    How about civil rights?

    How about workers rights?

    One of the top, yes.  But nothing like ending segregation and giving everyone the vote.

    Fixing all problems take time and not one piece of legislation plugs all the leaks in the ceiling at once.

    Again, we may not get the public option this time around.  (And, again, I think we will.)

    But if we get a lot of the fixes we need then we're making progress and we'll have to deal with premium prices next time around.

    (And I realize that some people will be hurt if we don't fix the price problem this year.  As a matter of fact, I'll be one.)

      Any of that happen in recent history?  How many of those Democrats are still in office?

        to the post to which I was responding.

        There you will find...

        It has been major plank in the Democratic platform in every election since the 1940s.
