After Reading Tom O’halleran’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?   Pro-Choice

  • Endorsed and rated 100% by Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
  • Signed a letter stating: “Birth control is health care, plain and simple.”
  • “Roe v. Wade affirmed that women across the country have a right to safe, legal medical services that they need. Women’s choices are between themselves, their families, their doctors, & their faiths. Women’s health, especially in rural communities, cannot be put at risk.” (twitter.com)

Budget

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?     Supports

  • “Reform tax code so that the wealthiest pay their fair share of taxes. Millionaires and billionaires shouldn’t be able to exploit tax loopholes to pay a lower effective tax rate than middle class families. Even billionaires like Warren Buffet acknowledges this. We need a top-to-bottom overhaul of the tax code that is fair to everyone.” (www.tomohalleran.com)
  • “It is irresponsible for Congress to consider passing a tax reform package that saddles our children and grandchildren with trillions of dollars in debt. Unfortunately, that is exactly what Congressional leaders are trying to do before the end of the year. If Congress passes this legislation, we will be delivering massive tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and multinational corporations while sending our national debt skyrocketing by nearly $2 trillion. That means the next generation will pay more, and we will not be able to keep our promises to our seniors and veterans.”

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

  • “I am focused on protecting and strengthening Social Security and Medicare, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, and ensuring seniors have access to safe, affordable housing.” (twitter.com)
  • Endorsed by National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.
  • “Tom will protect Social Security and Medicare from those who support dangerous schemes to privatize the programs.”
  • “Tom has a proven track record of protecting Social Security and Medicare from those who support dangerous schemes to privatize the programs, hand them over the Wall Street or turn them into “vouchers.” He knows that Social Security is not an “entitlement program”—it is a commitment that has been made to America’s seniors after a lifetime of work. Over decades, America’s workers and small businesses have paid into the Social Security trust fund, and now they should not have their retirement security threatened by politicians and special interests in Washington. Social Security is also crucial to the stability of our economy. That is why Tom will always fight against any attempt to privatize Social Security or reduce its benefits.” (www.tomohalleran.com)

Campaign Finance

Campaign Finance: Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?     Supports

  • “We need to find ways to limit the impact of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.”
  • “Congress must act and pass campaign finance laws that promote transparency and accountability in our political system. #AZ01” (twitter.com)
  • Endorsed by End Citizens United.
  • “A year ago I voted to pass H.R. 1, the #ForthePeopleAct, legislation to get dark money out of politics, safeguard Americans’ right to vote, and restore ethics and accountability in Washington. I remain committed to ending Citizens United and protecting our democracy.” (twitter.com)

Crimes

Crimes: Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct?    Does Not Support

  • “The protection and equitable treatment of all Americans is not a partisan issue,” said O’Halleran following the bill’s passage. “Our vote today is not a cure-all; it is a critical first step to addressing systemic racism and rebuilding broken trust between police and our communities. We must work in a bipartisan way to keep these important changes coming. I encourage the Senate to take up and pass this important legislation as soon as possible.”
  • “As a former law enforcement officer myself, I know how important it is that those who have sworn to protect and serve are held to the highest standards. Every American deserves to feel safe in his or her community.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 7120 – George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020.

Defense

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Supports

  • “This legislation will give our troops a well-deserved raise, improve readiness and capability, and invest in the modernization of our military.”
  • “I am proud to support this bipartisan legislation that invests in our military and makes America more secure,” said Rep. O’Halleran. “It gives our military leaders the long-term strategic planning capabilities they need to complete critical missions that protect our nation. This legislation will give our troops a well-deserved raise, improve readiness and capability, and invest in the modernization of our military.”
  • “This bipartisan legislation is critical for securing the safety of our nation, and it supports the more than 18,000 servicemembers and their families in Arizona,” said Rep. O’Halleran. “It brings Arizona a critical boost across our installations and our defense community, including Davis-Monthan and Luke Air Force Bases, Ft. Huachuca, Yuma Proving Ground, and others. After years of dangerous cuts, this bill takes an important step forward in ensuring our military remains the strongest in the world by giving our troops the resources they need to succeed.”
  • “AZ servicemembers, military families, & veterans are some of the most patriotic men & women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. I was proud to support them by passing the FY19 #NDAA. After years of dangerous cuts, the NDAA gives AZ military installations a much-needed boost.” (twitter.com)

Economy

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

  • “Connecting rural communities to reliable broadband will create jobs & grow local economies. Investing in 21st century infrastructure will expand education opportunities & ensure small, locally-owned businesses & ag producers have access to national & global markets.” (twitter.com)
  • “By investing in education, job-training, research, and infrastructure, we can keep our competitive advantage as a state and country and prepare for the jobs of the future. To keep our competitive edge, we must also modernize our tax and regulatory system to foster innovation and replace outdated or burdensome regulations. ” www.tomohalleran.com/issues/jobs-and-the-economy
  • “Investing in rural high-speed internet infrastructure will unlock economic and educational opportunities for rural and tribal communities that have often gone underserved,”
  • “I am proud to support legislation that cuts wasteful spending and holds our government agencies accountable to the American people.” (twitter.com)

Economy

Economy: Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?    Does Not Support

  • “Support manufacturing through tax breaks. Increase tax incentives for companies that create quality, long-term manufacturing jobs in the United States.” (www.tomohalleran.com)
  • “We should not be giving permanent tax cuts to multinational corporations while we create uncertainly for middle-class families.”
  • “Align the tax code to incentivize employers to keep manufacturing jobs in the U.S. We should review what tax breaks are provided to companies that have moved manufacturing jobs abroad. We then would align the code with the goal of keeping jobs in the U.S and hopefully having businesses return.” (www.tomohalleran.com)
  • “Tax cuts for companies that share profits with their employees. While there are many tax loopholes that have been abused, I support using the tax code to incentivize putting more money in the pockets of working people.” (www.tomohalleran.com)

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

  • “Today, I had the honor of presiding as the House received the CARES Act, legislation to provide much-needed relief for #AZ01 families, health care workers, and small businesses. Tomorrow, I look forward to voting in favor of this important bill.” (twitter.com)
  • “Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the CARES Act. Families and businesses across America and Arizona are struggling, and healthcare workers and first responders are being asked to perform their important work without proper protective gear. In my district, the Navajo Nation is dealing with a disproportionately high amount of COVID-19 cases. There were 71 confirmed cases in the community as of last night. This bill allocates over $1 billion to the Indian healthcare service and to Tribal healthcare providers and over $400 million to Tribal governments for equipment. I urge my fellow colleagues to vote for this legislative package that will provide relief to struggling American families and ensure the Tribal communities are not overlooked.”
  • “Small businesses across #AZ01 are relying on PPP funds to keep the lights on, but endless red tape stands in their way. I cosponsored the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act to ensure this program is working for the mom-and-pop shops that need these funds the most.” (twitter.com)

Education

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

  • “There is no reason that teachers across America should be some of the lowest paid professionals in the workforce. Their jobs are critical to the economic vitality of our country. I introduced H.Res.58 to support increased public school teacher pay and education funding.” (twitter.com)
  • “Public education is the cornerstone of a strong economy in our state & across the nation. This #NationalRed4Ed Day, I am wearing red to show my support for our hardworking teachers and support staff.” (twitter.com)
  • “I have urged congressional leaders to fully fund the Bureau of Indian Education’s New School Replacement Program. We have an obligation to provide a quality education & a safe school environment for students across Indian Country.” (twitter.com)
  • Rated 100% by National Education Association.

Energy: Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, geo-thermal)?     Supports
  • “From raging forest fires to decades-long droughts, every corner of our state has felt the effects of climate change. Today, we took decisive, bipartisan action to address this very real threat to the livelihood of Arizonans and the American people,” O’Halleran said following the vote. “We have more work to do to invest in renewable energy infrastructure, especially in rural parts of the country. I look forward to continue these efforts with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle.”
  • Rated 97% by League of Conservation Voters (2019).
  • Voted in favor of HR 9 – Climate Action Now Act.
  • “We have more work to do to invest in renewable energy infrastructure, especially in rural parts of the country. I look forward to continue these efforts with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle.”

Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?    Supports

  • Voted in favor of HR 9 – Climate Action Now Act.
  • Rated 87% by Environment America.
  • Signed a letter stating: “We need to invest in projects that enhance climate resilience, while also reducing pollution and carbon emissions.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “We write to express our concern regarding your recent National Security Strategy, which fails to recognize climate change as a threat to the United States. We have heard from scientists, military leaders, and civilian personnel who believe that climate change is indeed a direct threat to America’s national security and to the stability of the world at large. As global temperatures become more volatile, sea levels rise, and landscapes change, our military installations and our communities are increasingly at risk of devastation. It is imperative that the United States address this growing geopolitical threat.”

Gun Reform

Gun Reform: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?      Supports

  • Rated 0% by National Rifle Association.
  • “Congress must immediately begin to have a serious discussion about the violence plaguing communities across America, and we must take action to keep deadly weapons out of the hands of those who will try to do us harm.”
  • “We can, and must, work to close the gaps in our mental health treatment system, allow the CDC to do necessary research, invest in community-based violence prevention programs, and bolster law enforcement by strengthening our background check system and providing the necessary resources to address school security.”

Health Care

Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)?    Does Not Support

  • “The idea that we can sit by and allow access to affordable, quality health care to be taken away from those with the most need is unconscionable. I am committed to finding commonsense solutions to address the problems of our health care system by working across the aisle.”
  • “The Affordable Care Act is not perfect,” continued O’Halleran. “Efforts to fix components of the law have fallen flat. I am ready to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to protect the investments we have made in rural and tribal health care and bring relief to Arizonans burdened with the rising cost of coverage and care.”
  • “Signed into law on March 23, 2010, the #AffordableCareAct has been protecting, expanding, and improving access to health care for millions of American families for 10 years. I will continue fighting to protect the ACA for the countless #AZ01 families who depend on it.” (twitter.com)

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

  • Voted in favor of HR 6201 – Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
  • “BREAKING: The Senate passed our bipartisan Families First Coronavirus Response Act, ensuring free testing for COVID-19 for ALL Americans, expanded paid sick leave, and nutrition assistance. This bill now heads to the President’s desk for a signature. #AZ01”. (twitter.com)
  • “Late Friday night, the House voted to pass the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, legislation that ensures free testing for COVID-19, extended paid sick leave for families affected, expanded nutrition insurance, and additional protections for first responders and public health workers. I urge the Senate to take up and pass this legislation as quickly as possible.” (www.facebook.com)

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

  • “I am focused on protecting and strengthening Social Security and Medicare, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, and ensuring seniors have access to safe, affordable housing.” (twitter.com)
  • Endorsed by National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.
  • “Tom will protect Social Security and Medicare from those who support dangerous schemes to privatize the programs.”
  • “Tom has a proven track record of protecting Social Security and Medicare from those who support dangerous schemes to privatize the programs, hand them over the Wall Street or turn them into “vouchers.” He knows that Social Security is not an “entitlement program”—it is a commitment that has been made to America’s seniors after a lifetime of work.

Social Security is also crucial to the stability of our economy. That is why Tom will always fight against any attempt to privatize Social Security or reduce its benefits.” (www.tomohalleran.com)

Immigration

Immigration: Do you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?    Does Not Support

  • “Tom supports immigration reform that secures our border, keeps families together, and meets the needs of our economy. He fully supports the DREAM Act, which allows young people who were brought to this country as children the chance to pursue their education, join the military, or contribute to our workforce as hardworking doctors, teachers, scientists, and more.” (www.tomohalleran.com)
  • “As I have said before, our immigration system must be reformed through a bipartisan process that includes an investment in 21st century technology and additional support for border patrol agents,” continued O’Halleran. “These are proven methods that secure our border and stem the flow of illegal immigration. A border wall is not.”
  • “I cannot support a bill that uses American tax dollars to fund a border wall and pays for it by making deep cuts to critical, proven programs that keep our families safe and allow our communities to grow and thrive.”

Immigration: Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?     Does Not Support

  • “Tom supports immigration reform that secures our border, keeps families together, and meets the needs of our economy. He fully supports the DREAM Act, which allows young people who were brought to this country as children the chance to pursue their education, join the military, or contribute to our workforce as hardworking doctors, teachers, scientists, and more.” (www.tomohalleran.com)
  • “Arizonans have been greatly impacted by Congress’ inability to pass a bipartisan budget agreement that invests in the future of our country and our national security, and young DREAMers are living in uncertainty while they wait for a DACA solution. I am proud of the bipartisan work the Problem Solvers Caucus to find solutions to the challenges we face as a nation, and I am confident that this proposal can find broad support from both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. It is time for Congress to step up and take action; the American people are tired of waiting.”
  • “Now more than ever, Congress must act. I am ready to work alongside my Republican and Democratic colleagues to protect DREAMers and pass bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.”
  • “I have met with many Arizona DREAMers. They are doctors, teachers, students, and our neighbors, and they contribute to our local, state, and national economies every single day. They have been promised access to the American Dream, and today we are delivering that promise. We must pass bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform that addresses the flaws in the system, but this is a good first start that will allow DREAMers to continue living and thriving in the only home they’ve ever known.”

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?     Does Not Support

Military Spending

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

  • “This legislation will give our troops a well-deserved raise, improve readiness and capability, and invest in the modernization of our military.”
  • “I am proud to support this bipartisan legislation that invests in our military and makes America more secure,” said Rep. O’Halleran. “It gives our military leaders the long-term strategic planning capabilities they need to complete critical missions that protect our nation. This legislation will give our troops a well-deserved raise, improve readiness and capability, and invest in the modernization of our military.”

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)?      Does Not Support

  • “No American wants to see an escalation of force or a large-scale military conflict. We must focus on deescalation, maintaining our partnership with the Iraqi government, & precise, diplomatic initiatives that will lead to a peaceful, non-nuclear Iran #AZ01.” (twitter.com)
  • “Achieving lasting peace and a complete and permanent denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is a priority for America. Efforts to achieve this through the full force of American diplomacy, strength, and leadership should be respected.”
  • “Our national security and the safety of our children is not a partisan issue,” continued O’Halleran. “We must continue to curb the rise of terrorism in the Middle East by preventing the sale of arms to and from Iran and halting the country’s ballistic missile program.”
  • “We cannot allow Iran to develop long-range nuclear missiles, continue to fund terrorism, and destabilize governments throughout the Middle East. These actions should not go unchecked. The Administration and Congress must work with allies to establish sanctions and work to limit Iran’s extremist activities. I urge President Trump to listen to the bipartisan consensus in Congress and recertify the Iran Nuclear Deal while we work with our allies to strengthen it.”

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

  • “No American wants to see an escalation of force or a large-scale military conflict. We must focus on deescalation, maintaining our partnership with the Iraqi government, & precise, diplomatic initiatives that will lead to a peaceful, non-nuclear Iran #AZ01.” (twitter.com)
  • Voted in favor of H J Res 37 – Directing the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress.
  • “The resolution passed in the House today reiterates that only Congress has the power to declare war, as laid out in Article I of the Constitution. It prevents the executive branch from acting unilaterally in response to the developing situation with Iran, while preserving the president’s power to act in self-defense of the nation if a future attack against US forces were to occur. Today, I am also calling on Congress to revise the authorizations for use of military force (AUMF), that were enacted in 2001 and 2002. Eighteen years have passed since this resolution was agreed upon in Congress; new developments demand that the AUMF is carefully reevaluated and adapted to reflect current geopolitical circumstances so that we may continue to develop a forward-looking strategy for the US-Iran relationship.”

Trade

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

  • “This decision to raise tariffs is going to hurt our economy and raise the prices of goods for working families. I am deeply concerned that tying our trade relationships with border security will derail the ongoing trade negotiations. Congress must act to address our broken immigration system, and this administration cannot continue to weaponize international trade at the expense of hardworking Americans.”
  • “Protect American workers: Any trade agreements the United States enters into must include protections for American workers and American jobs. The TPP agreement in its current form is unfair to American workers, and I reject it.” (www.tomohalleran.com)
  • “While we must fully support American businesses and ensure they are being treated fairly by our trading partners, these actions only serve to erode our international relationships,” continued O’Halleran. “The American people, and especially those living in rural communities, should not have to pay the price for the Administration’s “shoot from the hip” approach to international trade and diplomacy.”
  • “This Administration’s harmful, unilateral trade decisions are putting rural #AZ01 at risk. Now more than ever, I urge @SpeakerRyan to cancel the rest of August recess & bring lawmakers back to Washington to stop this trade war in its tracks.” (twitter.com)
