A Constitutional Crisis

MC Escher fishThe budget and the national debt have become a political wedge that threatens to fracture America's constitutional order. Built-in constitutional tension has become dangerously unstable. If there's a potential fix through the electoral process (which I doubt) it's elusive: this crisis has been building for decades. What's clear, though, is that we can't continue to lurch from fiscal cliff-hanger to fiscal cliff-hanger. Indeed, that would be pretty much like having no government at all. To talk about how bad things have gotten I turned to Dr. Louis Fisher, who knows more about American governmental process than most. Thanks, Lou, for your rock solid perspective! Total runtime forty six minutes. Possunt quia posse videntur.
