Write an essay discussing two ways executive power has grown over time. Then discuss the tradeoff in power between the president and congress. Consider some of the following questions: Is greater executive power concerning checks and balances? Is it useful in light of partisan polarization and deadlock in congress? How has the use of executive orders changed over time? What does it mean for checks and balances in the constitution? Support all three points with references to the readings. Cite only the provided articles and BTP, no outside sources.
