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.
  • “ACA repeal & defunding Planned Parenthood wld do real harm to real people. If DC politicians won’t hold public hearings we will. #PhxPPForum.” (twitter.com)
  • “I trust women, their families and doctors regarding decisions about their own bodies—period. Those decisions should never be criminalized. Our fight to protect women’s reproductive rights didn’t start this week in Alabama, and it won’t end there. We can’t back down.” (twitter.com)

Pro-Choice/Pro-Life


Budget

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?   Unknown Position
  • “If we want to correct that wrong, we should do so holistically–not in a piecemeal fashion. Lifting the SALT deduction in this manner pushes benefits to just a few states and penalizes many Arizonans with a tax increase. I simply cannot support a proposal that helps the wealthiest taxpayers in other parts of the country at the expense of Arizona.”
  • “”The Presdent and the previous Congress took the wrong approach when they passed major changes to the tax code that benefited the wealthiest Americans and added to our nation’s growing debt. If we want to correct that wrong, we should do so holistically–not in a piecemeal fashion. Lifting the SALT deduction in this manner pushes benefits to just a few states and penalizes many Arizonans with a tax increase. I simply cannot support a proposal that helps the wealthiest taxpayers in other parts of the country at the expense of Arizona.”
  • “As mayor, I’ve fought for the middle class and measure each policy by how it impacts working families in Phoenix. The proposed tax bill fails that test — it adds $1.5 trillion to our national debt, ends health care for millions and benefits only the wealthiest few.” (twitter.com)

Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?     Supports
  • “The proposed Trump budget cuts $1.4 trillion from health care, including a shameful $845 billion cut to Medicare. This attack on health care for our seniors is irresponsible and cruel.” (twitter.com)
  • Rated 100% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • Signed a letter stating: “Building upon your work and the work of the New Democrat Coalition last Congress, we urge your committees to deliver on the promises made to our constituents by prioritizing strengthening the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and continuing the path toward universal affordable coverage.”
  • “Who knows what @realDonaldTrump will say in Phoenix tonight. But I bet he won’t mention his plan to: cut Medicare by $500 million, cut Medicaid by $900 million, cut Social Security by $24 billion, cut student aid by $170 billion. I’ll hold the line against these #TrumpCuts.” (twitter.com)

Campaign Finance

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

  • Endorsed by End Citizens United.
  • “Our first order of business in 2019 was passing #HR1, the #ForThePeople Act. It’s a set of bold reforms that will clean up corruption, expose foreign money in our politics, strengthen election security, protect voters’ rights and return power back to the American people.” (twitter.com)

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

  • “Today we vote on long overdue legislation–to bring greater accountability and transparency into policing to help make everyone more safe,” said Stanton. “The ability to end racism in our country is beyond the reach of Congress. We don’t have the power to change every heart and mind. But we do have the power to change the law. To make it more just. To combat structural racism through measurable, meaningful reforms. Change starts here, today.”
  • “The bill would hold officers accountable for reckless misconduct in federal courts, including reforming qualified immunity, as well as improve transparency in policing by collecting better and more accurate data of police misconduct and use-of-force from state and local agencies. Finally, the bill would make lynching a federal hate crime for the first time in American history.”

Supporting the movement of people and goods on our nation’s roads, railways, bridges, ports, and airports is crucial to driving investment in our communities. Working together on infrastructure is an area where we can show the American people that we are fighting to deliver on this shared priority. The New Democrat Coalition is eager to take advantage of this opportunity to bring our infrastructure into the 21st Century, and we look forward to working with you in a bipartisan way to achieve this goal.”
  • “Earlier this year, the House passed the Save The Internet Act, which included my amendment to help promote accessible and affordable broadband service on tribal land. This is an issue that we’re going to keep fighting for. #RuralBroadbandDay.” (twitter.com)

  • “Last week, the bipartisan PPP Flexibility Act was signed into law to address issues raised by small business owners in Arizona and throughout the country. This legislation gives small businesses additional time and flexibility to get back on their feet.” (twitter.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)?     Unknown Position
  • “It remains painfully clear that the Administration lacks a coherent Middle East and West Asia policy, and there are still many unanswered questions. I am grateful that no Americans were harmed during last night’s missile attack in Iraq. But it is naive to conclude that Iran is “standing down.” In the last week, the Iranian regime announced it will no longer abide by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and has restarted its nuclear weapons program. That poses serious near- and long-term risks to our national security and the security of our allies.”
  • “Congress has for too long abdicated its responsibility concerning the conflict in the Middle East. Today I voted to make it clear that Congress must assert its role in the discussion surrounding violent conflict with Iran. The American people deserve to be heard.” (twitter.com)
  • Signed a letter stating: “For the past 17 years, Americans have shouldered the burden created by war in Iraq and subsequent regional conflicts. The American people deserve leaders who are willing to have a serious discussion about the wisdom and costs of additional conflict. We urge you to engage in this discussion with us so that we can learn from the mistakes of the past and ensure our national security. As you send our nation’s sons and daughters far from home to secure our embassies and interests in the region, it is only right that you provide the American people with a detailed explanation of your strategy and goals.”

National Security: Do you support reducing military intervention in Middle East conflicts?      Unknown Position
  • “Today the House—with overwhelming bipartisan support—opposed President Trump’s impulsive decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria. Shortly after, the White House canceled an all-member classified briefing on the situation the President’s actions have caused.” (twitter.com)
  • Signed a letter stating: “Increase pressure on Iran and Russia with respect to activities in Syria. Working with our allies and partners, we urge you to maintain and increase pressure on Iran and Russia to constrain their destabilizing activities. America must continue economic and diplomatic efforts to counter Iran’s support for Hezbollah and other terrorist groups as well as Russia’s support for the brutal Assad regime. We encourage full implementation of sanctions authorized in the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), a broadly supported bipartisan bill that you signed into law. Clear and sustained American action and close coordination with our allies and partners can send an important message of resolve to malign actors in the region. Increase pressure on Hezbollah. By forcefully and fully implementing the Hizballah International Financing Prevention Act of 2015, the Hizballah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act of 2018, and other sanctions aimed at Hezbollah and those who fund it, America can reduce their ability to threaten and challenge Israel. Additionally, we must continue to press UNIFIL to carry out its U.N. Security Council mandate, including investigating and reporting the presence of arms and tunnels on Israel’s border.”
  • 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.
  • Signed a letter stating: “For the past 17 years, Americans have shouldered the burden created by war in Iraq and subsequent regional conflicts. The American people deserve leaders who are willing to have a serious discussion about the wisdom and costs of additional conflict.

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “Canada and Mexico are by far our most important trading partners, and we need to restore certainty in these critical relationships that support millions of American jobs.”
  • “It is irresponsible and self-defeating to make threats that destabilize our national economy and cause consumers and businesses to lose confidence in the global market,” Stanton said of Trump’s tariff threats. “This isn’t the way to govern.”
