Capital punishment is the government-supported execution of a criminal. There is an ongoing controversy as to whether the death penalty should remain an option in the criminal justice system.

NEWS:

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

While many support the choice of the states and the execution of violent criminals, there is a shift in favor of abolishing capital punishment in recent years. This is particularly true for various conservative groups, who view it as murder and share concerns about costs and the number of innocents sent to death row. source

AGAINST Democrats

Since about 2016, Democrats have increasingly opposed the death penalty because it’s morally seen as murder, and new technology has proven various people on death row were unjustly convicted. The party favors improving rehabilitation measures and CSI technology. source

    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

    LOBBYISTS:


    AGAINST

    Cash Bail Reform

    Cash bail is the cash collateral people pay to get out of jail until their hearing date. Often for lower income individuals, this means being beholden to a bail bondsman. The options also have their own drawbacks, so there is no clear-cut solution. source

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    The GOP resists abolishing and reducing cash bail because of concerns over the mandatory release of certain criminals, including domestic abuse offenders. They are concerned the proposed reforms favor the criminals over the victims. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats feel the current system works against certain groups and low-income Americans. There is a split on the method of reform. Some wish to change or reduce the current system costs to the person. Others want to abolish cash bail completely. source
