A Classic Democratic Speech
Reviewer LOLDavid
 February 17, 2006
In this speech Mario Cuomo criticizes Ronald Reagan for his view that all Americans are basking in the wealth of the free market. Cuomo reminds us of the have nots and how it is the job of the Democratic Party to remember those that aren't in the upper crust of society and to put forth government policy that protects these weak and poor in society. The Democrats are in need of the same sort of rhetoric today as the rich get richer. Cuomo also speaks for minorities and women's rights. A great speech for anyone looking to see what is at the heart of Democratic ideals.
