How many branches of government does the United States have, what are their names, and why is this separation of powers important?
The United States has three branches of government, the legislative, the judicial, and the executive branches. The legislative branch is the Congress, the judicial branch is the Supreme Court and the executive branch is the President. The separation of the powers provides a system of checks and balances with our government that prevents any one of the three powers from becoming too powerful. This separation helps to maintain the freedoms established in the Constitution by ensuring that the government does not become too powerful.
