    ISSUES: Rep. Christopher Carney

    FOR

    Health Care

    There is an ongoing controversy on how to address rising healthcare costs for Americans.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Republicans have put forth a 68-page bill that is focused on Choice and Competition in the public healthcare marketplace. Some plans include loosening rules on health savings accounts and allowing businesses more freedoms in insuring their employees. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats primarily back a Medicare for All Plan, which would insure everyone has insurance and that costs were controlled. source


    FOR

    Diversity

    Diversity refers to differences in racial or ethnic classifications, age, gender, religion, philosophy, physical abilities, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, or any other distinguishing factor. Most politicians are in favor of diversity. They differ on whether diversity should be legislated.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans primarily protest diversity propositions because they feel the measures would force businesses to hire and give promotions based on race, gender, and other factors instead of skills and accomplishments. They also feel the focus on diversity creates divisive labels rather than an inclusive atmosphere. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats back the bill to repeal wealthy business tax cuts to fund proactive measures like education and a diverse resume pool that businesses can use to find qualified and diversified candidates. source


    FOR

    Minimum Wage

    The current talking point is whether the federal government should raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans feel a sudden minimum wage hike would hurt most businesses, who would have to hire fewer employees and give existing workers fewer hours to absorb the costs, especially small and medium sized businesses with a small employee payroll budget.

    FOR Democrats

    The current goal of the democratic party is to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour and protect the overtime rule that ensures workers are compensated for holidays and extra hours.
