    ISSUES: Rep. Richard Nolan

    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


    FOR

    Unions

    Unions are groups that act as a middle man to negotiate employee rights and compensations with businesses.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans feel that unions limit innovation and strong-arm businesses into deals that limit growth and impede on employment opportunities. They prefer to focus on right to work laws and incentives to allow businesses and employees to negotiate benefits and compensations without a middle man. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats feel unions are essential to protecting workers rights. Their focus is making it possible for people to form or join a union regardless of where they work. source
