Quote of the Day

Can you imagine an American President saying this:
The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

That's what the Democratic Party should be saying but isn't.

Nice quote, but actually, I think it's only what the Democratic party should be saying. The Republican party is known to represent the wealthiest people in America. For the Republicans to represent their base by dumping money to the rich is their job. Admittedly, I disagree with their goals, but I can accept that it's what they're supposed to do.

If he hasn't already, GW will probably quote it with approval the next time he tries to gut Social Security.

Indeed, Marcus. How GW can continue to claim the "compassionate conservative" label given what he's done is beyond me. The public just refuses to hold rhetoric accountable to policy.
