Senator Ted Kennedy's rant at the Republicans over raising the minimum wage

This is why Ted Kennedy was named the LION OF THE SENATE. Say what you will about Democrats or Republicans, this man fought for those less fortunate. He was born with remarkable wealth but spent his life fighting for the little guy - the working men and women of the United States of America.

Our great country was built with the hands and on the backs and with the toil of the average guy, the working stiff, the immigrants - not by CEOs or corporate presidents. Senator Kennedy knew that and he honored those people - always.

Unfortunately the Kennedy's always carry the footnote of their "mis-steps" both private & public. I wish the many were as forgiving as they would wish for themselves...

I think with all the corruption that has come to light in the world in recent years we should be thankful that we had Sen. Kennedy & people like him!!

RIP Sen. Kennedy

Teddy will be missed. The dreams go on, I wonder if they will ever come true.
