Oh this is totally false. In fact, just the opposite is true. Even if you disagree with them politically you've got to admit that they are the party of innovation and you'll ideas while Republicans are, mostly, stuck in the past. Of course, this is true on the rhetorical front where Republicans want to make America great again, ie return to the past. But it's also true on the policy level. Democrats are coming up with lots and lots of new ideas for how to fix various problems in America. Republicans I've come up with centralino new ideas in the last decade or more. The closest they come is figuring out new ways to creatively restrict abortion access. Fact, Republicans have seen the range of acceptable policy tools narrow drastically. This is one of the reasons why they have difficulty solving problems such as Healthcare, because there is almost nothing they can do which is any illogical acceptable.
