I can't think of how anything the democrats in congress or the President has tried to do has helped me. I hope there is someone out there that they have helped, and hope I can hear about it.

well said dashing, I never understood people's need to blame or credit the government for their lot in life - we should help ourselves.
Exactly, and it the founders of our country never intended for the federal government to be involved in most things. Anything not listed in the Constitution was supposed to be left to the states.
"Progressiive pol." Oh yes, we must avoid progress at all cost. Back to epidemics and famines and child labor and slavery and lynch mobs. That's the ticket!!
Kdson, Progressive means regressive, big government has been used many times and has never worked. We are repeating history. Freedom is new, and we gave it up.
It would be great were the progressive movement about progress. Unfortunately what it's about is clinging to power for itself, suppressing dissent, and preserving the US national status quo. It talks a good game, but its first trait is hypocrisy.
No but either have Democrats. They pretty much work together. Any government program that seems to help people, usually does the opposite.
Forcing people who are above the poverty line but still can't afford insurance to buy it or be fined is a good thing?
Actually, both parties haven't done anything to help the American people. They might argue in front of the cameras, but behind the scenes they making deals. The best solution is to return healthcare to the free market, allow competition
The people who voted down are blinded by all the lies. Open your eyes and see the truth.
It's campaign season. Truth isn't what's abroad in the land. The two-horned devil of demwit and retardican mass insanity has arrived at Hub Pages, too. No matter the character of your post, down votes are a fixture here until the election's over.
I agree with this, everyone wants to blame presidents alone for everything - but it's the representatives in Congress/Senate that are largely to blame with their continuous displays of juvenile behavior and inability to work for their constituents.
