As a life long democrat, I suggest you go back and study a little bit of history. Most of our present problems can be traced back to the great FDR. EACH president since has added to the problems he and congress created to get us out of the great depression. When you study the history, none of these programs were great successes. What got us out of the depression was WW II. The sad thing is the failed programs he started have just grown with each administration. Do a little research.
