive branch (set up under Article II) follows the rule of law and respects our Constitution. Over the course of our nation’s history, our practice has largely followed the model our Founders had…
