I highly recommend a recent podcast interview from Electric Politics with one of the nation’s leading experts on Congress and the Presidency, Dr. Louis Fisher, who discusses the current budget and national debt crisis. The Byrd Center also has an oral history interview of Fisher on our website that was conducted by the Senate Historian Emeritus, Dr. Richard A. Baker, a member of the Byrd Center’s board of trustees. Fisher’s own website contains an excellent variety of his writings on the Constitution, Congress, and the Presidency. If you are looking for good solid information on Constitutional issues, relations between Congress and the Presidency, war powers, the duties of Congress and the President related to the budget and other issues from one of the top professionals in the nation, you should know about Lou Fisher, his books, articles, congressional testimony, and interviews.
