More On Grassley's Fantasy Bipartisanship

MyDD writer Transplanted Texas observes that the following bills were unable to earn the support of 75% of the Senate
  • The 19th amendment, enfranchising women.
  • The 21st amendment, repealing prohibition.
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Iraq War
  • The financial sector bailout of 2008
Under Chuck Grassley's standards the only bills that are truly bipartisan were Social Security, Medicare, and welfare reform. The Senior Senator from Iowa wishes to consign America to an awfully sparse and ineffective federal government.
