After Reading Anna Eshoo’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 the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
  • Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation? “Pro-Choice.”
  • Rated 0% by the National Right to Life Committee.

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

  • In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket? “Yes.”
  • “The Republican tax bill that passed the House today is an assault on the middle class and it will do lasting damage to our country. The bill is a dishonest “bait and switch’ for the 36 million middle class families who will see their taxes increase under this plan to pay for tax cuts for the wealthiest 1% of Americans and multinational companies. It is paid for by eliminating the few remaining benefits in the tax code for the middle-class and adding $1.7 trillion to the national debt, leaving it to our children and grandchildren to pay for.”

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

  • Rated 100% by the Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “Invest in Community Health Centers, safety net hospitals, and Medicare and Medicaid.” (annaeshoo4congress.com)

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

  • Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions? “Yes.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “Most Americans agree that the rise of big money in politics undermines the basic guiding principle of our democracy–that every citizen enjoys equality under the law and an equal voice in our elections. While we believe that amending the Constitution should be reserved only for times when no other recourse will do, we have seen the impact of these decisions, and we are convinced that an amendment is ripe for consideration.”

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
  • “The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many others demonstrate the lack of accountability and justice when it comes to the killing of Black men and women in our country,” said Rep. Eshoo. “This package of bills bans chokeholds and no-knock warrants, prohibits racial profiling, demilitarizes police departments, reforms qualified immunity, and makes incidents of police misconduct fully transparent to the public.”
  • “The Justice in Policing Act of 2020: […] Reforms qualified immunity so that individuals are not barred from recovering damages when police violate their constitutional rights.”

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Does Not Support
  • Rated 0% by Center for Security Policy.
  • Endorsed by Peace Action.
  • Signed a letter stating: “In any upcoming negotiations, however, Democrats will press for the inclusion of the following bipartisan items, among others: 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
  • Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth? “Yes.”

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

  • Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth? “No.”
  • “”This bill is the largest corporate tax cut in our nation’s history but it compromises the future well-being of our country and its people. Instead of reforming the tax code to expand our economy, the bill expands our debt. Instead of motivating more Americans to pursue higher education, more to own their own homes, more to move up the economic ladder, the bill sacrifices our values and vision for a plan that has never worked in the past.”

Economy: Do you support providing financial relief to businesses AND/OR corporations negatively impacted by the state of national emergency for COVID-19?   Supports
  • “This historic $2 trillion legislation, the largest relief package in American history, will address the many challenges we face,” Eshoo said. “For the millions of Americans filing for unemployment benefits, for the healthcare workers making daily sacrifices on the front lines, and for the small businesses that are shuttered, I’m proud that the CARES Act puts families and workers first. Through a significant expansion of unemployment insurance, expanded small business loans, and a $100 billion ‘Marshall Plan’ for our health care system, this legislation will save lives, stabilize families and workers across the country, and bring confidence to the American people.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “As you know, as a key part of the CARES Act, Congress set up an unprecedented forgivable loan program, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), to aid small businesses and nonprofits in retaining their workforce and ensure they can weather this crisis.”

Education: Do you support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?     Does Not Support

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

  • Do you generally support gun control legislation? “Yes.”
  • “Laws can help to change this and Congress must act swiftly. No excuses. The words of national leaders that set a tone in our country can either raise people up or encourage acts of hatred.”
  • “Anna supports common sense gun control legislation that: Establishes universal background checks for all gun sales, including online and at gun shows, and extends the time period during which a background check can be completed before being automatically approved from 3 days to 10; Reinstates the Assault Weapons Ban; and Encourages states to pass “red flag” laws to temporarily remove firearms from a person who may present a danger to themselves or others.” (annaeshoo4congress.com)

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
  • The President’s decision to walk away from the Iran Nuclear Agreement (JCPOA) represents an abdication of U.S. leadership. This move plunges America’s relations with our European allies into uncertainty and sends a message to the world that the word of the United States can no longer be trusted.”
  • Rated 0% by Center for Security Policy.
  • Signed a letter stating: “In such a volatile region, an inconsistent or unpredictable policy runs the risk of unimaginable conflict. That is why we strongly urge you to adhere to the diplomatic approach recently articulated by Secretary Tillerson, who stated that your Administration’s sole goal is to “seek a denuclearized Korean Peninsula,” and that you “do not seek regime change” and “do not seek a collapse of the regime,” both of which could lead down a path that could risk nuclear war. We support Secretary Tillerson’s statement that the preferred method for resolution is “direct talks with North Korea,” including persuading them to relinquish their nuclear weapons by assuring them that they “do not need these weapons to secure the existence of [their] regime.”
  • “The destabilizing and confrontational actions of the Iranian regime, in particular its nuclear program, pose a significant threat to the United States, Israel, the countries in the region and beyond. Throughout my 22 years in Congress, I have supported concrete and unambiguous diplomatic actions to deter the regime from pursuing such a program, including the crippling and effective sanctions that helped to bring Iran to the negotiating table.” (eshoo.house.gov)

  • Rated 0% by Center for Security Policy.
  • “I oppose additional military involvement, and I support diplomatic and economic steps that will reduce tensions in the Middle East.”

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

  • 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.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “Thank you for your time and attention to this important matter. We are encouraged that you are conducting a public comment process to understand the implications of any tariffs and make adjustments to the preliminary list before any tariffs are imposed. We look forward to working with you to address our concerns.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “Twentieth Century “Fast Track” is simply not appropriate for 21st Century agreements and must be replaced. The United States cannot afford another trade agreement that replicates the mistakes of the past. We can and must do better.
