ISSUES: Governor David Ige

FOR

Housing

Republicans and Democrats both support home ownership and making sure the abuses that led to the housing crisis never happen again.

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans do not feel government regulation is a solution. They want better guidelines to stop predatory loan agreements, promote responsibility for affordable agreements to both buyers and lenders, and end lending quotas that lead to poor company lending choices. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats are focused on expanding the funding for the National Housing Trust Fund and the Neighborhood Stabilization program. They want to increase federal and state programs to reduce homelessness and restructuring housing market policies. source


FOR

Unemployment

Different views on minimizing unemployment, and the amount of government regulation in employment.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans seek less governmental regulation to encourage companies to grow and create an economy where more jobs will exist and more Americans can find full-time employment.

FOR Democrats

Democrats favor more governmental regulation and support which can help create an economy where more jobs will exist and more Americans can find full-time employment.


FOR

Transportation

Nearly one-fifth of the Highway Trust Fund is allocated to mass transit like city bus routes or light rails.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans want to cut mass public transit allocations from the Highway Trust Fund as they only serve a small local population rather than the larger infrastructure. They want to put the funding responsibility back in the hands of cities and relevant programs. They oppose an increase in raising the federal gas tax. source

FOR Democrats

Feel that government funded mass transport helps improve urban economies by giving low- and middle-class wage earners an alternative to get to work, school, and other essential locations. They also support an increase in the federal gas tax. source


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
