After Reading Jared Huffman’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

  • Do you generally support Pro-Choice or Pro-Life legislation? “Pro-Choice”

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”

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

  • Endorsed by National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare.
  • 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.”
  • “Many Californians and middle-class families will see higher tax bills while President Donald Trump and Senator Bob Corker will enrich themselves through tax loopholes and windfalls. Seniors in particular are going to end up paying for this scheme, which explodes the deficit and will lead to billions in cuts from Medicare and other safety net programs.”
  • Rated 100% by the Alliance for Retired Americans.

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”

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
  • “Systemic racism and injustices against Black people and communities of color have been tolerated in this country for far too long. This is our moment of reckoning: a chance for Americans to finally confront our original sin of racism and change the systems and policies that have perpetuated it,”said Representative Huffman. “And we cannot fall short with half measures or empty promises proposed by Trump and Senate Republicans. It has been one of the greatest honors of my career to join with Chairwoman Karen Bass, the Congressional Black Caucus, and the full weight of the Democratic Caucus to fight for and pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. This is an important step — one of many that are needed — to take real action that shows that Black lives matter.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 7120 – George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020.

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

  • “Yet again, the Republican-controlled House has voted to pass a deeply-flawed defense authorization bill,” said Rep. Huffman. “This year’s expansion of the defense budget flies in the face of common-sense cost savings, adding billions of unneeded spending to President Trump’s already over-inflated budget request. Undoubtedly, this far-reaching authorization of Pentagon spending will be used as an excuse to cut key funding from programs that support our seniors, youth, and families here at home. We cannot keep ignoring basic math when it comes to the national budget. If Congress is serious about fiscal responsibility, let’s begin with the bloated defense budget, which once again spends billions of dollars of hard-earned taxpayer money on unwanted and unnecessary defense initiatives.”
  • “I will continue to work toward a long-term solution for the Dreamers, on common sense reforms for all those demanding action on gun violence, and for more responsible priorities for the millions of Americans who will be asked to pay the bill for the exorbitant defense spending which, along with the reckless GOP tax scam, is causing our national debt to spiral out of control.”

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”
  • “No surprise that GM, like so many other big corporations who didn’t need a huge new tax windfall in the first place, is choosing to eliminate jobs rather than use their tax windfall to reinvest in people and infrastructure here in America.” (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
  • “The CARES Act is an important step to get small businesses, workers, & families the resources you need throughout this unprecedented crisis. It’s not perfect by any means — but it’s an important down payment that will make a real difference for millions across the US.” (twitter.com)
  • “Relief in the #CARESAct was intended for families & #smallbiz, not as a bailout for Trump-favored industries. I introduced the #ReWINDAct w/ @SenJeffMerkley, @RepBarragan, @RepJayapal, & @Ilhan to put #PeopleOverPolluters and prevent this #BigOilBailout.” (twitter.com)
  • “Small businesses in #CA02 and across the US are hurting. Yesterday, I cast my vote — using the House’s new proxy system — on this bipartisan bill to expand flexibility in PPP loans so small businesses can receive the help they need.” (twitter.com)
  • Signed a letter stating: “We urge you to oppose such corporate tax breaks, which have little to do with pandemic relief and much to do with temporarily boosting the stock market and benefiting the wealthiest among us. Whether in the form of tax breaks, loans, or other federal support, any assistance to corporations must at the very least come with adequate guardrails to ensure workers benefit instead of executives and shareholders. However, our focus must be on advancing more efficient relief measures that put assistance directly into the hands of the families that need it most.”

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

  • “Federal law should establish basic minimum standards, as it has always done in areas such as civil rights, and then leave most of public education policy to the states. Those minimum standards should include, however, a significant commitment to special education and a school system that is free of encroachment from religious extremism or partisan politics. Federal funds should not flow to public school systems that deny science, impose particular forms of religion on students, fail to support disadvantaged communities equal educational opportunities, or require unbalanced curriculum that is politically tainted.”
  • “The Every Student Succeeds Act puts states and local school districts back in the driver seat, while ensuring that students with disabilities and underperforming children are still prioritized,” Huffman said. “As a country, we need to prepare our students to compete in the global economy. This requires proper funding and resources, a safe learning environment, and a committed local community. This bipartisan legislation, which included environmental learning programs and funding for high-speed broadband that I specifically fought for, will help keep the promise of universal access to quality public education and will provide local schools with the flexibility and resources to close the academic achievement gap.”

Energy and Environment: Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, geo-thermal)?     Supports
  • “I support a much more active federal role in limiting fossil fuel extraction and accelerating the essential transformation to a clean energy economy.”
  • “Increasing investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy sources is a critical tool in the fight against climate change.” (huffman.house.gov)
  • Rated 100% by League of Conservation Voters.

Energy and Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?    Supports
  • Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions? “Yes”
  • “Rolling back vehicle emissions standards, which have been successful, cost-effective, and are widely popular, is a terrible idea. It also won’t change the way the industry designs and builds vehicles because California and 11 other “clean car states” have been setting their own high standards under a federal waiver.” (www.facebook.com)

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

  • Do you generally support gun-control legislation? “Yes”
  • “Federal courts have consistently ruled that the 2nd amendment does not include a right to have assault weapons and high capacity magazines. We can ban these things without any legal or constitutional problems. It’s merely a question of political will.” (www.facebook.com)
  • “Why even talk about repealing the 2nd Amendment? Better to urge people to actually read it (“A well regulated militia…”), apply common sense, and enact reforms/regulations that courts have consistently said are perfectly constitutional — universal background checks, bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, etc. Nothing prevents us from putting sensible sideboards on the right to bear arms, other than the political opposition of the gun lobby.” (www.facebook.com)

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

  • Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)? “No”

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

  • “@HouseDemocrats are doing what it takes to pass a bill that puts #FamiliesFirst. That means free #Coronavirus testing, improved food security for families, and the certainty of paid leave — not a bailout for Big Oil or Trump orgs.” (twitter.com)
  • Voted in favor of HR 6201 – Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
  • “The Senate just passed the @HouseDemocrats’ #FamiliesFirst #Coronavirus Response Act to provide free testing for all, expanded unemployment benefits & paid leave, and food assistance. There can’t be any more delays—it must be signed into law now.” (twitter.com)

Immigration:  Do you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?    Does Not Support
  • “President Trump’s emergency declaration is an unlawful grab for power, and a desperate attempt to get billions for his ineffective border wall contrary to the explicit direction of Congress.”
  • “In years past, I have voted against defense authorization bills because they have strained our over-tapped national budget to inflate the Pentagon’s budget,” said Rep. Huffman. “While I still have serious concerns that we’re spending too much with this year’s NDAA bill, I recognize that this bill is a rare opportunity to lock in long-overdue policy reforms. This NDAA is different: the bill the House considered today advances many of my constituents’ highest priorities, like helping to prevent an unconstitutional war with Iran, ending American support for the Saudi war in Yemen, blocking using Department of Defense funds on a border wall, stopping a new nuclear arms race, all while funding a strong and smart national defense strategy. For these reasons, I ultimately decided to vote for this year’s defense authorization bill.” (huffman.house.gov)
  • “This was one of the last, best opportunities to honor America’s promise to hundreds of thousands of Dreamers whose lives have been put in limbo by President Trump. Yet the omnibus bill provides no such protection, while wasting $1.6 billion in laying the foundation for Trump’s crazy border wall scheme.”

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
  • “New legislation introduced by Rep. Huffman (D-San Rafael) would, if signed into law, end federal immigration proceedings against Hugo Mejia, an upstanding resident of Marin who has been held for over four months by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and kept from his family.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “In relevant Appropriations legislation, the Committee should include language making clear that family separation is not an appropriate or endorsed policy, and restrict the use of funds for policies that separate families who enter the United States; and If any agency requests authority to reprogram existing funding to increase capacity for children separated from their parents, including the construction of “tent cities” on military bases, the Committee must reject these requests.”
  • “This is a humanitarian crisis created by Trump, enabled by an enfeebled Republican Congress, and now they are trying to use these children and families as bargaining chips. Today’s vote proves that this radical anti-immigrant agenda will not succeed. House Republicans should snap out of their partisan stupor, and work with Democrats on real fixes to our nation’s broken immigration system. We should start by ending Trump’s family separation crisis and taking action to finally protect the DREAMers.”

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)?     Does Not Support
  • “Today’s decision by President Trump to give up America’s moral and diplomatic high ground in Iran is particularly dangerous because he has now announced that America’s agreements are not binding, which makes the North Korean situation even more difficult. President Trump and his advisors are imitating President George W. Bush’s reckless go-it alone approach that sparked an unnecessary, destabilizing, and ongoing war in the Middle East. We should not carelessly abandon our agreements, turn our backs on our allies, and neglect our responsibilities to promote security and protect human rights.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “As the previous administrations dating back to that of Richard Nixon determined, any military option could precipitate an unacceptable counter-reaction from Pyongyang, which today could immediately threaten the lives of as many as a third of the South Korean population, put nearly 30,000 U.S. service members and over 100,000 other U.S. citizens residing in South Korea in grave danger, and also threaten our other regional allies such as Japan. Moreover, the Pentagon reported this year that only through a costly, bloody ground invasion would the United States be able to secure all of North Korea’s nuclear weapons.”

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

  • 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.”
  • “Congressman Huffman’s leading concerns with this year’s NDAA include: Exploding defense spending far beyond statutory budget caps. Authorizes nearly $30 billion above even President Trump’s massive budget request; Further commiting the U.S. to ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, including Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “We support your restraint to date in resisting the calls for a “quick” and “easy” military intervention, and for your commitment not to send combat troops back to Iraq.”

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

  • “Today’s vote clearly demonstrates the dangers lurking beneath the text of trade agreements like NAFTA and TPP.”
  • “The TPP, like previous bad trade deals, allows corporations to challenge local, state and even national laws they don’t like. Last month, the World Trade Organization (WTO) sided with foreign beef producers in a complaint challenging a U.S. law that requires beef and pork to include country-of-origin labeling. The WTO held that this law violates trade rules, and thus our trading “partners” may soon impose massive sanctions on American wine and other products unless the labeling law is repealed.”
