The Executive Branch
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 The executive branch carries out the laws made by Congress. The president is the leader of this branch of our government. To get the job done, the president needs help. This help comes from the three parts of the executive branch — the Executive Office of the President, the Cabinet, and the independent agencies.
2 The Executive Office of the President works directly with the president. There are several different departments that work within the Executive Office.
3 The first is the White House Office. The people that work here have their offices in the White House. Led by the Chief of Staff, they compose speeches, compile reports, give the president advice, and take care of the White House. The Chief of Staff is the most influential person in this office. The Chief controls the president's schedule and decides who gets to see the president.
