United States Cabinet Department


United States Cabinet Department is composed of the 15 appointed officers of the United States Executive Branch of the United States federal government, who are generally the heads of the United States Federal Executive Departments.

United States Cabinet Department members are nominated by the President of the United States of America and then presented to the United States Senate for confirmation or rejection by a simple majority (although, before use of the "nuclear option" during the 113th US Congress, they could have been blocked by filibuster, requiring cloture to be invoked by 3/5 supermajority to further consideration).

If approved, they are sworn in and then begin their duties. Aside from the United States Attorney General, and the Postmaster General when it was a Cabinet office, they all receive the title of Secretary.

United States Cabinet Department Members serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States of America; the President of the United States of America may dismiss or reappoint them (to other posts) at will.
