After Reading Raul Grijalva’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.

 


Administrative Priorities:

Quality public education, good wages, the right for workers to organize and protecting the environment are some of my top priorities. As Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee, I lead the fight to address climate change and preserve public lands for future generations. As a senior member of the Committee on Education and Labor, I fight to provide resources to our faltering education system and make access to debt-free higher education a reality. I’ve played a leadership role in protecting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. I’m a proponent of comprehensive immigration reform and protecting DACA recipients and their families.??


Abortion

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

  • No Further Information

Budget

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

  • The Trump/GOP tax scam gave enormous, permanent tax breaks to large corporations and the wealthiest one percent while leaving working Americans and small businesses with temporary crumbs. This is despite corporate profits and CEO salaries soaring at historic levels at the same time that wages for ordinary Americans continue to stagnate. It is long overdue for the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share and ensure that every American has the same opportunity to prosper.

  • “Just a month after his tragic death at the hands of police brutality, George Floyd’s legacy remains alive in the legislation we passed today,” said Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva. “The legislation doesn’t just ensure that bad officers face consequences, but also begins to address the institutional issues that have allowed racist policies and institutionalized bias to flourish in police departments across the country. We sent a clear message to the American public today: Accountability and transparency matter.” https://votesmart.org/public-statement/1440692/rep-grijalva-votes-for-george-floyd-justice-in-policing-act#.X00MkPhKhfU
  • Voted in favor of HR 7120 – George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020. https://votesmart.org/bill/votes/73007

Defense

Defense:  Do you support increasing defense spending?     Supports

  • The truth of the matter is that the Department of Defense has not undergone a proper audit in its department’s history. The GOP champions itself as the party of �fiscal responsibility� but turns a blind eye when it comes to defense spending. The DoD should be subject to the same financial accountability and transparency as any other department of our government.

Education

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

  • Title 9 support for disabled children, Title 1 support for children from low-income families, funding for English as a Second Language programs, and other standards that ensure equal access to education must be followed and not left solely to the discretion of states.

Energy

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

  • No Further Information

Environment

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

  • No Further Information

Gun Reform

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

  • I support commonsense gun safety legislation that will protect our communities while at the same time upholding every American’s second amendment right. This includes closing the gunshow loophole and guaranteeing universal background checks, reinstating the ban on assault weapons and prohibiting bump stocks, banning high capacity magazines, and properly funding gun violence research.

Health Care

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

  • We must move to a Medicare-For-All system that covers everyone–regardless of zip code, race, or financial status. A universal system will drive down costs by keeping uninsured people out of emergency rooms, which inflates costs for everyone else. Instead of being nickel-and-dimed, surprised-billed and bankrupted by medical bills; people will get the care they need without the stress. Secondly, we need investments in health infrastructure, workforce, research, and public health preparedness. Trump slashed infectious disease and global health research and Republicans consistently attack funding in the ACA. The lack of investment has cost our country everything.

Trade

Trade:   Do you generally support removing barriers to international trade (for example: tariffs, quotas, etc.)?     Does Not Support

  • Free trade agreements have typically been a disaster for American workers. For too long, deals made in the name of ‘free trade’ have outsourced American jobs and allowed corporations to skirt environmental regulations and their responsibilities. I am not opposed to smart trade policy that protects American workers. Our trade deals must not be sweetheart deals to corporations but instead but working families first.
