Best Answer

Laws are passed by a majority vote which means over half. In Congress, only half the members need to be present to constitute a quorum, so in theory, a law can be passed by a quarter of Congress.

The power of veto is this type of vote. It breaks the tie in the Senate. This thus gives the majority to each to which the Vice President's party is responsible for.

How many new laws are passed in America every year by the president?

None. The President of the United States does not pass laws, that is the job of the legislative branch. The President has the ability to veto laws that the Congress has passed, but he can be over ruled by a 2/3rds majority. ---- Actually, it is the Presidential act of signing a bill passed by Congress that transforms that bill into law. It is emphatically the province of the President to pass laws and not Congress. What the Congress passes are bills, which have no legal authority unless passed by the President, or unless Congress over rules a Presidential veto with a 2/3 super majority vote. As to your original question, the number of laws passed in America probably varies year to year.
