That would never work due to the individual states giving up a lot of there authority to a central .gov. I would hate that, for one it move our local powers further away from the people. Its much easier to get something done in local .gov then federally.. Also its not how the US was formed. We are a republic. We will remain a republic.
Legislatures called parliaments operate under a parliamentary system of government in which the executive is constitutionally answerable to the parliament. This can be contrasted with a presidential system, on the model of the United States' congressional system, which operate under a stricter separation of powers whereby the executive does not form part of, nor is appointed by, the parliamentary or legislative body.
