    ISSUES: Rep. Allen West

    FOR

    Climate Change

    $
    There is an on-going debate on how to deal with climate changes and environmental damage. While both parties support environmental sustainability, they differ in their methods.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    While republicans are skeptical about the extent of the climate change crisis, there is growing support for Climate Action to ensure better environmental standards for future generations. Tactics center around a slower long-term balance of conserving the environment while also maintaining economic development and private property rights. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats feel man-made climate change is an immediate threat. They support federal legislation and proactive measures to aggressively change how we affect and interact with our environment in ten years or less. source


    AGAINST

    Gun Control

    How to reduce gun violence. Two different approaches.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans stand for the second amendment right for a private citizen to keep and bear arms. They believe a person should not be restricted without due process of law. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats respect the rights of individual gun owners. Their focus is taking war weapons off the streets, making gun makers and sellers liable for irresponsible sales, and making weapons harder to attain by terrorists. source


    AGAINST

    Teacher Pay

    The teachers’ pay issue addresses the concern that educators earn 20% or more less than other careers that undergo similar amounts of education and training. The primary point of contention between the two parties is how much federal intervention there should be.

    DETAILS:
