THE VICE-PRESIDENT’S JOB

In response to several letters we received, Lipstick Piggy will attempt to answer the question, “What is the Job of the Vice-President of the United States of America?”

The Vice-President is the first person in the presidential line of succession should the President of the United States be unable to perform their elected duties due to death, resignation or removal from office.   She would serve out the balance of the President’s elected term. 

The Vice-President also serves at the President of the Senate.  The President of the Senate has no vote in the Senate unless there is a need to break a tie vote.    Since 1789, 244 tie-breaking votes have been cast.  Most recently, Richard Cheney with 8 votes, Albert Gore, Jr with 4 votes.

Who else is in the presidential line of succession?

Following the Vice-President in order are:

  • Speaker of the House of Representatives – Nancy Pelosi
  • President pro tempore of the Senate – Robert Byrd

 

WHAT’S AN EARMARK?

Congressional provisions that allows Congress to circumvent the merit-based or competitive allocation process or otherwise curtails the ability of the Executive Branch (the President) to properly manage funds and maintain the approved budget.  This is done through appropriation and authoriation bills.
