Keith, Robert
"The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, occurred as the federal government was half way through FY1942. Congress and the President immediately responded by enacting into law declarations of war against Japan, Germany, and Italy, in which the President was directed to prosecute the war to its successful conclusion and Congress pledged 'all of the resources of the country' to the effort. [...] President Roosevelt did not seek, and Congress did not provide, a 'blank check' for war spending. Instead, the President made specific requests for funds, which Congress dealt with through the usual annual appropriations process."
