Democratic Party Agenda

DNC Talkers’ Toplines — September 04

Trump attacks Democrats for not getting any work done in Congress. The reality is that Democrats have actually done a lot, but Trump has opposed their legislation, and it has stalled in McConnell’s legislative graveyard, despite broad support from voters.

Here’s a look at some of what Democrats have done:

  • House Democrats passed the Raise the Wage Act to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.
  • House Democrats passed the American Dream and Promise Act to provide hardworking immigrants a much deserved pathway to citizenship.
  • Democrats passed a disaster relief bill.
  • House Democrats passed the Equality Act to prohibit discrimation based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
  • House Democrats passed a package of bills to protect people’s access to health care and help make prescription drugs more affordable.
  • House Democrats passed a bill to restore net neutrality.
  • House Democrats passed the Climate Action Now Act to take action to protect our climate and create economic opportunities.
  • House Democrats passed legislation to reauthorize and expand the Violence Against Women Act.
  • House Democrats passed legislation to require background checks for all gun sales.
  • House Democrats passed legislation to help close the gender pay gap.
  • House Democrats passed historic anti-corruption reform.
  • House Democrats passed election security legislation to strengthen our election systems against foreign interference.
