    ISSUES: Rep. Robert Clement

    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

    Social Security

    Social security and other welfare programs are used for more than retirement. They help families and individuals avoid poverty.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    Republicans want to uphold current social welfare programs. At the same time, they want to place a focus on helping recipients achieve independence – including improving the sources of poverty like over-regulation of business growth and private sector compassionate aid programs. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats want people who make over $250,000 to pay more into the program in order to fund it. source


    FOR

    Climate Change

    There is an on-going debate on how to deal with climate changes and environmental damage. While both parties support environmental sustainability, they differ in their methods.

    DETAILS:

    FOR Republicans

    While republicans are skeptical about the extent of the climate change crisis, there is growing support for Climate Action to ensure better environmental standards for future generations. Tactics center around a slower long-term balance of conserving the environment while also maintaining economic development and private property rights. source

    FOR Democrats

    Democrats feel man-made climate change is an immediate threat. They support federal legislation and proactive measures to aggressively change how we affect and interact with our environment in ten years or less. source


    FOR

    Bank Regulation

    Big Banks are seen a lot like big businesses. After various issues in recent decades, it is contested exactly how much control governments should have over them.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    The regulations established by the CFPD are mostly seen as hindering the business of banking in general. The GOP focuses on regulations that protect and regulate consumer support, but otherwise prefer to return power back to the institutions. source

    FOR Democrats

    Oppose such large concentrations of financial power in the hands of a few banks, especially after incidents like Wells Fargo and the financial crisis of 2008. Dems support strengthening the CFPD, and there is a push to allow post offices to provide financial services. source
