    ISSUES: Senator John Sununu

    FOR

    Education Funding

    Despite rhetoric, the proposed Democrat and Republican spending bills do not scrap or over-inflate programs. source

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    In general, the current republican spending bill does not change funding for projects that the party does not support, and it does not overinflate the spending for what they do support.

The proposed bill does not change funding for projects that the party does not support, and it does not over-inflate the spending for what they do support.

    AGAINST

    Unemployment

    Different views on minimizing unemployment, and the amount of government regulation in employment.

    DETAILS:

    Republicans seek less governmental regulation to encourage companies to grow and create an economy where more jobs will exist and more Americans can find full-time employment.

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats favor more governmental regulation and support which can help create an economy where more jobs will exist and more Americans can find full-time employment.


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    One of the key issues in tax reform is whether Big Business tax breaks should be repealed, and which organizations should enjoy nonprofit status.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

    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
