“...how can we live in the richest, most privileged country in the world, at the peak of its economic performance, and still hear the Republicans, and too many Democrats, that we cannot afford to provide a good education for every child, that we cannot afford to provide health security for all our citizens?”
Paul Wellstone, The Conscience of a Liberal: Reclaiming the Compassionate Agenda
