Warburg Speaks on Congress and Foreign Policy as 'Top of Mind' Podcast Guest

On Julie Rose's "Top of Mind" podcast, Batten Professor Gerry Warburg explores why Congress leaves it to presidents to expand America's global conflicts. 

Gerry Warburg is a professor of practice of public policy at the Batten School.

America cannot go to war unless Congress authorizes it, but Congress has rarely taken a vote to start and end a war. Usually, this decision is left up to presidents. 

Why aren’t members of Congress taking a lead in making these decisions? Batten Professor Gerry Warburg discusses the wars America has entered into without the express approval of Congress, how Congressional power has been abused, and why members of Congress want to avoid being responsible for tough votes.
