ISSUES: Rep. Jake Auchincloss

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

Climate Change

There is an on-going debate on how to deal with climate changes and environmental damage. While both parties support environmental sustainability, they differ in their methods.

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

While republicans are skeptical about the extent of the climate change crisis, there is growing support for Climate Action to ensure better environmental standards for future generations. Tactics center around a slower long-term balance of conserving the environment while also maintaining economic development and private property rights. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats feel man-made climate change is an immediate threat. They support federal legislation and proactive measures to aggressively change how we affect and interact with our environment in ten years or less. source


FOR

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.


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
