A Nation Engaged: The Balance Of Power Between Congress And The President

A Balancing Act: Congress and the Presidency. These two branches of government have ways of checking each other’s power and influence – including through the power of the purse, special investigations, the veto, and the bully pulpit. As part of the NPR series, A Nation Engaged, we’ll look at how these have been used in notable ways throughout  American history -- up to the present. 

GUESTS:

  • Chris Galdieri -  Assistant professor of politics at Saint Anselm College, specializing in presidential politics.
  • Dante Scala -  Associate professor of political science at the University of New Hampshire and a fellow at UNH's Carsey School of Public Policy.
