The real Ted Kennedy legacy

The real Ted Kennedy legacy:
“Economist Milton Friedman was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee in favor of a national constitutional amendment for a balanced budget. Kennedy argued that a requirement for a balanced budget would restrict the federal government’s power and its ability to spend – thus, he said, Washington’s role in more fairly and equitably distributing wealth, goods and services.

‘Senator, socialism hasn’t worked in 6,000 years of recorded history,’ explained Friedman. ‘Why won’t you give up on it?’

Kennedy rose to his feet, according to Nuttle, who attended the hearing, and replied: ‘It hasn’t worked in 6,000 years of recorded history because it didn’t have me to run it.’”

What an evil self serving jerk. Communism can work with the right leadership??? Wonder how that’s working out for him now.
