About The Democratic Party:
The Democratic Party and its members are responsible for some of our nation’s most important and impactful legislation: Social Security, Medicare, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Most recently, California Democrats played a leading role in helping President Obama pass the historic Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, ending the insurance company practice of denying coverage to children because of pre-existing conditions and lowering the cost of health care for millions of Americans.
Democrats are building a healthier future for our state and improving the quality of life for all Californians. We believe our state must make university and community college affordable for today’s working and middle-class families. We believe in rewarding hard work and expanding opportunities for all Californians in order to create stronger and healthier communities. There are more than 7.5 million registered Democrats in California – 44.49 percent of California voters.
