Let Us Reason Together

President Lyndon Johnson often said, “Come let us reason together,” because he believed that the great deliberative body of the United States Congress could act in good faith to develop policies that would serve all Americans.

He passed Medicare, The Civil Rights Act, and The Voting Rights Act.

Just a few years later, LBJ declined to seek re-election because he came to believe that his policy in Vietnam was dividing Americans.

One thought on “Let Us Reason Together

  1. I wish we could go back to the days when the Congress worked together! Now it’s so partisan!! Both “parties” are at fault. I am glad the election will be over tomorrow, however I worry if it doesn’t go the way a certain faction thinks it should have gone there will be more hatred and less cooperation. I pray that Congress remembers that they work FOR us and get some things done.
