What president greatly expanded presidential power?

Andrew Jackson expanded presidential power by using the veto more often. Before him, presidents only used the veto if they believed a bill passed by Congress to be unconstitutional and issued few vetoes. Jackson vetoed bills that he believed were bad for the country and so very vetoed many more. He also stood up to the Supreme Court and sometimes ignored their decisions.

How does the Constitution keep the three parts of government from getting too much power?

The constitution keeps the power evenly distributed between the three branches of government by using a system of checks and balances. This basically means that if one branch is exceeding the limits of power, another branch can "check" it. For example; if a president (the executive branch) is gaining too much power and enacting unfair laws, congress (the legislative branch) can vote to impeach the president or something like that and "check" the president's power. Likewise, if congress exceeds its limits, the judicial branch can declare a bill or law unconstitutional and check the power of congress. Each branch has a little power over the other, which balances the power.Hope this helps (:

Why might the president give an executive order rather than create a new law?

Presidents can offer directives about something they already have power over, but one reason that a president might issue an executive order is to get around congress, and not be subject to the normal checks and balances built into our government. Congress makes new laws... the president cannot. In the past, several presidents have been criticized for using executive orders to take more power than they should have.
