The issue of separation of power in the United States has been debated for a long time especially when it comes to the issue of making internal and foreign policies. The initial drafting of the United States constitution provided for separation of power between the legislative (congress), executive (presidency), and the judicial (courts). However throughout the history of the United States, there are many incidences where one branch of government has worked to override the other. The initial draft was supposed to ensure that governance of the country was a shared responsibility between the three arms.
