Is it true that Democrats controlled both houses for c. 2 years? If so, couldn’t the president have passed the big ones, like health care reform, immigration reform, etc., at that time? And if he had the support then, why didn’t he do it?

    "Is it true that Democrats controlled both houses for @ 2 years?" - is there anything basic Wikipedia articles on US House and Senate in 2008 don't cover on this specific question?

Yes, President Barack Obama could have passed Obamacare in the first two years of his presidency, given that the Democrats controlled both houses.

We know this because he did.
