After Reading Lisa Murkowski’s 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?    Unknown Position

  • “Yes, I believe abortions should be allowed in the case of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is at risk. Congress has consistently provided such an exception in abortion related legislation. For example the Partial Birth Abortion Ban that is now law contains such an exception and the annual Hyde amendment that prohibits federal funds from being used to pay for abortions contains the same exception.”
  • Rated 47% by Planned Parenthood
  • “Abortions should occur as infrequently as possible and federal funds should not be used to pay for an abortion. I supported passage of the Partial Birth Abortion Ban and a prohibition against human cloning. Last year, during debate of health care reform legislation, I offered an amendment that, if successful, would have clarified that abortion is not a preventative service.”

Budget

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

  • “As we look for ways to grow our economy, we must also guard against Washington’s natural tendency to increase taxes and impose excessive regulations that drive jobs away.”
  • “Congress must also extend the tax relief provided in the 2001 and 2003 tax bills, which are set to expire at the end of this year, including the individual and corporate income taxes, the child tax credit and the death tax.”

Crimes

Crimes: Do you support mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent drug offenders?    Unknown Position

  • “Drug courts in Alaska have been instrumental in reducing recidivism and are an effective way to break the cycle of abuse and crime. Senator Murkowski has been a strong advocate of drug courts for many years, and has secured $41 million to support drug courts throughout Alaska — with locations including Ketchikan, Palmer, Bethel, Juneau and Anchorage.”
  • “Senator Lisa Murkowski today voted for S.3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act that contains several high-profile Alaska-related benefits — from making Alaska’s tough policy against synthetic drugs the national standard to improving the issue of drug shortages in Alaska and across the country.”

Economy

Economy: Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?     Unknown Position

  • “To set the nation on a more stable financial path, Senator Murkowski believes it’s critical for Congress to set sustainable funding levels for the federal government, reduce overall spending levels, and enact comprehensive tax reform and mandatory spending changes. For too long, the U.S. government has been spending more than it takes in and then borrowing huge sums of money to make up the difference.” (www.murkowski.senate.gov)
  • “The Obama administration clearly has no intention of ever helping this community, but we cannot simply leave the health and safety of nearly 1,000 Alaskans to chance. We need to end the needless pain and suffering caused by the status quo before an even greater tragedy occurs, and we can do that by approving this short, simple road.”
  • “In many cases, the solution is new spending — adding up to billions of dollars. It is important to remember that the vast majority of the nation’s infrastructure is privately owned and sustained and improved by private investment. At the same time, I understand that advancing our energy infrastructure will require some federal funding even within constrained budgets. But federal spending is not all that matters.”
  • Voted in favor of H.R.22 ” Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act”

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

  • “As we look for ways to grow our economy, we must also guard against Washington’s natural tendency to increase taxes and impose excessive regulations that drive jobs away. We cannot spend our way out of the current recession. The only long-term solution is to spur job creation by creating an atmosphere that encourages private-sector investment.”
  • “Allowing tax rates to rise back to their pre-2001 levels will have a direct impact on every tax payer’s shrinking amount of disposable income, and will harm small business owners who account for 75 percent of new job creation”
  • Voted in favor of S.Amdt.2573 “Tax Hike Prevention Act of 2012”

Education

Education: Do you generally support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?    Does Not Support

  • “[…]I have a seat at the table at which NCLB will be amended. From this position, I have the opportunity to improve the law from the ground up. I am also in a position to oppose inadvisable, one-size-fits-all ideas, such as the administration’s proposal to fire a struggling school’s principal as the first resort […]”
  • “I am more than pleased that the Every Student Succeeds Act will finally allow our States to judge our schools by more than just the test results and allow our teachers to do what they want to do to teach our kids and engage them in the art and love of learning and not just prepare for tests.”
  • “In addition to authorizing more funding, the bill ( the Head Start for School Readiness Act) expands eligibility for Head Start to more children, maintains local control over Head Start programs, and provides additional, guaranteed support for Indian Head Start programs.”

Energy

Energy and Environment: Do you support building the Keystone XL pipeline?   Supports

  • “U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, today applauded passage by the House of legislation approving construction of the Keystone XL[…]’Now that Congress has spoken overwhelmingly in favor of closer energy ties with Canada, it’s time for President Obama to make a decision.'”
  • Voted in favor of S.1 “A Bill to Approve the Keystone XL Pipeline.”
  • ” With his veto of the Keystone XL pipeline, President Obama turned his back on hard-working Americans, hard-working families, and the businesses that grow our nation’s economy. “

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

  • ” […] we need to put in place policies that encourage investment in developing renewable energy and transformative technologies. Americans have always been leaders in innovation and I believe we can find workable solutions to our energy needs and the challenges presented by climate change if we commit ourselves as a nation.”
  • “I support funding, research and tax and grant aid to make renewable and alternative energy truly economic. By reducing the cost of wind, geothermal, biomass, hydroelectric and ocean energy and helping further natural gas and nuclear power, we can make non-carbon emitting fuels economic, actually saving Alaskans money compared to diesel-generated power.”

Environment

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

  • Cosponsored and voted in favor of S.J.Res.23 “A Joint Resolution Providing for Congressional Disapproval Under Chapter 8 of Title 5, United States Code, of a Rule Submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency Relating to “Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions from New, Modified, and Reconstructed Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units”
  • “Putting aside the asserted merits of these various proposals, no one can dispute their far-reaching impacts; from effectively barring the construction of new coal-fired plants to raising the cost of gasoline by as much as 10 cents per gallon for the average consumer, even though our economy continues to sputter and unemployment remains high.”
  • “We write to express our concerns with your proposed rule for existing power plants emissions of greenhouse gases. Our primary concern is that the rule as proposed will result in significant electricity rate increases and additional energy costs for consumers.”

Gun Reform

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

  • Rated 92% by National Rifle Association
  • Voted in favor of S,Amdt.719 “Authorizes Reciprocity for the Carrying of Certain Concealed Firearms”
  • Rated 0% by Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
  • “I have long argued that the Second Amendment protects an individual right. The Supreme Court finally agreed with me in 2008, in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller.”

Health Care

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

  • “The Affordable Care Act has unfortunately become one of the most ironically named pieces of legislation for Alaska in history. Affordable for whom, exactly? Insurance costs here in Alaska continue to rise as Alaska’s health care providers are struggling to work within the law for our high-cost, high risk state.”
  • “In the 114th Congress, Senator Murkowski is continuing her work to repeal the Affordable Care Act.” (www.murkowski.senate.gov)
  • Voted in favor of S.A. 13 “Repealing the Federal Health Care Law”

Immigration

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

  • “With regard to undocumented aliens, I believe that those who illegally entered or remained in the United States should not be granted amnesty.”
  • “I support the goal of the DREAM Act which is to enable children who were brought to the United States by their parents to earn citizenship through service in the Armed Forces or pursuit of higher education. I do not believe that children are to blame for the decision of their parents to enter or remain in the United States unlawfully.”
  • “I said this bill has teeth and heart. This bill improves our border security by doubling the number of border patrol agents along the Southwest border and strengthening the fence to stem the number of illegal entries into our nation. Additionally, this bill includes 21st century technological rigor, through an improved entry/exit visa tracking system that ensures visitors do not extend their stay, as well as mandatory use of the Internet tool e-Verify to make sure that employers hire authorized employees. This bill also creates a lengthy and costly 13-year path to citizenship for those who are already here and places them at the back of the line, to create penalties for those who have broken the law while not pulling families apart.”

Justice System

Justice System:    Crime: Do you support mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent drug offenders?    Unknown Position

  • “Drug courts in Alaska have been instrumental in reducing recidivism and are an effective way to break the cycle of abuse and crime. Senator Murkowski has been a strong advocate of drug courts for many years, and has secured $41 million to support drug courts throughout Alaska — with locations including Ketchikan, Palmer, Bethel, Juneau and Anchorage.”
  • “Senator Lisa Murkowski today voted for S.3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act that contains several high-profile Alaska-related benefits — from making Alaska’s tough policy against synthetic drugs the national standard to improving the issue of drug shortages in Alaska and across the country.”

Legal

Legal:    Crime: Do you support mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent drug offenders?     Unknown Position

  • “Drug courts in Alaska have been instrumental in reducing recidivism and are an effective way to break the cycle of abuse and crime. Senator Murkowski has been a strong advocate of drug courts for many years, and has secured $41 million to support drug courts throughout Alaska — with locations including Ketchikan, Palmer, Bethel, Juneau and Anchorage.”
  • “Senator Lisa Murkowski today voted for S.3187, the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act that contains several high-profile Alaska-related benefits — from making Alaska’s tough policy against synthetic drugs the national standard to improving the issue of drug shortages in Alaska and across the country.”

Marriage

Marriage: Do you support same-sex marriage?     Supports

  • “I support the right of all Americans to marry the person they love and choose because I believe doing so promotes both values: it keeps politicians out of the most private and personal aspects of peoples’ lives – while also encouraging more families to form and more adults to make a lifetime commitment to one another.” (www.politico.com)
  • Rated 100% by Human Rights Campaign
  • “While my support for same sex civil marriage is something I believe in, I am equally committed to guaranteeing that religious freedoms remain inviolate, so that churches and other religious institutions can continue to determine and practice their own definition of marriage. […] I support marriage equality and support the government getting out of the way to let that happen.”

National Security

National Security: Do you support increased American intervention in Iraq and Syria beyond air support?    Unknown Position

“But as to another threat — that posed by ISIS on our nation — there are no good options. I was deeply skeptical of the President’s ideas when he presented them last week, and watching his own military leaders disagree with him in the days since has only heightened my concerns. While I continue to have my doubts, a limited authority to equip and train the moderate factions in Syria against these Islamic extremists is among the least bad options, and I am encouraged that today’s bill contains some tangible short-term reporting requirements.”


Social Security

Social Security: Do you support allowing individuals to divert a portion of their Social Security taxes into personal retirement accounts?     Unknown Position

  • “Social Security is headed down an unsustainable path and Congress must work in a bipartisan manner to ensure its solvency. For those Alaskans currently receiving Social Security, I am opposed to cutting or changing any benefits. But for the next generation, we must accept that changes will have to be made to the program and that means considering ideas such as raising the age of eligibility and awaiting the reports of two Commissions currently studying possible reforms.”

Taxes

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

  • “As we look for ways to grow our economy, we must also guard against Washington’s natural tendency to increase taxes and impose excessive regulations that drive jobs away.”
  • “Congress must also extend the tax relief provided in the 2001 and 2003 tax bills, which are set to expire at the end of this year, including the individual and corporate income taxes, the child tax credit and the death tax.”
