    ISSUES: Rep. Claudia Tenney

    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

    Drug Costs

    $
    Both parties are equally invested in finding solutions to the rising cost of medications. However, the two parties differ in how they’d like to fix it. source

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Republicans are resistant to legislation that limits the marketplace like price cap provisions. They prefer more free market tactics like improving the accessibility of generic drugs.

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats focus how the high costs of essential medications place a strain on low- and middle-income families. They generally support federal legislation that would regulate and price cap various medicines based on their category. source


    AGAINST

    Voting

    There are various aspects to voting that are in contention. Two popular topics are securing the ballots and if a popular vote should replace electoral votes.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Against Popular vote. Republicans support greater transparency, stronger security, and a paper ballot. They strongly oppose a popular vote because they feel it would make ballot boxes and technology more vulnerable to exploitation. source

    FOR Democrats

    For popular vote. Democrats support further funding of HAVA and updating equipment to support more secure paper ballots. They believe everyone has a right to vote, including people who have already served their time for past legal transgressions. There is also a movement to push for a National Popular Vote instead of an electoral vote because it is more in line with the voice of those voting. source


    AGAINST

    Impeachment

    House of Representatives has the power to bring charges of impeachment, and they voted to impeach President Trump on December 18, 2019. The Senate has the power to try the impeachment, and the Senate acquitted President Trump on both articles of impeachment on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds supermajority vote of those present. The result of conviction is removal from office.
