Will Democrats never learn?

November 01, 2010

In 1929, Will Rogers wrote that the trouble with Democrats is that they give the people what they think they ought to have instead of what they want.

They haven't changed. Since then they gave us Social Security, Medicare and equal voting rights, right up to the present with Obama health care reform plan.

Republicans have given us two depressions and the Bush tax cuts, with the middle class picking up the bill, and they have fought against every Democratic program.

Will those Democrats ever learn?
