FOR

Military

$
Both sides support the soldiers, but differ in how much spending and size should go into the active military force.

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.

LOBBYISTS:


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

LOBBYISTS:


AGAINST

Impeachment

House of Representatives has the power to bring charges of impeachment, and afterward the Senate has the power to try the impeachment. Conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds supermajority vote of those present. The result of conviction is removal from office.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans are against an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

FOR Democrats

Democrats are in favor of an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

LOBBYISTS:


    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
