    ISSUES: Rep. Ray LaHood

    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


    FOR

    Cryptocurrency

    Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are considered an asset and commodity rather than legal currency. There is a Bipartisan support for regulating cryptocurrency, though not as a legal currency. source

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Support regulating cryptocurrencies as a commodity and security. They also back using cryptocurrency as an election contribution source. source

    FOR Democrats

    Many house democrats want to regulate cryptocurrency and use it as a campaign contribution source. They also want to ban Big Tech like Facebook from providing their own cryptocurrencies, believing it would weaken US financial power. 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


    AGAINST

    Impeachment

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

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans were against an impeachment of President Trump.

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats were in favor of an impeachment of President Trump.
