Andrew Golden Mr. Warner Miller AP U.S. Gov’t 19 November 2007 Free Response Questions 1. A. The primary constitutional conflict between Congress and the President over the decision to go to war is that Congress can declare war, while the President is the Commander-In-Chief of the land and naval forces B. There were provisions to the War Powers Resolution that were designed to limit the President’s power over war making. They made it necessary for the President to notify Congress 48 hours before-hand and every 6 months from the start of the war, allowed a 60-day commitment without congressional approval, and stated that Congress could in fact withhold military funding from the President if they viewed that as necessary. C. The War Powers Resolution has received mixed reviews, but Congress has other powers over war making. They include Treaty Ratification, the ability to pass laws dealing with appropriations and authorizations, and the power to raise and regulate the land and naval forces.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
