71. Our huge majorities haven't been able to pass ANYTHING even close to as progressive as 1935 SS Act.

You might have faith but a huge portion of the Democratic party is either heavily influenced by the rich, are DINOS, or wholly owned by corporate interests.

I have more faith in the 1935 SS Act than anything Congress could pass today.

Health Care Reform? - passed under Democratic majorities
NAFTA - signed by Democratic president
Financial Reform? - laughably weak

Social Security is strong and has survived 70+ days. Our current Congress couldn't reform their way out of a paper bag. :rofl:
