After Reading Jackie Speier’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

  • Rated 100% by NARAL Pro-Choice America.
  • “Finally, I believe women should have ready access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including the constitutional right to legal and safe abortion services.” (www.jackiespeier.org)

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?     Supports
  • Signed a letter stating: “With that in mind, we read with interest your recent joint statement with the Senate Majority Leader suggesting that these required across-the-board cuts “will not happen.” These cuts would be a direct consequence of your massive $1.5 trillion deficit increase from tax cuts for the wealthy, so it is confusing to hear that you and Leader McConnell “will work to ensure these spending cuts are prevented.” We are curious how you plan to do that, as the obvious solution would be not to pass those tax cuts in the first place.”
  • Rated 8% by the National Tax Limitation Committee.

Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?    Supports
  • “Because we Democrats need to not just defend Social Security, but to strengthen it.”
  • Rated 100% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • Signed a letter stating: “In addition to the looming $25 billion Medicare cut next month, enacting your tax bill will result in widespread chaos to the health insurance market. The Senate bill’s elimination of the individual mandate, according to the Congressional Budget Office, will increase premiums and 13 million Americans will lose their health insurance coverage. Likewise, seniors and those preparing for retirement are rightly nervous that your recent pronouncement that “we’re going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform, which is how you tackle the debt and the deficit” means that cuts to Medicare and Social Security benefits are the necessary next step to pay for the added deficits your tax cuts would produce.”

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

  • Voted in favor of H.R. 1 – For the People Act of 2019.
  • “In Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court opened the floodgates for money in elections. The Supreme Court must overturn these misguided decisions, but in the absence of action from the Court, I believe Congress must take action to restore our democracy. I support a Constitutional Amendment to provide Congress with the ability to regulate campaign contributions, including contributions to entities like Political Action Committees and so-called “Super PACs” that can receive unlimited and undisclosed donations. I have also supported legislation to remake our public campaign finance system to make it a more viable option for candidates to decrease corporate influence on campaigns.”

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
  • “I proudly joined my colleagues today in voting to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020, a first step in healing the cancer of institutional and systemic racism that has corrupted our most sacred institutions and society,” Rep. Speier said. “I am grateful my bill, the Closing the Law Enforcement Consent Loophole Act, was included. It would make it a crime for law enforcement officers to engage in a sexual act with anyone in their custody. Sexual violence is the second most frequently reported form of police misconduct after excessive force and Black women are particularly vulnerable to this gross abuse of power. You cannot give consent while you are under arrest or in custody, and it is egregious that law enforcement officers to this day claim consent when accused of sexually assault. I urge our colleagues in the Senate to take up and pass this transformative legislation and work with us to put our country on the path of achieving true equity and equality.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 7120 – George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020.

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Does Not Support

  • Rated 0% by Center for Security Policy.
  • “As a member of the House Armed Services Committee and Ranking Member of the Military Personnel Subcommittee, I have the utmost respect for the sacrifices made by our military servicemen and women,” Rep. Speier said. “But I cannot support a defense bill that busts our budget caps by forcing the Pentagon to buy costly, unreliable equipment they don’t even want. It is unconscionable to spend billions of dollars on 20 F-35 aircraft and two Littoral Combat Ships that the Department of Defense never even requested, and those are far from the only examples. While our State Department and Intelligence Community wither, eroding our ability to prevent conflicts in the first place, Congress has chosen to shovel taxpayer dollars to defense contractors who have failed again and again to deliver on-time and on-budget.” (speier.house.gov)
  • Signed a letter stating: “Preserving the agreement in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 that required increased spending to be spread evenly between defense spending and non-defense discretionary accounts which have both been harmed by the ongoing sequester”

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

  • “We need to invest in ports, broadband and other infrastructure required to create an efficient economy. We need to support advanced scientific research and support research into new methods of manufacturing.” (speier.house.gov)
  • “BART’s project is a shining example of the type of infrastructure investment that the Core Capacity program was designed to support.”
  • Voted in favor of H.R.22 “Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act”

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

  • “I have heard from numerous residents in my District who were financially broadsided this tax season, some by tens of thousands of dollars, thanks to the Republican assault on local tax deductions. This was a coldly calculated, political move designed to devastate blue states — which benefit more from State and Local Tax (SALT) Deductions than red states — and line the pockets of big corporations and fat cat tax dodgers, also known as the President’s donor class.”

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

  • “PPP was created to help small biz survive the pandemic, not the Dirty 300 publicly traded companies that have taken advantage of these vital loans despite having vast resources. I’m calling on @USGAO to investigate this abuse. We MUST ensure the $ goes to companies that need it!” (twitter.com)
  • “Congress has passed a historic $2 trillion relief package to address the unprecedented disruptions the coronavirus outbreak has unleashed on our residents. Since small businesses are the backbone of our economy we wanted to make sure you received relief. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act includes more than $376 billion in relief for struggling small businesses and nonprofits.” (www.facebook.com)
  • “Sent a letter to Sec Mnuchin & Admin Carranza questioning discrepancies in dispersal of PPP funds. CA ranked LAST in a state-by-state comparison of $ received for eligible payroll costs. Small biz owners have a right to know how funds are doled out & why they aren’t getting help!” (twitter.com)

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

  • “No Child Left Behind must be reformed. It is a program that has been detrimental to our education system over the past seven years. The reliance on standardized testing has resulted in too many teachers simply teaching to the test. “
  • Rated 100% by National Education Association.

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

  • Signed a letter stating “We are writing on behalf of the 80,000 Americans employed by the U.S. wind industry, representing jobs in all fifty states, to ask that you promptly extend the current law Production Tax Credit (PTC) and the Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Wind now provides power to over 15 million American homes, as well as to many thousands of farms and businesses.” (loebsack.house.gov)
  • “We must stop subsidizing oil companies, a move that would save taxpayers $40 billion over five years – money we could then use to invest in our growing green energy economy.” (www.jackiespeier.org)

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

  • “California’s investment in carbon reduction, renewable energy, and energy efficiency has proven that we do not have to choose between economic growth and environmental protection. We can and must do both.”
  • “While we work to slow climate change, we must also invest in efforts to protect and preserve our air, water, lands, and native animals.” (www.jackiespeier.org)
  • Signed a letter stating “Thank you for your leadership in responding to the serious challenge of climate change. We applaud and support your Climate Action Plan, the joint announcement with China establishing ambitious carbon pollution reduction targets, and the national commitment to the Green Climate Fund. These actions are critical to protect Americans from the most dangerous effects of climate change.”

Guns: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?        Supports

  • “I fully support a new federal assault weapons ban, and in fact, as a state legislator, I carried the California assault weapons ban in the Assembly, pushing the bill through passage into law.” (www.jackiespeier.org)
  • “I share President Obama’s deep frustration with Congress’s refusal to take actions against gun violence. His executive orders are good first steps to save some of the American children, families, and loved ones who are losing their lives every single day. These actions will help the police enforce our existing background check laws, and shrink the enormous loopholes that let dangerous people purchase guns without background checks.”
  • “I’ve introduced legislation to ensure all gun purchases require a background check, closing the loopholes that allow purchases made over the internet, at a gun show, and person to person do not require a background check. I support legislation to close the so-called “Charleston loophole” that sets a default approval of a gun purchase three days after the background check starts. Finally, I support closing the loophole that allows known and suspected terrorists to legally purchase guns.” (www.jackiespeier.org)
  • “Our nation has suffered at least 74 school shootings since the Sandy Hook massacre. The factors allowing these rampages are no mystery: loopholes in the background check laws, straw purchases, restrictions on law enforcement, and gaps in our mental health system.”

Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)?    Does Not Support
  • “There are certainly ways we can continue to tweak and improve the law, but we cannot repeal this law and take away coverage and discrimination protection from these Americans. I will continue to look at ways to improve the law, including possibilities like the creation of a public option so that all Americans have access to medical care.” (www.jackiespeier.org)
  • “As Republicans continue their efforts to slash and burn the Affordable Care Act, Democrats offer a better deal to Americans living paycheck to paycheck: lowering the cost of prescription drugs, protecting our grandparents in nursing homes, easing the cost of services for children with disabilities, and providing life-saving programs that offer critical support to millions of women including the healthy birth of their children”

Health Care: Do you support requiring businesses to provide paid medical leave during public health crises, such as COVID-19?   Supports
  • “Big corps don’t need taxpayer support. This is a great example of never wasting a crisis. Maybe we can get paid sick leave as a worker’s right now!” (twitter.com)
  • “Last night’s debate included questions about abortion rights, sexual harassment, child care, and paid family and medical leave. THIS is what happens when we have four women moderators. Let’s have more of this.” (twitter.com)

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

  • “For the benefit of our country, we must put to rest the notion that this border wall boondoggle is anything but a Trump reality TV show rerun.”
  • “In a time when our military struggles to recruit and retain valuable men and women, what horrific message does this send to those who now serve or will consider serving? By stripping away billions of dollars approved for military members and their families, the President has effectively declared, “My wall is more important than your service.'”

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
  • Signed a letter stating: “We respectfully request that you continue Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and engage in a vigorous legal defense of DACA in light of the renewed threat of litigation.”
  • “The President’s Executive Action improves national security and safety as we focus resources on those undocumented immigrants who pose a legitimate threat to our communities, instead of families and children.”

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “Rather than using rhetoric and sending muddled messages to our allies, the U.S. should pursue a comprehensive strategy toward North Korea that consists of economic pressure, strong and steady diplomacy, and credible deterrence and defense.”
  • “Despite years of harsh sanctions, Iran’s nuclear program continued to progress. It is clear that the only way to halt Iran’s program is military action or diplomacy. I choose diplomacy. Like all serious negotiations, compromises were made on all sides, but the final product of these negotiations is the most extensive nuclear verification scheme ever devised.”
  • “President Trump’s decision to leave the Iran nuclear agreement despite the outcry from his own administration and our allies around the world is nothing more than a reckless bid to appear strong to his base by following through on his campaign claims that this was a “bad deal.’ His decision opens the door for Iran to reengage in developing a nuclear bomb.”
  • Rated 92% by Council for a Livable World.

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

  • “I will firmly and vociferously oppose yet another costly war. We have spent nearly $6 trillion on wars and military action in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Pakistan – all precipitated by unclear goals and fake evidence. We are not doing that again, not on my watch! #NoIranWar.” (twitter.com)
  • Signed a letter stating: “We refuse to abandon our Constitutional war power responsibilities and demand an actionable response. If Congress does not receive a meaningful response, we stand willing to use all tools at the disposal of the legislative branch to assert these Constitutional authorities, including the possibility of an expedited vote pursuant to the War Powers Resolution on the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria.”
  • 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.
  • “POTUS’ interest in pulling out of Afghanistan so precipitously now makes sense. He’s taking orders from Putin. Putin wants to have a lock on the Middle East. Needs US out of there.” (twitter.com)

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

  • Econ 101- tariffs imposed by our tax-and-spend @POTUS aren’t being paid for by China. American consumers are bearing the brunt by being TAXED more.” (twitter.com)
  • Signed a letter stating: “The Chinese market for medical technology represents a significant growth opportunity for U.S. manufacturers. The Chinese market is valued at over $25 billion and the country imports about 70 percent of its medical devices, with imports expected to continue to grow. U.S. companies are the leading suppliers of medical devices to China, with a 33 percent share of all medical device imports, or approximately $5 billion of the total China medical device market. With its growing economy and middle class, rapidly aging population, and increased demand for medical technology, China will continue to be an attractive market for U.S. manufacturers. With that in mind, we are concerned that inclusion of medical devices on any final Section 301 tariff list could lead to retaliation that would jeopardize these opportunities.”
  • Rated 100% by Public Citizen.
  • Signed a letter stating: “As such, we believe that it is critically important that the TPP provide for an enhanced framework for protecting workers’ rights to help ensure that the agreement benefits the middle class in this country and protect the rights of workers of our trading partners.”
