DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans support the care and sustainability of our environment. Their focus is putting that regulating power into the hands of the states instead of the federal government and EPA. They also support all forms of clean energy use- including coal and natural gas. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats support strengthening of the EPA and federal legislation. They also focus on proactive measures to aggressively change how we affect and interact with our environment in ten years or less. source source

FOR

Military

$
Both sides support the soldiers, but differ in how much spending and size should go into the active military force.

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

See the military as integral to security. They support growing and funding military branches and operations as well as improving the care of veterins. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats support the military and call for more robust support programs for veterans. They want to cut back on large scale military maneuvers, finding them dangerous and costly.

LOBBYISTS:


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.
NEWS:

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

LOBBYISTS:


FOR

Housing

$
Republicans and Democrats both support home ownership and making sure the abuses that led to the housing crisis never happen again.

DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans do not feel government regulation is a solution. They want better guidelines to stop predatory loan agreements, promote responsibility for affordable agreements to both buyers and lenders, and end lending quotas that lead to poor company lending choices. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats are focused on expanding the funding for the National Housing Trust Fund and the Neighborhood Stabilization program. They want to increase federal and state programs to reduce homelessness and restructuring housing market policies. source

LOBBYISTS:


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
