    FOR

    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


    FOR

    Opioids

    There is no argument that the rise in opioid abuse needs to be addressed. Each party has a plan they back.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    The republican platform supports the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, which focuses on the frontlines battling opioid abuse. Examples include drug awareness, limiting prescriptions, and making the reversal drug Naloxone readily available to first responders. source

    FOR Democrats

    The democratic platform supports the CARE act, which focuses on regulating the systems that make opioids available. It would fund $100 billion over ten years to battle the opioid crisis. They also support penalties on companies that contribute to the rising problem and harsher restrictions on opioid prescriptions. source


    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


    FOR

    Housing

    Republicans and Democrats both support home ownership and making sure the abuses that led to the housing crisis never happen again.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Republicans do not feel government regulation is a solution. They want better guidelines to stop predatory loan agreements, promote responsibility for affordable agreements to both buyers and lenders, and end lending quotas that lead to poor company lending choices. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats are focused on expanding the funding for the National Housing Trust Fund and the Neighborhood Stabilization program. They want to increase federal and state programs to reduce homelessness and restructuring housing market policies. source
