    So I click on your link, and here is the first thing I read.

    "The House GOP Press office has put out a list of the Democrat's "Accomplishments.""

    Very telling. Now if I was you, and I was a Republican, I would raise holy hell that my party spent their time, money, and energy cherry picking through a list of things accomplished and selecting a bunch of nonsense that everyone pushes through anyway in an attempt to play partisan politics, but that's just me.

    Not only that, I googled H.R. 577, one of the bills listed, and half the cosponsors are Republican.

    So maybe the Democratic accomplishments are exaggerated on this list and theyve actually accomplished even less. MARK

    Just click on this link to see what the House and Senate have been working on in this year's session of Congress. No bull or spin from either party, just the facts.

    Yup

    I think this collection of accomplishments is a bunch of crap for political appearance, appeal, gain. Anyhow, anybody have another list that makes for better conversation? Personally, I think at this point, even going all the way back to the beginning of the democrat party and ignoring the massive differences of political ideology, the bad far out-way the good accomplishments of the Democratic Party.
