    ISSUES: Rep. Nancy Johnson

    FOR

    Trade

    Both parties support stronger trade deals with foreign countries. Each party has a different focus on the matter.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Wants strong protections and the ability to negotiate- or walk away- from any trade deal that does not benefit the American people. Strategies include aggressive trade deals and focusing trade efforts on countries that share our values. source

    FOR Democrats

    Wants strong protections when dealing with foreign trade, so our government can set rules in place that protect our environment, jobs, food safety, and health. source


    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.


    AGAINST

    Impeachment

    House of Representatives has the power to bring charges of impeachment, and they voted for impeachment on December 18, 2019. 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 of President Trump.

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats are in favor of an impeachment of President Trump.


    AGAINST

    Voting

    There are various aspects to voting that are in contention. Two popular topics are securing the ballots and if a popular vote should replace electoral votes.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Against Popular vote. Republicans support greater transparency, stronger security, and a paper ballot. They strongly oppose a popular vote because they feel it would make ballot boxes and technology more vulnerable to exploitation. source

    FOR Democrats

    For popular vote. Democrats support further funding of HAVA and updating equipment to support more secure paper ballots. They believe everyone has a right to vote, including people who have already served their time for past legal transgressions. There is also a movement to push for a National Popular Vote instead of an electoral vote because it is more in line with the voice of those voting. source


    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
