I realize that you have your head up Obummers ass so deep that you have a brown ring around your neck, but tell us what wondrous things that the
DemoKrats have done better than anyone else. I'm sure that you can find plenty of things about the Republicans to bitch about though.
Of course, health insurance reform is the greatest accomplishment of this term.

But my favorite interest is in ARPA-E research grants to help develop renewable energy. A lot of progress has been made in a few short years. It doesn't get much attention in the mainstream media.

Democrats are responsible for the following:

Healthcare, the cure is for the government to get their political hands out of the healthcare business, and stop telling medicare recipients what company to use for their healthcare. If the government would allow Capitalism to do its work, and allow free
competition in the health industry, our health care costs would drop like a rock, saving billions of dollars for Medicare recipients. I was a business agent for one of the largest unions in the world for 25 years. When I was approached by members of an insurance company that they wanted to have a Union in their work place, and was ready to sign the union cards for a ballot to be taken by the NLRB. As I proceeded to organize them, I was told by my Union Local President, to back off and stop what I was doing.
Any guess why???
Socialized medicine you say? Try to get a doctors appointment in England, or Canada. England has the NHS that runs their medical program, and on their webiste they have posted that they had euthanized 130,000 people . Read this If you are capable:
Shock: British NHS Euthanizes 130,000 Elderly Patients Annually
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | Share
Shocking news from England today has top NHS officials indicating doctors acting in the UK government-run health program annually kill as many as 130,000 patients prematurely because of overcrowding at hospitals, medical clinics and nursing homes.
Professor Patrick Pullicino indicated doctors are turning to a so-called “death pathway” protocol that is essentially active euthanasia of patients, according to a London Daily Mail news report. Pullicino, a consultant neurologist for East Kent Hospitals and Professor of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Kent, made his remarks in a speech before the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
He claimed there was often a lack of clear evidence for initiating the Liverpool Care Pathway, a method of looking after terminally ill patients that is used in hospitals across the country. It is designed to come into force when doctors believe it is impossible for a patient to recover and death is imminent.
It can include withdrawal of treatment – including the provision of water and nourishment by tube – and on average brings a patient to death in 33 hours. There are around 450,000 deaths in Britain each year of people who are in hospital or under NHS care. Around 29 per cent – 130,000 – are of patients who were on the LCP.
Professor Pullicino claimed that far too often elderly patients who could live longer are placed on the LCP and it had now become an ‘assisted death pathway rather than a care pathway’. He cited ‘pressure on beds and difficulty with nursing confused or difficult-to-manage elderly patients’ as factors.
CAN YOU SAY "COMING TO AMERICA???"
“The continuing collapse of the NHS is not only an indictment of single payer health care: It is a warning to the U.S. about centralized control of health care,” he said.“The continuing collapse of the NHS is not only an indictment of single payer health care: It is a warning to the U.S. about centralized control of health care.”
“Adding injury to injury, how easy it is for the bureaucrats to lard on the goodies on the private insurance companies’ dimes–as is already happening. What makes us think that a too strained and bureaucratically suffocated private sector won’t eventually end up in a collapse–further harming the economy–and unable to provide for patients properly?” he said.“Once that happens (with malice aforethought?) Obamacarian class warriors will give a war whoop of triumph for having destroyed the dreaded private sector–and force us into single payer. See,“NHS Meltdown” posts. Lose. Lose. Lose.”
You want the Government not to tell Medicare recipients which company to use for healthcare???? Are you kidding me?? Medicare is a Govt. program and you think they should have no say???

Wait till you have no health care coverage, due to no fault of you own.
Because of health problems, they won't cover you.
Then lets watch this conversation change quickly.

More Democrats voted against the Civil Rights act than did Republicans and a higher percentage of Republicans voted for it than did Democrats.

If there had been more Democrats in office at the time... the Civil Rights act would never have passed.

Yet... you credit the Democrats for it's passage?

You misspeak a lot Fed. Pointless drivel; as in the first sentence of your last post, and everything else you have posted. And the reason you have no wife or girlfriend, you can't find a woman dumb enough to have you, not to mention you are looking for a tranny. The only thing you got correct was to say YOU ARE SORRY.

This revisionist history is disingenuous to say the least.

Kennedy first proposed the legislation. A Democrat brought it to the floor. LBJ made it happen.

A majority in both parties voted for it. The Southern Democrats were bigots and fought against it. These ignorant racists are who LBJ was referring to when he said the Civil Rights Act lost them the South for generations. The Democratic bigots became Reagan Republicans in the next decade.

The 1964 Republican nominee Barry Goldwater opposed the bill. Even today, Teabagger politicians like Rand Paul and others say the Civil Rights Act was a mistake.

So, Yes, I credit the Democrats for its passage.

You guys do realize that Heavy Fed will never accept that as truth don't you? Also you might want to define revisionist for him.
