Call me lazy ...
But, I know I could go through all of the voting in the House & Senate over the past 20 - 30 years, but I am looking for one ...ONE ... piece of legislation that the Republicans have authored or sponsored that has actually helped Americans.

Anybody have a list handy? I know it will be a very very short list.

Thanks!

3. Okay, you're lazy.

About the only thing that comes to mind is the Do Not Call Registry.

Otherwise, I got nothing.

4. I can find you many pieces of Repuke legislation
that has helped rich Americans. And corporations.

But as for us poor and middle class folk, who are living paycheck to paycheck just to get by? Nope. They have theirs, so screw the little folk.

5. I think George H. W. Bush passed a bill for handicapped people.
None of my Republicans friends could name one thing that helped the average person.

And I think one of them created the National Parks and another the interstate highway system.. and one of them warned about the MIC.

Recently, nothing that I'm aware of.

7. yeah, but the OP said in the past 20-30 years.
The Republican Party of the 1860s was vastly different than the Repuke Party today. I'm sure there are some in the Repuke Party who would bring back slavery, if they could get by with it.
