    When other major progressive legislation was passed. Technically the Civil Rights Act was "piecemeal". It didn't include voting rights thus, the Voting Rights Act was needed. When Social Security was passed it didn't include farm or domestic workers to get the votes of Dixiecrats. Virtually all progress in this country has been made by "piecemeal" efforts. If more progressive understood that we wouldn't have the "enthusiasm gap'. You get what you can get when you can get it. You don't pout and poo-poo everything and let the GOP take back Congress so that no more progress can be made.
