    ISSUES: Governor Jay Inslee

    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

    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

    Gun Control

    How to reduce gun violence. Two different approaches.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans stand for the second amendment right for a private citizen to keep and bear arms. They believe a person should not be restricted without due process of law. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats respect the rights of individual gun owners. Their focus is taking war weapons off the streets, making gun makers and sellers liable for irresponsible sales, and making weapons harder to attain by terrorists. 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
