    ISSUES: Rep. Robert Brady

    FOR

    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    One of the key issues in tax reform is whether Big Business tax breaks should be repealed, and which organizations should enjoy nonprofit status.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


    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


    FOR

    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
