Midterm Exam 2. Discuss the Constitutional basis of Federalism to include enumerated, implied,
Inherent, and concurrent powers.
The primary institutional feature of the U.S. Constitution was a political system in which state governments share power with the national government; this political system is called federalism. As opposed to a unitary system in which the central government holds most of the power, or a confederation in which the regional governments hold the majority of the power, a federalist system divides the power between a central government and regional governments.
The powers that each government has were given to them by the Constitution.
The powers granted to the national government by the Constitution are the enumerated powers, the implied powers, and the inherent powers.


Enumerated Powers.
The enumerated powers were directly written in the U.S.
Constitution, and they can be found in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution.

The powers for the general welfare include, the power to levy taxes, to borrow money, to regulate international and interstate commerce, to coin money, and to make laws necessary to enforce the
