The “loony liberal” left inevitably brings up the canard or so-called fact that it was Democrats, and Democrats alone, who gave us Social Security, Medicare, and the Civil Rights Act, implying that the cold-hearted, insensitive, big bad Republicans were against all these pieces of social legislation and they should be condemned for their apparent lack of humanitarianism.

Well, those so-called facts are false and outright lies used to put a bad light upon the Republicans. Here are the facts:

Did you know that Social Security was passed when Democrats controlled both Congress and the White House, yet 64% of Senate Republicans and 79% of the House Republicans voted for it? More than half of the Senate Republican caucus voted for the Medicare Act in 1965. In 1964, in the House, the Civil Rights Act was voted for by 80% of the Republicans as compared with only 63% of the Democrats. In the Senate, 82% of the Republicans supported the legislation compared with 69% of the Democrats. By the way, voting against this measure were Al Gore Sr., William Fulbright, and Robert Byrd, all liberal icons.

So the next time you hear a liberal claim that only Democrats are in favor of social legislation and passing laws for the “average” citizen to make their lives better, recite these FACTS and figures and then see what they have to say.

Chances are the "Libs" will continue offering up the same lies to justify their erroneous contention that Repblicans and Conservatives are "evil" people. When our fraud in the White House repeatedly lies about his policies, what can you expect from the rank and file Democrats? Liar, liar pants on fire!
