Why don't Democrats identify a few universally hated elements of modern life, and introduce legislation that will eliminate or mitigate them?
Here are a few examples:
Calls from "Rachel" at card services. Why don't Democrats push for legislation to make fraud that accompanies violation of the Do Not Call list a more serious offense (preferably, a criminal offense)? Then require credit card companies to refund consumers' money (or double their money) if they have been the target of one of these scams, and the credit card company passes the charges through to the consumer (that alone would shut this stuff down in about a microsecond).
Daylight Savings Time. It's stupid. Everybody hates it. Let's get rid of it. This is one area where Arizona is right and the rest of the country is behind the times.
Require publicly listed companies to disclose the percentage of their employees who are employed in the US.
Any other ideas? If anybody has any good ones, I'll include them in a poll. There are two basic criteria:
1. The problem has one which is universally and bipartisan-ly hated
2. The problem has to be easily fixed by legislation (i.e. no "people can't make slurping noises when they eat soup")
