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

LOBBYISTS:


FOR

Military

$
Both sides support the soldiers, but differ in how much spending and size should go into the active military force.

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

See the military as integral to security. They support growing and funding military branches and operations as well as improving the care of veterins. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats support the military and call for more robust support programs for veterans. They want to cut back on large scale military maneuvers, finding them dangerous and costly.

LOBBYISTS:


AGAINST

Impeachment

House of Representatives has the power to bring charges of impeachment, and afterward the Senate has the power to try the impeachment. Conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds supermajority vote of those present. The result of conviction is removal from office.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans are against an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

FOR Democrats

Democrats are in favor of an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

LOBBYISTS:


    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
