After Reading Donald Young Questions and Answers

 


 

Issue Positions

For Presidential and Congressional candidates who refuse to provide voters with their positions, A very respectable company that I trust a lot has researched their public records to determine their likely responses. These issue positions are from 2016.

 


Abortion

Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?    Pro-Life

  • Signed a letter stating: “Life has immeasurable value and your Administration has made it a sacred duty to protect the right to life at all stages. The list of pro-life achievements continues to grow each day under your guidance. From your pledge to veto any legislation that weakens federal pro-life policies to reinstating the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy and positively reforming Title X family planning grant program, your Administration has made significant commitments and implemented much-needed improvements.”
  • Rated 100% by National Right to Life Committee.
  • Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation? “Pro-Life”
  • Voted in favor of HR 4712 – Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

Budget

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?       Does Not Support

  • Voted in favor of HR 1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
  • “Americans deserve tax relief and certainty so they can make their budgets accordingly. As a fiscal conservative and Alaskan who values independence, I will continue to work to help households keep more of their hard earned paychecks because I trust they can spend it better than the federal government.”
  • In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket? “No”
  • “I have often said that you cannot cut your way to prosperity. I believe that the same is also true about taxes; you cannot tax your way to prosperity. While it is obvious that some cuts must be made, many reforms must be undertaken, and some new revenue must be generated, I do not believe that these are long-term solutions to our debt problem.”

Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?     Unknown Position
  • “We need to take the time to develop sensible changes that will ensure the continued viability of this important program. In the meantime, I believe that all workers who have paid into this system should receive the full benefits they have been promised.”
  • Rated 14% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “It angers me to hear my fellow Alaskans recount stories of how they were turned away from doctors when they were in need of care because Medicare continues to reimburse physicians below actual medical costs. This is unacceptable and due in large part to the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula, which threatens Medicare doctors every year with large cuts to reimbursement rates. Each year, Congress steps in at the last minute to delay these cuts for another year but we need to find a permanent solution to fully repeal the SGR formula and create a new system which guarantees stable reimbursement rates to all doctors who accept Medicare patients, and bonus payments for providers who provide above average patient care.”

Campaign Finance

Campaign Finance: Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?    Does Not Support

  • “As a result of the January 2010 Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v Federal Election Commission, corporations, unions, and incorporated special interest groups may participate directly in the election process without contribution limits. Further, persons who pool their funds or contribute to Political Action Committees (PACs) may spend those funds in the 60 day period preceding an election. I am concerned that there are now no limitations on incorporated entities while individuals are still subjected to strict regulations. We must look for ways to address this discrepancy.”
  • Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions? “No”

Crimes

Crime: Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct?     Unknown Position

  • Despite exhaustive research, Our research was unable to find information about this candidate’s position.

Defense

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Supports

  • “I believe that a well funded and equipped military is the best deterrent against those who are a threat to freedom and prosperity and the best way to maintain a peaceful world. It is for that reason that I am deeply troubled by the funding priorities laid out by President Obama and Defense Secretary Gates, specifically the cuts to the F-22 program and the Missile Defense Agency.”
  • “I will continue to support all of our bases, and hope to see new missions continue to come to Alaska.”
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy.
  • “Without adequately providing for the defense of our nation, the U.S. will cease to be the beacon of freedom we are today. In these times of global threats—be it a resurgent Russia, a growing Chinese military, an unpredictable North Korea, or Islamic extremists, the United States military must be trained, equipped, and ready to defend our interests around the world.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)

Economy

Economy: Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?     Does Not Support

  • “Major investments in infrastructure are needed in Alaska. Twenty-one percent of our major roads are in poor or mediocre condition; less than 10 percent of our bridges are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete; the ports, docks, and small boat harbors of Alaska are far behind; and our drinking water and wastewater infrastructure needs an investment of $972.1 million over the next 20 years (American Society of Civil Engineers Report Card 2017).” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)
  • “Americans deserve tax relief and certainty so they can make their budgets accordingly. As a fiscal conservative and Alaskan who values independence, I will continue to work to help households keep more of their hard earned paychecks because I trust they can spend it better than the federal government.”
  • Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth? “No”
  • “From a national perspective, it is vitally important that we provide enough funding in the HTF to maintain a strong investment. The federal government cannot replace the responsibilities of the state and local governments, but can supplement their efforts. The House will take up an infrastructure package in the next year, which I will fight to include funding for highway, bridge, transit, and research programs.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)

Economy: Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?    Supports

  • “We all know it. Tax day shouldn’t be like this. That’s why we passed the #TaxCutsandJobsAct to bring more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks to everyday Americans.” (twitter.com)
  • “I believe that the best way to strengthen our economy is to reduce the tax burden on the taxpayers whenever possible.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 1- Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Economy: Do you support providing financial relief to businesses AND/OR corporations negatively impacted by the state of national emergency for COVID-19?     Supports

  • “I helped the House pass the CARES Act – emergency COVID-19 legislation that has now been signed into law by @POTUS.” (twitter.com)

Education

Education: Do you support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?

  • Do you generally support requiring states to adopt federal education standards? “No”
  • “The NCLB mandated a “one size fits all” approach to increasing academic achievement of students throughout the country. Instead of empowering schools in Alaska, NCLB standards have burdened them. Alaska is not alone in its struggle to meet unique challenges and educate its children. In fact, each state has geographic, economic, or cultural barriers that have prevented its schools from complying with NCLB requirements. Most agreed that the NCLB needed to be replaced with education policies that give individual states, school districts, and parents more decision making.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)
  • “As a former teacher, I am committed to ensuring our nation’s children are provided with the best possible education. I believe S.1177 contains a number of critical reforms Alaskan parents and teachers have demanded. By empowering our states and restoring local control, we get the federal government out of the way as we invest in the next generation of our nation’s leaders.”
  • “Importantly, the ESSA stops the federal government’s promotion of Common Core and protects the rights of states and school districts to develop or change their own standards as they see fit.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)

Energy and Environment

Energy and Environment: Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, geo-thermal)?    Supports

  • “Alaskans and Americans deserve an all of the above approach that supports traditional and alternative energy sources, not a systematic veto on specific industries and economic opportunity as we’ve seen in recent years.”
  • Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, thermal)? “Yes.”
  • “Renewable energy is a key component of American energy independence, and Alaskans have my commitment that I’ll continue working to ensure that development in all forms is supported.” (twitter.com)
  • Rated 97% by American Energy Alliance.

Energy and Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?    Does Not Support

  • “I’ve fought to secure the rights of Alaskans to develop energy on their lands, and the #GreenNewDeal would turn the clock back on our progress. The Green New Deal is a bad deal for Alaska.” (twitter.com)
  • Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions? “No”
  • “I’ve fought for a long time to open the 1002 Area for oil and gas development, and this is a critical step toward reaching that goal. I want to thank Secretary Zinke and Assistant Secretary Balash for their hard work in producing this draft EIS, and look forward to continuing to work with DOI in 2019 to complete the assessment process,” Young said. “Opening the 1002 Area will allow Alaska to be a leader in energy development so we can continue the Trump Administration’s efforts to make our country energy independent.”

Gun Reform

Gun Reform: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?     Does Not Support

  • “A majority of the shooting tragedies this nation has endured share a common element that the assailant was mentally ill and behavioral red flags were either ignored or not acted upon until it was too late. All Second Amendment supporters will agree that firearms do not belong in the hands of violent criminals or the seriously mentally disturbed. However, instead of using tragedies to justify limiting access to firearms for all Americans, lawmakers should use them as motivation to reform the way we recognize and care for the mentally ill, in addition to protecting our citizens from radicalized terrorists.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)
  • Do you generally support gun-control legislation? “No”
  • Rated 100% by the National Rifle Association.
  • “This legislation puts dangerous limitations on firearm transfers between family members, and does nothing but restrict the rights of sportsmen and law-abiding gun owners’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”

Health Care

Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)?    Supports

  • “The “Affordable Care Act” (ACA), also known as Obamacare, was a flawed government remake of health care built on broken promises that led to inferior outcomes. Then President Obama promised Americans that the average family would save $2,500 per year and that they could keep their current health plans and doctors if they liked them, none of which was shown to be true. Further, Alaska has some of the highest health costs in the national and was hit with huge premium increases in the individual market and the loss of all but one insurer.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)
  • Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)? “Yes”
  • “Inaction’s not an option; something must be done to address downward spiral of ACA. I voted to move process forward.” (twitter.com)
  • “On May 4, 2017, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act, which would have begun a transition away from Obamacare by repealing government mandates and taxes while retaining provisions I wanted to see preserved including protections for preexisting conditions, allowing dependents under 26 to remain on their parent’s plans, no limits on lifetime caps, and more. I was among those voting in favor of passage.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)

Health Care: Do you support requiring businesses to provide paid medical leave during public health crises, such as COVID-19?     Unknown Position

  • Despite exhaustive research, Our research was unable to find information about this candidate’s position.

Health Care:    Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?      Unknown Position

  • “We need to take the time to develop sensible changes that will ensure the continued viability of this important program. In the meantime, I believe that all workers who have paid into this system should receive the full benefits they have been promised.”
  • Rated 14% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “It angers me to hear my fellow Alaskans recount stories of how they were turned away from doctors when they were in need of care because Medicare continues to reimburse physicians below actual medical costs. This is unacceptable and due in large part to the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula, which threatens Medicare doctors every year with large cuts to reimbursement rates. Each year, Congress steps in at the last minute to delay these cuts for another year but we need to find a permanent solution to fully repeal the SGR formula and create a new system which guarantees stable reimbursement rates to all doctors who accept Medicare patients, and bonus payments for providers who provide above average patient care.”

Immigration

Immigration: Do you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?     Supports

  • “First and most important, we need to secure our borders and restore enforcement of existing laws. I believe most Alaskans share my frustration that past administrations and the current President have failed to effectively enforce existing immigration laws. This effort to secure our borders must also include an effective visa overstay tracking system.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 6136 – Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018.
  • “While the path forward is not quite as clear, I remain strongly committed to passing an immigration bill to secure our borders, allow for construction of President Trump’s border wall, crack down on so-called “sanctuary cities,” and close loopholes in our current system.”
  • “We must come to an agreement that funds border security — including barriers where necessary, establishes a resolution for DACA recipients, and respects the rule of law.”

Immigration: Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?    Unknown Position

  • “Rewriting our immigration laws through Executive Order, as was done under DACA, is not acceptable. These decisions must receive the approval of Congress. Now that President Trump has overturned this Obama-era order, I believe it’s Congress’ responsibility to address our nation’s broken immigration system, including the legal status of those who were brought to our nation through no fault of their own.” )
  • Voted in favor of HR 3003 – No Sanctuary for Criminals Act.
  • “Both of the bills the House has voted on recently provided meaningful reforms to our immigration laws to better secure our borders, stop illegal immigration and close many of the enforcement loopholes. Additionally, these bills would have established a resolution for DACA recipients and codified an assurance that families won’t be separated at the border. I supported both measures because I believe Congress, not the Executive Branch, should be writing the laws that govern our country and we need all options on the table for developing the best legislative approach.”
  • “We must come to an agreement that funds border security — including barriers where necessary, establishes a resolution for DACA recipients, and respects the rule of law.”

Justice System

Justice System:   Crime: Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct?     Unknown Position

  • Despite exhaustive research, Our research was unable to find information about this candidate’s position.

Military Spending

Military Spending:    Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Supports

  • “I believe that a well funded and equipped military is the best deterrent against those who are a threat to freedom and prosperity and the best way to maintain a peaceful world. It is for that reason that I am deeply troubled by the funding priorities laid out by President Obama and Defense Secretary Gates, specifically the cuts to the F-22 program and the Missile Defense Agency.”
  • “I will continue to support all of our bases, and hope to see new missions continue to come to Alaska.”
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy.
  • “Without adequately providing for the defense of our nation, the U.S. will cease to be the beacon of freedom we are today. In these times of global threats—be it a resurgent Russia, a growing Chinese military, an unpredictable North Korea, or Islamic extremists, the United States military must be trained, equipped, and ready to defend our interests around the world.” (www.alaskansfordonyoung.com)

National Security

National Security: Should the United States use military force to prevent governments hostile to the U.S. from possessing a weapon of mass destruction (for example: nuclear, biological, chemical)?     Supports

  • “America’s military is strong and stands ready to defend our citizens, allies, and way of life against further aggression by the Iranian regime. I am grateful for President Trump’s strong leadership as the world comes together in support of the Iranian people’s pursuit of liberty.” (twitter.com)
  • “I believe this reckless and calculated behavior by the North Korean regime speaks volumes to the importance of the strategically placed U.S. missile defense capabilities, including the Ground-based interceptors at Fort Greely, AK and other elements of the nation’s ballistic missile defense system. These forces guard this nation and are the first responders against weapons of mass destruction.”
  • “I opposed the Iran Nuclear deal from the onset, in part because it abandoned the strict level of scrutiny needed to prevent Iran’s nuclear ambitions and placed an unprecedented level of trust in a rogue nation that continues to skirt international sanctions while acting as a catalyst for terrorism and violence across the globe,” said Congressman Don Young. “Very simply, this was a bad deal; one that only delayed Tehran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons for a short time. I support the President’s decision to reexamine this flawed deal that is counter to our national security interests.”

National Security: Do you support reducing military intervention in Middle East conflicts?    Unknown Position

  • Voted in favor of H Amdt 908 – Prohibits United States Combat Operations in Iraq.
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy.
  • “In addition to allowing for the resurgence of ISIS, this move calls into question America’s commitment to our allies. We should be standing with the Kurds and against Turkish operations in Northern Syria.” (twitter.com)

Social Security

Social Security:   Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?      Unknown Position

  • “We need to take the time to develop sensible changes that will ensure the continued viability of this important program. In the meantime, I believe that all workers who have paid into this system should receive the full benefits they have been promised.”
  • Rated 14% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “It angers me to hear my fellow Alaskans recount stories of how they were turned away from doctors when they were in need of care because Medicare continues to reimburse physicians below actual medical costs.

Each year, Congress steps in at the last minute to delay these cuts for another year but we need to find a permanent solution to fully repeal the SGR formula and create a new system which guarantees stable reimbursement rates to all doctors who accept Medicare patients, and bonus payments for providers who provide above average patient care.”

Taxes

Taxes:   Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?      Does Not Support

  • Voted in favor of HR 1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
  • “Americans deserve tax relief and certainty so they can make their budgets accordingly. As a fiscal conservative and Alaskan who values independence, I will continue to work to help households keep more of their hard earned paychecks because I trust they can spend it better than the federal government.”
  • In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket? “No”
  • “I have often said that you cannot cut your way to prosperity. I believe that the same is also true about taxes; you cannot tax your way to prosperity. While it is obvious that some cuts must be made, many reforms must be undertaken, and some new revenue must be generated, I do not believe that these are long-term solutions to our debt problem.”

Trade

Trade: Do you generally support removing barriers to international trade (for example: tariffs, quotas, etc.)?    Supports

  • “Although I support the idea of free trade, I have long argued that trade agreements of this magnitude must include significant Congressional involvement and input – something the North American Free Trade Agreement substantially lacked before I voted against it in 1994. For these reasons, I opposed Trade Promotion Authority, which ceded much of Congress’ power and authority to the Executive Branch and limited our ability to block or amend bad trade deals. I have publicly stated that I would oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership, in part because it does not level the playing field for American businesses – which face economic and regulatory burdens found almost nowhere else in the world.” (donyoung.house.gov)
  • Signed a letter stating: “We look forward to working with you and your Administration to realize our shared goal of a modernized NAFTA that will foster even greater economic success for Americans as we continue to compete and win around the world.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 5430 – United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act.
  • Signed a letter stating: “We appreciate and support the Administration’s long-term goal of rebalancing the trade environment and establishing free, fair, and reciprocal trade between our nation and its trading partners, especially China. In the short term, however, unjustified retaliatory tariffs on U.S. seafood are disrupting trade and significantly damaging seafood producers across the country, especially in Alaska.”
