  •  Republicans are so beyond hating FDR (7+ / 0-)

    They've moved on to hating Woodrow Wilson, their current bête noire.

    That means that not only do they want to repeal the New Deal; they want to do away with Wilson's relatively modest New Freedom legislation, which was primarily concerned with breaking up the huge corporate agglomerations that dominated government and saw unfettered exploitation of all resources, natural and human, as their unquestionable right.

    That includes, of course, the right to exploit workers without considering their health and safety.  It seems that Republicans no longer accept that workers have any rights which the business owner is bound to respect.
