seems to me to be an ap
propriate time to evaluate its
work.
Earlier this year, when
Congress convened, Speaker
Carl Albert told the Nation
that his majority party had a
mandate from the people to
assume national leadership.
Any fair evaluation of this
Congress must use his
statement as a standard for
judging its performance.
The question then is this:
Has Congress provided
leadership? The record is
subject to personal in
terpretations based on
political considerations, but
the sum total of legislative
leadership exercised so far is
pretty dismal.
It took the House of
Representatives six months
to pass an energy bill (that’s
just in this Congress since
Administration energy
proposals have been on
Capitol Hill since 1973). The
bill passed was so watered
down that no one can call it a
comprehensive program to

meet a very serious energy
crisis. I voted for the bill in
hopes that it will be a vehicle
for further, more responsible
action, but in the energy field
Congress has not been a
leader.
In the area of economic
policy Congress passed a tax
rebate program. You can
judge for yourself whether it
was an example of
responsible leadership.
There have been other
measures which cleared
Capitol Hill only to end up
vetoed by the President.
Each of those vetoes has
caused a storm of protest
from the majority party on
Capitol Hill, but the fact
remains that the legislation
was so irresponsible that
they could not override the
vetoes even with their two to
one majorities in both houses
of Congress. Evidently they
believed their own talk about
a “veto-'proof Congress”,
and thought they could push
by nearly any program no
matter what the cost. In
refusing to accept legislative
realities, they are not
exercising much leadership.
Some members of the
majority are beginning to
recognize the lack of
leadership and are starting

to do some complaining
about it. But this intra-party
squabbling, no matter how
plausible, is further
paralyzing the hopes of
getting Congress to act on
important national matters.
A legitimate question
might be why the minority
party on Capitol Hill is not
moving to fill the leadership
void created by the majority.
The simple answer is that
the majority in most in
stances refuses to consider
the minority positions in
their drafting of legislation.
In those areas where we can
act, we have. For instance,
we took the historic action of
opening our party caucus to
public view by permitting
press coverage of our
deliberations.
But Congress cannot begin
to lead until there is some
recognition that leadership
involves responsibility as
well as rivalry. So far all
Congress has done is
criticize a President with
whom they do not happen to
agree politically, but have
offered no sign that they can
provide reasonable atler
natives.
