Legacy for the 92nd Congress

January 1971
America;1/16/1971, Vol. 124 Issue 2, p34
The author reflects on the 91st session of the U.S. Congress. The dropping of the foreign trade and reform bills along with the failure of the U.S. Senate to pass the Social Security bill was allegedly a result of the falling out between the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representative as well as among the U.S. Senate committees. Allegations hurled by the Senate and in particular by Senator Edward M. Kennedy against House Minority Leader Gerald Ford were mentioned. The author concludes that all unfinished agenda will be tackled in the 92nd Congress.
