ISSUES: Senator Richard Shelby

FOR

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. <a target=_top class=news-time href="https://thehill.com/policy/finance/453105-house-democrats-mull-bill-to-ban-facebook-cryptocurrency-project">source</a> See More»

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Many Republicans consider the income tax system to be inherently inefficient and oppose graduated tax rates, which they believe are unfairly targeted at those who create jobs and wealth. They also believe private spending is usually more efficient than government spending. Republicans generally oppose the estate tax. (Wikipedia) See More»

FOR Democrats

Democrats support a more progressive tax structure to provide more services and reduce economic inequality by making sure that the wealthiest Americans pay the highest amount in taxes. They also support more government spending on social services while spending less on the military. (Wikipedia) See More»
