5. It appears too many Democrats drank the Reagan Kool Aid.
It has been the Goal of the Republican Party Conservative
Movement to get rid of any vestiges of the New Deal, and
Johnson's war on Poverty.

I must assume since the Democrats on the Hill are mute
on the subject, they believe more Reagan than FDR.

This will be their demise and ruin the country, but
who cares any more.
