An enchanted evening.

Posted Mar 21 2010 10:29pm
There are no words to express how proud I am of my elected leaders who helped make health care reform a reality. Ineffable. I thought someone made an excellent point in a comment I found on one of the hundreds of articles I’ve scanned through over the past week and I wanted to share
Did any of these passed without opposition?
- Emancipation Proclamation by Lincoln

- Women’s suffrage by Wilson

- Lend/Lease by FDR

- Desegregation of the military by Truman

- Civil Rights Act by Johnson

Who would stand against those today?
