What Has Congress Ever Done for Us? - WSJ

I did a double take when I read this bit in the Wall Street Journal editorial yesterday. They're proud of this? 
You don't have to be a loony lefty to support all or most of these (though I don't know the ins and outs of the  bailout of Obamacare insurers, to be frank). 
You might even be a liberal-leaning Republican, of which there are rather many, to support these Democratic initiatives, or most of them. Indeed there's probably a majority of Americans who would rather that all of these had been passed rather than stopped by the Republicans as part of "what they've done"'for the nation. 
"Start with everything the GOP Congress has prevented. Universal pre-K, gun regulation, a $15 national minimum wage, the ObamaCare bailout for insurers, equal pay regulation, more disclosure of campaign donations, "free" community college, a new "infrastructure bank," closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay, among many others."
