The war powers act of 1941 was passed by Congress allowing the President to assume more power in building a military fleet to send overseas. This was because of the attack on Pearl Harbor as well as many other preceding factors. Previous attempts such as the Ludlow amendment would have called a national referenda to declare war. The 1941 war powers act ultimately was a declaration of war against the axis powers, notably Germany and Japan.

The War Powers Act of 1941 was never repealed. It was followed up by the War Powers Act of 1943 and then limited by the War Powers Resolution of 1973. Should it be repealed? Yes. It clearly contradicts the text of the constitution that states that it is Congress' responsibility to enter hostilities.

During the Second World War, the US Congress raised the top marginal tax rates, to help pay for the war. An example of a law is the War Powers Act of 1941, which was passed in the aftermath of the Pearl Harbor attack.

The War Powers Act was created in 1973 and limited the president's capabilities to declare war. The effects of this act provided Congress with the ability to create limitations on the amount of time that troops could be in a war zone without their approval.

Richard Nixon vetoed the War Powers Act in 1973 because he believed it gave too much power to the Congress. He believed the president needed some war powers to be able to quickly protect the nation in the event of hostilities.
