On Teddy Kennedy's Passing

Everybody is stumbling over themselves talking about what a great man Teddy Kennedy was, how he was the big champion of health care for all, etc. They seem to forget that it was Teddy Kennedy that put a stopper on health care for all, and other progressive ideas, in 1980. It was Teddy Kennedy that gave us Ronald Reagan and the "Greed Is Good And Poor People Suck" philsosphy of government we've had to live with ever since. Teddy Kennedy could have easily gotten health care for all during Jimmy Carter's second term, but because of Teddy Kennedy's ego there was no second term for Jimmy Carter.
