Bernie's record in Congress shows he can get things done despite GOP opposition

Bernie Sanders passed more roll call amendments in a Republican Congress than any other member.
-- POLITIFACT rates this TRUE

Bernie was the Roll Call Amendment King in Congress when the Republicans controlled the House of Representatives from 1995-2007.

"From 1995 to 2007, Sanders passed 17 amendments by a recorded roll call vote more than any other member in the House....

In comparison, Hillary Clinton passed zero roll call amendments during her tenure as a senator from New York from 2001-09."
