REPUBLICANS ARE THE DIFFERENCE
Republican votes in the House and Senate were essential to passing such consequential and groundbreaking laws as the abolition of slavery, the right of women to vote, and – to perhaps the surprise of many who do not know — the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Act. The Democrats could not pass ANY of these without Republican votes, and in some cases, Republicans far outnumbered the Democrats in voting for these things. I have taken the time to research and find links giving specific dates and numbers. I thought it was worth considering as an addition to our website, and perhaps, to educate the public.
