The vice president of the United States is the second-highest officer in the executive branch of the U.S. federal government, after the president of the United States. The vice president is also an officer in the legislative branch, as president of the Senate. In this capacity, the vice president is empowered to preside over Senate deliberations, but may not vote except to cast a tie-breaking vote. The vice president also presides over joint sessions of Congress.
