Like Overtime Pay, Minimum Wage, Women's Vote? Thank Democrats

So today we're being told that Obama's healthcare plan is losing support. Well, let's remember, at least HE HAD ONE. As a matter of fact, many, if not most, of the ideas that have made our country great came from the Democratic side of the aisle, even if not as whole cloth at first.

Let's commit a short list of these to memory for the next time someone starts being snide about politics and Democrats in particular. Maybe they have even benefited from one or two of these programs:

• Women's Suffrage Amendment
• Securities and Exchange Act
• Social Security Act
• Unemployment compensation
• Rural Electrification Act
• Federal Home Loan Program
• Minimum Wage
• Overtime
That's a mouthful. Watch for Part 2 of this list next week.
