    ISSUES: Rep. John Duncan

    FOR

    Military

    $

    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.


    AGAINST

    Taxes

    $
    One of the key issues in tax reform is whether Big Business tax breaks should be repealed, and which organizations should enjoy nonprofit status.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans are against hypertaxation on any class or industry. They want to ensure past abuses against businesses, individuals, non-profits, and others are never repeated by the tax system. In regards to overseas businesses, they advocate for a territory based taxation- which will tax money made and stored abroad by American businesses and organizations. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats want to end tax breaks for large businesses and add tax penalties for companies that send their businesses, production, and funding overseas. They focus on increasing tax breaks to the lower- and middle-income families in order to lighten the cost of living burdens. source


    AGAINST

    Teacher Pay

    The teachers’ pay issue addresses the concern that educators earn 20% or more less than other careers that undergo similar amounts of education and training. The primary point of contention between the two parties is how much federal intervention there should be.
