I think compared to what the framers of the constitution originally intended, the executive branch has increased significantly. It has grown to meet the needs of each President and the people in the country at the time, growing to what it is today. Our framers didn’t specify the number of offices and staff a President could have, leaving the door wide open for the agencies, committees, and boards we have today. I don’t think this is a bad thing.
