Main Street Elephant: Voters Call for FDR Revolution to Fix Economy

To hell with Wall Street, remember Hoover's Bank rescue attempts? They all went belly up within 12 months anyway. It wasn't until FDR called a bank holiday, took over homeowner loans and created millions of jobs via WPA infrastructure programs that we finally pulled out of the depression. It was jobs and debt relief for the average American then, and that's what we need now.

The time is ripe, folks. Democrats must start acting like Democrats, and take full advantage of a progressive majority in both houses. And Barack Obama should lead the charge.
