Fabiola Santiago’s astute Sept. 28 column, Ted-I-am might like green eggs and ham, regarding Sen. Ted Cruz’s feeble attempt to filibuster, including reciting Green Eggs and Ham, so that Obamacare wouldn’t receive funding reminds me of how the same type of visionless and ignorant lawmakers tried to sabotage FDR’s Social Security plan.
I have yet to hear or read about a Republican tearing up their Social Security check to protest what the party had labeled at the time as communism. Ignorance breeds fear, and there are many special interests that have and will continue to help the fear mongers in making sure Obamacare doesn’t move forward.
Ten years from now, I suspect the majority of Republicans will be grateful that the president, just like FDR, did not waver.
