Stop the con­gres­sional power grab

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Our Con­sti­tu­tion spells out the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and roles for each of the three branches of gov­ern­ment: Ex­ec­u­tive, Ju­di­ciary and Leg­isla­tive. There has been a change over the years mainly by the Democrats and Lib­er­als, not re­ally un­der the radar but in a sub­tle way. The Supreme Court has taken ac­tions that were the rights of Congress and have also stripped the Pres­i­dent and the Ex­ec­u­tive branch of pow­ers that were granted by pre­vi­ous Supreme Court de­ci­sions based on the Con­sti­tu­tion.

The Demo­crat-led Congress is do­ing its ut­most to limit the Con­sti­tu­tional pow­ers of the Pres­i­dent and the Ex­ec­u­tive branch. It is time that the Supreme Court and Con- gress be made ac­count­able for their ac­tions that clearly im­pinge on the author­ity and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of the other branches.

I be­lieve Pres­i­dent Bush should be sup­ported in his at­tempt to clar­ify and de­fend the roles of each branch of our gov­ern­ment. Es­pe­cially by Repub­li­cans, some of them hav­ing joined the Democrats in be­ing crit­i­cal of the pres­i­dent. Their crit­i­cism is in­ap­pro­pri­ate and this is a se­ri­ous prob­lem that needs to be ad­dressed be­fore more harm is done to our coun­try and Con­sti­tu­tion. Marvin L.
