ISSUES: Rep. Diana Harshbarger

AGAINST

Abortion

An ongoing controversy about the moral, legal, and religious status of induced abortion. The hottest point of contention lies in which should receive the higher priority when a woman decides not to carry a fetus to term: The woman or the fetus?

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans focus on the rights and safety of the unborn. Goals focus on restrictions and bans of induced abortions to advocate for the life of the fetus.

FOR Democrats

Democrats focus on the rights and safety of the woman. Goals focus on the woman’s right and ability to choose whether they should carry a fetus to term.


AGAINST

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.


AGAINST

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
