The United States government is made up of various national, state, and local governing bodies. Certain responsibilities, like the building of interstate roadways, are looked after by the national, or federal, government, whereas more local issues are often overseen by local government bodies like state legislatures or city councils. Some people contend that the federal government is too large and is unresponsive to the particular needs of states and cities and would thus like to see local government overtake many of the responsibilities now delegated to the federal government. Others argue that states and cities in the United States wield too much power, power that they believe should belong in the hands of the federal government. Respond.
