Did Sen. Ted Kennedy help business with his legislative successes?

Posted 8/31/09

The death of U.S. Sen. Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy last week after a long illness allowed his many supporters the chance to say goodbye, something that was not afforded to his brothers, President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

But the illness also allowed the senator to keep working on what he viewed as the last great piece of legislation that he could get accomplished – health care reform.

In fact, Kennedy left a long list of legislative successes, including the creation of Medicare and Medicaid, among other things.

While there can be no question that progressives view his legacy as one of the greatest of any senator, will the business community see it the same way?
