    ISSUES: Rep. Loretta Sanchez

    FOR

    Cannabis

    As medical and recreational marijuana are legalized state by state, there is rising support by voters on both sides to make it fully legal. source

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    The GOP voter pool is experiencing a shift in recent years. While there are strong concerns about health concerns related to the drug, there is rising support by voters to legalize. Supporters want the rights and power to legalize to remain with the states.

    FOR Democrats

    The party strongly supports the legalization of cannabis. There is some debate on whether it should be fully decriminalized and regulated by the federal government or if these decisions should be left to each state.


    FOR

    LGBTQ

    The LBGTQ community faces discrimination by some businesses and institutions based on traditional family ideals and religious views. These views have continued to evolve rapidly in the past decade, and there is a shift toward bipartisan support of protections of LGBTQ individuals among voters. source

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    There is a rise in republican voter interest in protecting the rights of LGBTQ individuals. Over half support extra protections to avoid discrimination in workplaces, businesses, and attaining housing. The protection of businesses and institutions based on religious grounds is weakening as religious views evolve. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats feel a person’s identity should not interfere with their ability to work, vote, marry, attain housing, or other basic life tasks. They focus on equal rights in all areas of life, and do not feel religious beliefs should be a factor when businesses choose to hire or serve an individual. source


    FOR

    Diversity

    Diversity refers to differences in racial or ethnic classifications, age, gender, religion, philosophy, physical abilities, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, or any other distinguishing factor. Most politicians are in favor of diversity. They differ on whether diversity should be legislated.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans primarily protest diversity propositions because they feel the measures would force businesses to hire and give promotions based on race, gender, and other factors instead of skills and accomplishments. They also feel the focus on diversity creates divisive labels rather than an inclusive atmosphere. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats back the bill to repeal wealthy business tax cuts to fund proactive measures like education and a diverse resume pool that businesses can use to find qualified and diversified candidates. 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


    AGAINST

    Border Wall

    Building a wall along the Mexico border is an ongoing controversy. While both sides support border security, they focus on different aspects of the issue.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Republicans generally favor the border wall for national security. Limiting access through the borders is believed to be an effective way to combat drug and human trafficking, terrorist movements, and illegal entry. source

    AGAINST Democrats

    Democrats support border security but oppose the wall as an ineffective means of regulating issues along the border. They also oppose the wall due to concerns over eminent domain, funding, and damage to local ecosystems. source
