    ISSUES: Rep. Dennis Ross

    FOR

    Trade

    $
    Both parties support stronger trade deals with foreign countries. Each party has a different focus on the matter.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Wants strong protections and the ability to negotiate- or walk away- from any trade deal that does not benefit the American people. Strategies include aggressive trade deals and focusing trade efforts on countries that share our values. source

    FOR Democrats

    Wants strong protections when dealing with foreign trade, so our government can set rules in place that protect our environment, jobs, food safety, and health. source


    FOR

    Census

    The Census is a major talking point because it is being held the same year as an election. There were concerns that a question about citizenship would make immigrants reluctant to turn in their census forms, which would potentially reduce seats for immigrant heavy states. source

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    The Supreme Court has ruled in a 5-4 decision that the U.S. government cannot add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

    FOR Democrats

    The Supreme Court has ruled in a 5-4 decision that the U.S. government cannot add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

    AGAINST Republicans

    AGAINST Democrats


    AGAINST

    Impeachment

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

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans were against an impeachment of President Trump.

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats were in favor of an impeachment of President Trump.


    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
