Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ______________ Wednesday, 4, 1972 THE LETHURIDGE HERAID 11 RALPH NADER Congress 11 S U WASHINGTON (AP) Ralph Nader released Tuesday first volume of what he promised will be an encyclo- pedic study of the United Stales Congress, declaring it the "great American default." "The White House and the president are emerging in the United States as a new kind of monarchy." said Nader in a news conference heralding the release of a paperback Ijook en- titled. Who Runs Congress? The President, Big Business or You? The over-all conclusion of the book is that the president and hig blsiness dominate Con- gress, but the people could con- trol it if they would lobby their congressmen vigorously, vote out the bad ones and hold the others accountable. "But until they do so, the proud lords of legislation can frolic in the pool, sleep quietly at their desk, vote themselves pork-barrel legislation, accept the money of special interests, capitulate to the president, ob- struct important legislation, and be reassured by the knowl- edge that it is extremely un- likely that these pleasures and powers will ever be taken away." says the book. In his news conference, Na- der answered the who-runs-Con- gress question this ysy: "We are in the vidst of a serious constitutional crisis. Congress under the Constitution is really the pre-eminent branch. Unfortunately Con- gress has abdicated its respon- sibilities to powerful committee chairmen, executive bureau- c r a c y and special-interest groups." REGAIN GOVERNMENT The book is just a small part of a planned series of 20 to 30 volumes, involving the work of more than volunteers and nearly Nader said the series is intended as a tool to enable citizens to recap- ture control of government. Nader proposed that Con- gress begin recapturing its power by schedulding a special session for late 1973 to tackle one issue: congressional re- form. The book, published at si.95 by Banf-am, is written by Mark J. Green, Barnes M. Fellows ar.d David Xwick. all prod- ucts of Harvard University or its law school. The project also includes profiles of 488 senators and con- are published at each by Grossman, with discounts for quantity. Tlie profiles arc based in part on 96-page questionnaires sub- mitted to every senate' and congressman. At least a dozen refused to fill them out, and others would answer only some of the G33 questions. Representative Clarence J. Brown (Tlcp.-Ohio) said the ref- erence tn him in the volume contains 21 errors, induing the allegation that he owns a radio station in his rlisHct while serving on the communications .-.nbcnmmittee of the House of Representatives commerce commil'ee. ACTION'S EXPLAINED Brown, in a House speech, said he sold the station [wo years ago, Ihe earliest oppor- tunity he had to do so after coming to Congress. He said he explained the transactions fully in an interview with a Nader staffer.
