39. OK

 

Financial assistance - 1935 - Franklin Roosevelt
Social security - 1935 - Franklin Roosevelt
Medicare - 1965 - Lyndon Johnson
Medicaid - 1965 - Lyndon Johnson

But since then Democrats have been trying to appease Republicans with cuts to social programs. Hell, even President Obama was looking at cuts to Social Security and Medicare in order to show he was willing to work with them. They sure as hell weren't willing to work with him. He was able to give us the ACA (which was originally "Romneycare" so hows that for appeasing) probably thinking if he works with a republican healthcare proposal he'd get some support from them. The asshats still opposed him.

It's high time we stop appeasing Republicans and start moving BACK left. Elizabeth Warrens choice of words looks like an indictment. Very disappointing.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
