POWER (Social sciences), UNITED States. Congress. Senate, UNITED States. Congress, CAESARISM, LEGISLATION, UNITED States -- Politics government, and UNITED States
The article reveals the working of the U.S. Congress. It describes the U.S. Congress as an incurable mess. Its committees grind out piecemeal or contradictory legislation dealing with festering domestic problems. All rules and procedures of the U.S. Senate and the House exacerbate the problem by fragmenting the legislative agendas. These disabilities have generated a set of power relationships that has debilitated the U.S. Congress and increased the susceptibility of the Presidency to "Caesarism." However, there's some hope to be found in this deplorable situation.

DEMOCRATIC Party (U.S.), LIBERALISM, UNITED States -- Politics government, UNITED States. Congress, POLITICAL doctrines, and UNITED States
This article discusses the scenario in the U.S. Democratic Party. The U.S. Congress, which Senator Joseph Clark calls the sapless branch, is not quite dead. The rebels of the Left are weak, but they are more unified and determined than is generally believed. One influence that helps weld them together is their awareness that the counterbalance of dissent is more than ever needed in the U.S. administration. For years Texas liberals have contended that U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson displays the classic attitude of one who, if he were in a position to indulge the dark side of his nature would be something of a jefe.
UNITED States federal budget, BUDGET deficits, ACT of state, ACCOUNTING methods, UNITED States. Congress, and UNITED States
The Budget and Accounting Procedures Act of 1950, It is the policy of the U.S. Congress that the accounting of the government provide "full disclosure of the results of financial operations, adequate financial information needed in the management of operations and the formulation and execution of the Budget, and effective control over income, expenditures, funds, property, and other assets according to the Budget and Accounting Procedures Act of 1950. Despite that general policy, it has been estimated that, in a budget for fiscal 1972 of U.S. $229.2 billion, secret funds may amount to U.S. $15 billion to U.S. $20 billion.
UNITED States. Congress, CAPITALISM, ECONOMICS, UNITED States -- Politics government, LEGISLATION, and UNITED States
For the eighty-eighth time since the adoption of the Constitution, a new Congress is in session. In recent years, the time of meeting of a new Congress has usually been marked by an exceptional number of journalistic appraisals of our legislation and their performance. Only in the U.S. were these elites faced with the real danger that they might be under mined or even overthrown by constitutional and democratic means that a mass political party, committed to a severe modification or even abolition of industrial capitalism, might organize a majority coalition with fatal results to themselves.
UNITED States. Congress, EISENHOWER, Dwight D. (Dwight David), 1890-1969, VETERANS, UNITED States -- Politics government, and UNITED States
The character of the Eighty-third U.S. Congress will depend largely on a relatively small number of voters in the "marginal" or doubtful Northern, Middle Western and Far Western states. One obvious way to assay the next Congress is to consider the assortment of character assassins, know-nothings and reactionaries who will have been elected if presidential candidate Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Republicans gain complete control of the government. Another is to look at the men who will hold the committee chairmanships. No matter who wins, most of the committees will be headed by weary old veterans, selected under the seniority system, whose temper is unfriendly to the New Deal.
INTELLECTUALS -- United States, CONFERENCES conventions, PARTICIPATION, UNITED States -- Politics government, CUBA, and UNITED States
Quite in advance of its opening session on January 4, the Havana Cultural Congress, a meeting of intellectuals of the world on the problems of Asia, Africa and Latin America, was judged by the State Department to be a spurious propagandistic device and out of bounds for U.S. intellectuals. Though there was considerable interest here in attending the Congress, through a combination of Cuban inefficiency in getting the invitations out in time and State Department shenanigans, the presence of a number of prestigious U.S. intellectuals was effectively discouraged. In the end, those who were lucky enough to obtain both a Cuban invitation and State Department validation to travel to Cuba, were required to sign an affidavit promising that they would not "participate in any meeting, convention, conference or other function while in Cuba, as a public speaker, delegate or other participant."

FOREIGN relations of the United States, CHINA -- Foreign relations, DULLES, John Foster, 1888-1959, FOREIGN ministers (Cabinet officers), CHINA, and UNITED States
The world watches the march of events in the Straits of Formosa, awaiting the decision for war or peace that lies in the hands of three men, Mao Tse-tung in Peiping, Chiang Kai-shek in Taipei and John Foster Dulles, U.S. Secretary of State, in Washington. These events demonstrate that the U.S. Constitution, which places the power to declare war in the U.S. Congress, has been superseded in some respects by events and in others by design. It was events beyond the control of Congress that put Mao Tse-tung in power on the Chinese mainland and paired him off against Chiang Kai-shek on Formosa, but it is design abetted by apathy that has turned over to the Secretary of State the determination of what the United States shall do for its defense and when it shall do it.
