After Reading Josh Harder’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: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?     Pro-Choice

  • “I was fired up to see how many District 10 residents represented the fight to protect women’s rights.” (www.facebook.com)
  • “Advocate for a woman’s right to choose as well as access to affordable and quality reproductive services.” (www.harderforcongress.com)

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

  • “.@RepJeffDenham just voted to raise taxes on California families. Nothing reflects the holiday spirit better than raising taxes on working people while giving away billions in tax cuts to corporations and the wealthy.” (twitter.com)

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

  • “This week, on a national stage, I made sure the Central Valley’s voice was heard – we need better health care and we need Medicare for All.” (twitter.com)
  • Rated 90% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “Every single paycheck folks pay into Medicare and Social Security – these are EARNED benefits. Cutting them is literally stealing from folks who work for a living.” (twitter.com)
  • “Thank you for hosting me California Alliance of Retired Americans! One of my main priorities in Congress is making sure our senior citizens have access to the social security they have worked hard for during the span of their careers. #CARA #SocialSecurity #CA10.” (twitter.com)

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

  • “Corporations aren’t born, they can’t vote, and they shouldn’t be able to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence our elections. We need to take their power away and to do that we need to amend the constitution.” (www.harderforcongress.com)
  • “Corporate greed and Super PACs are corrupting our political system and nowhere is that more obvious than in our electoral process.” (www.harderforcongress.com)

  • Voted in favor of HR 7120 – George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020.
  • “We need a compliment to the policing reform efforts we’ve led in the House — and that’s just what this bill is,” said Representative Josh Harder. “Besides the structural issues with policing addressed in the Justice in Policing Act, we need to take deliberate steps to improve relations between police and the communities they serve through better training and thoughtful recruitment. This legislation will make that happen without changing law enforcement budgets.”

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Unknown Position

Economy: Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?    Does Not Support
  • “Tax breaks for corporations and tax hikes for middle class families isn’t Tax Reform – it’s a scam.” (www.facebook.com)
  • “Plain and simple, the Republican Tax Scam is a massive middle finger to California families. Corporate taxes are cut permanently, but middle class families will actually see their taxes go up over the next few years.” (www.facebook.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

  • “On the first flight back to Washington to vote for small business relief.” (twitter.com)
  • “What are the @SBAgov and Treasury doing? The PPP program I voted to establish is for SMALL BUSINESSES. These big corporations should never have been eligible in the first place.” (twitter.com)

Guns: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?      Supports
  • “Inspiring to see over 100 students from Tracy High School, Merrill West High School and Kimball High School along with community groups like Tracy Crime Stoppers take initiative to put together this Town Hall to address school shootings… we NEED members of Congress to put the safety of our high school students above special interests in Washington D.C. Safe schools should be a priority- no exceptions.” (www.facebook.com)
  • “In California, we’ve seen a huge reduction in gun deaths thanks to our common sense reforms. That’s why I don’t want to change anything for gun owners here in the Central Valley, but take our reforms and institute them nationwide. Not only will this help protect the people living across the country, but it will also reduce the ability for criminals, domestic abusers, and terrorists here in the Central Valley to get their hands on guns.” (www.harderforcongress.com)

  • “Our campaign is staunchly in support of Medicare for All.” (www.facebook.com)
  • “That’s exactly what I plan on doing when elected to Congress through my support for Medicare for All.” (www.facebook.com)

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

  • “People who have the coronavirus — or have to self-quarantine — shouldn’t have to worry about losing their job or falling behind on rent or their mortgage,” said Rep. Harder. “Paid sick leave is just obvious — but we shouldn’t put all of the strain on local businesses — my bill supports workers and their families without forcing business to shoulder the financial burden alone. My hope is that we can get this rolled into the larger package the House will vote on soon.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 6201 – Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
  • “Late last night the House passed a bipartisan, emergency Coronavirus bill to guarantee that testing is FREE, provide folks emergency paid sick leave, and food assistance for those who need it. I was proud to write and lead the paid sick leave portion of the bill.” (twitter.com)

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

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

  • Signed a letter stating: ” 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.”
  • “John Bolton may be the only person left in America who still thinks invading Iraq was a great idea…this is a scary appointment.” (twitter.com)

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “I write today to express my concern regarding tariffs on printed books which would amount to a “Bible tax.” The recently proposed tariffs on an additional $300 billion in Chinese goods, including printed materials, could have significant negative effects on our religious groups, churches, schools, ministries, and nonprofit organizations.”
  • “This trade war has to end. The president is shooting from the hip on his trade policy and it’s Central Valley almond farmers that are left holding the bag. India is our top export partner and we just can’t afford to take this hit. I’m going to continue pushing the administration and the USDA to stop this devastating cycle of retaliatory tariffs. We need to be supporting our farmers, not cutting off our markets and depressing our economy.”
