President Reagan has made a most undemocratic and shocking statement with reference to his stubborn second attempt to get aid for the contras in Nicaragua. He said, "We have to get where we can run a foreign policy without a committee of 535 telling us what to do."
This is a direct defiance of our system of checks and balances. We must thank our Founding Fathers for creating a balance of power between Congress, the President and the Supreme Court. The President must not be allowed to evade it.
