Re: The American Way of Equality

[Submitted to the New York Times re: Re: The American Way of Equality 1/14/2007]

David Brooks complains in his column, The American Way of Equality (1/14/2007), that all the Democrats have done in the first few hours of congressional majority is to “push through a series of small proposals.”  He is disingenuous: even these “small pebbles” he decries have been blocked for years by Republicans and 70 - 80% of Americans want them, which only shows how awfully Republicans have governed and how appropriately the Democrats are starting out; (2) these are only the first few backlogged things out of the gate -- good governance means a longer period to develop comprehensive legislation, and (3) these are in fact positions the Democrats campaigned on.
