    Bank Regulation

    Big Banks are seen a lot like big businesses. After various issues in recent decades, it is contested exactly how much control governments should have over them.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    The regulations established by the CFPD are mostly seen as hindering the business of banking in general. The GOP focuses on regulations that protect and regulate consumer support, but otherwise prefer to return power back to the institutions. source

    FOR Democrats

    Oppose such large concentrations of financial power in the hands of a few banks, especially after incidents like Wells Fargo and the financial crisis of 2008. Dems support strengthening the CFPD, and there is a push to allow post offices to provide financial services. source


    FOR

    Reparations

    The concept of making reparations to the descendants of slaves comes on the 400th anniversary of the first slave landing on American soil. While it could take many forms, the most talked about strategy would be paying their descendants money. source

    FOR Democrats

    The Democratic party is roughly split. Nearly half support giving cash reparations to the descendants of slaves. Roughly half oppose cash reparations.


    FOR

    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
