      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

      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:


      FOR

      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
