    A prophetic FDR, 50 years ago

    The conservative epidemic has always had it out for Social Security. Given the latest pension fiasco, Social Security is too important to trust in the market and in the hands of those corporations that rob their employees with immunity. In FDR’s words:
    "Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are [a] few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

    - President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 11/8/54
