Here is a list of bills currently sponsored by democRATs that are being blocked because the GOP runs the house. This is just a small preview for those curious as to what the RATs would do if they return to power, and some examples as to why you can't let that happen:

Department of Peace and Nonviolence Act (H.R. 3760)
Proposed by Dennis Kucinich (RAT-OH) to propose a new "Department of Peace and Nonviolence" as well as "National Peace Day."

Gas Stamps (H.R. 3712)
Jim McDermott (RAT-WA) wants a "Gas Stamps" program similar to the Food Stamps program to subsidize the gasoline purchases of qualified individuals.

Less Jail Time for Selling Crack Cocaine (H.R. 2456)
Charlie Rangel (RAT-NY) wants to eliminate mandatory minimum sentences for possessing, importing, and distributing crack cocaine.

Voting Rights for Criminals (H.R. 1300 and H.R. 663)
John Conyers (RAT-MI) Charlie Rangel (RAT-NY) want to let convicted felons vote.

Expand Medicare to Include Diapers (H.R. 1052)
Barney Frank (RAT-MA) supports Medicare coverage of adult diapers. Barney Frank is the would-be Chairman of the Financial Services Committee.

Taxpayer Funded Abortions & Elimination of all Restrictions on Abortion, Including Parental Notice (H.R. 5151)
Jerrold Nadler (RAT-NY) wants to overturn even minimal restrictions on abortion such as parental notice requirements. The bill would also require taxpayer funding of abortions through the various federal health care programs. This is another reason why the democRATs are the Party of Death.

Bill of Welfare Rights (H.J. Res. 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35)
Jesse Jackson, Jr. (RAT-IL) proposes a Soviet-style "Bill of Welfare Rights," enshrining the rights of full employment, public education, national healthcare, public housing, abortion, progressive taxation, and union membership. All of these would be amendments to the US Constitution.

Justice for the Unprotected against Sexually Transmitted Infections among the Confined and Exposed Act (JUSTICE) Act (H.R. 6083)
Requires community organizations to be allowed to distribute sexual barrier protection devices (e.g. condoms) in federal prisons. Also prohibits a federal prison from taking adverse action against a prisoner who possesses or uses a sexual barrier protection device.

End the War in Iraq Act (H.R. 4232)
Defunds the War in Iraq, forcing immediate troop withdrawal.

Universal National Service Act (H.R. 4752)

Antibullying Campaign Act (H.R. 3787
Jerrold Nadler (RAT-NY) wants to create a new federal grant program aimed at reducing bullying in public schools "based on any distinguishing characteristic of an individual."
