To the Editor:
   In 1935, our Supreme Court established ("Schechter Poultry") that no branch of our Federal government can delegate any of its proper powers to another branch. Since, as you observe, it is "Congress’s constitutional responsibility to declare, authorize and allocate funds for wars", it follows that no Authorization for the Use of Military Force can be constitutional. The ball is in Congress' hands to declare war or not. Punting is not an option.
