    Let’s go down the list: Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, Children’s Health Insurance, Mathew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act, Tobacco Regulation, Credit Card Reform, Student Loan Reform, Stimulus (which saved us from a second Great Depression), Health Reform, Wall Street Reform, New G.I. Bill (thank you Jim Webb!), Food Safety Modernization Act, repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, new START treaty ratified — all done by Democrats, most without almost any Republican support. Just remember that when you watch Teapublicans take charge of the House of Representatives in a few weeks and push their reactionary, right-wing agenda while making it almost impossible to govern. Pretty soon, if/when that happens, people will be yearning for full Democratic control of government again…just in time for the 2012 elections! 🙂
