FOR Republicans

Republicans want to uphold current social welfare programs. At the same time, they want to place a focus on helping recipients achieve independence – including improving the sources of poverty like over-regulation of business growth and private sector compassionate aid programs. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats want people who make over $250,000 to pay more into the program in order to fund it. source
