Amigo, the Democratic party are not ‘comfortable in opposition,’ they passed the ACA during the Obama administration, got the U.S. through a recession, saved the auto industry etc. And they are honest about what they propose.
Remember, the Republican leadership didn’t allow the Democrats to even see the bills under discussion. They attempted to simply muscle their ugly legislation through without input, discussion, or even a report from the Congressional Budget Office. Democrats like Senator Schumer have said all along they would work across the isle to fix the Affordable Care Act
