Ted Kennedy and transportation deregulation

According to just about everybody, Teddy Kennedy represented the “soul” of the Democratic party, which presumably refers to his long-professed concern the poor and the weak.

Left economist Doug Henwood goes on to detail the major role Ted Kennedy played in transportation deregulation, something which directly led to a decline in working class living standards – and decimated the airline industry as well.
