After Reading Brad Sherman’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 0% by Campaign for Working Families.
  • Rated 100% by Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
  • Signed a letter stating: “Many people are fearful about how your presidency will affect women and girls. You have promised to nominate Supreme Court Justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade. You have also nominated officials with unabashedly anti-woman records to serve in cabinet posts with power to affect women’s health and day-to-day lives. Because of their fears about what lies ahead, women are already taking action to protect themselves against possible negative outcomes, such as by rushing to their doctors to obtain long-acting birth control before your inauguration.”

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

  • Signed a letter stating: ” Given the lack of bipartisanship to date in your effort to provide massive tax cuts to the wealthy at the expense of the middle class while adding $1.5 trillion to the deficit, it will be your responsibility to deal with these consequences.”
  • 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?       Unknown Position

  • Rated 98% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “I have worked to preserve Social Security, strengthen pensions and improve Medicare since I first came to Congress in 1996. My steadfast opposition to efforts to privatize Social Security and a commitment to improve Medicare benefits have earned me a 100-percent rating from The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. My voting record is rated 100% by AARP.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “We look forward to continuing to work with you to further strengthen the Medicare Advantage program and ensure millions of seniors have access to comprehensive, affordable health coverage choices.”

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.
  • Signed a letter stating: “Since 2010 when the Supreme Court issued its 5-4 decision in Citizens United v. FEC, our elections have been exploited by wealthy individuals, corporations, and other special interests through Super PACs and 501(c)4 groups that may spend limitless sums of money influencing voters.” (teddeutch.house.gov)

Crime: Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct?     Unknown Position

  • Voted in favor of HR 7120 – George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020.

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Unknown Position

  • 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”
  • Signed a letter stating: “Our diplomats settle disputes so that they do not have to be settled with bombs and bullets. And our development initiatives help countries lift themselves up, because areas mired in poverty often become hotbeds for instability and violence. The men and women in our armed services bravely put their lives on the line to protect our country. We owe it to them to exhaust every possible option before we send them into harm’s way. If we slash our investment in diplomacy and development, we are telling our servicemembers — and the American people — that we will take our chances down the road, even if that comes at a much higher cost in blood and treasure. But, don’t just take our word for it. In 2013, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said, “If you don’t fund the State Department fully, then I need to buy more ammunition ultimately. So I think it’s a cost benefit ratio. The more that we put into the State Department’s diplomacy, hopefully the less we have to put into a military budget as we deal with the outcome of an apparent American withdrawal from the international scene.”

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

  • Voted in favor of HR 22 – Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.
  • “Los Angeles voters voted to increase the local sales tax to finance dozens of projects, most notably the Sepulveda Pass subway. The project can be built sooner with an infusion of federal dollars. If President Trump is truly committed to improving America’s infrastructure, I can think of no greater place to start than with the nation’s most congested roadway.”

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “The evidence shows that higher capital standards and related regulatory improvements are not harming U.S. banks. In fact, banks are making record profits, on average of $167 billion annually the last three years. And that was before Congressional Republicans slashed the corporate tax rate for U.S. G-SIBs, giving the largest banks a windfall of more than $15 billion this year, and billions more to come in the years to follow.[6] In fact, the industry made a record $60 billion in profits in just the second quarter of 2018.”

Economy: Do you support providing financial relief to businesses AND/OR corporations negatively impacted by the state of national emergency for COVID-19?      Supports
  • Voted in favor of HR 266 – Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act.

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

  • Endorsed by and received a 100% rating by the National Education Association.

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

  • Voted in favor of HR 9 – Climate Action Now Act.
  • Signed a letter stating: “As Members of the California congressional delegation, we write in strong opposition to the Department of the Interior’s National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Draft Proposed Program (DPP) for 2019-2024 and its inclusion of lease sales in the Pacific. We urge you to immediately withdraw the DPP for 2019-2024.”
  • Rated 100% by Environment America.

Energy and Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?     Supports
  • “I voted for the American Clean Energy and Security Act (H.R. 2454), sometimes called Cap and Trade. This historic legislation was an important effort to help America achieve energy independence and fight global warming. It would have created millions of jobs in the green energy sector, reduced our dangerous dependence on foreign oil, and helped curb greenhouse gas emissions. The world economy is rapidly moving towards greater reliance on green technology, and we must act now in order to continue to be the world’s leader in the transition to a green economy.”
  • Rated 100% by Environment America.
  • Rated 24% by National Association of Manufacturers.

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

  • “While this case was a setback for gun control efforts, I am pleased that the Court held that the Second Amendment is not “a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” By saying this, the Court has rightfully acknowledged that states and localities, as well as the federal government, can continue to pass and enforce sensible gun control legislation.”
  • Rated 100% by Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
  • Rated 0% by National Rifle Association

Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)?     Does Not Support
  • Signed a letter stating: “While all of that is troubling, we write today to express deep concern about the Republican plan to repeal the ACA. You and your Republican colleagues in Congress have made clear that repealing the ACA, causing as many as 30 million people to lose health insurance, is a top priority for the 115th Congress. Repeal is such a high priority that you and Republicans in Congress are willing to charge forward without even agreeing on a replacement plan, a blatant abdication of your responsibilities as representatives of the American people. People are going to get hurt in very real ways, Mr. President-elect. The American people deserve to know how Republicans plan to avoid the devastating consequences of ACA repeal.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “You have also stated in the past that, ‘The best thing politically is to let Obamacare explode’ and recently said that ‘Obamacare is dead.’ We strongly disagree.”

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

  • Voted in favor of HR 6201 – Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

Immigration: Do you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?     Unknown Position

  • Rated 0% by Federation for American Immigration Reform.

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

  • Rated 0% by Federation for American Immigration Reform.
  • “I am committed to working with House Republicans and my Democratic colleagues to pass legislation that will safeguard our young DREAMers.”
  • 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. Along with continuing to accept requests for DACA, we ask that you direct your administration to: (a) oppose any efforts to challenge DACA in the ongoing Texas v. United States litigation;’ (b) ask the court to dismiss the complaint in United States v. Texas; and (c) refuse any settlement that would end DACA.”

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 only reason for not signing the Additional Protocol is if a country wants to secretly develop nuclear weapons,” said Congressman Sherman. “If you can’t trust Saudi Arabia with a bone saw, you shouldn’t trust them with a nuclear weapon, and this amendment would help ensure Saudi Arabia never gets one.”
  • “I found myself on the dovish edge of the foreign policy community. While I supported tougher sanctions, I believe that we should settle for a verifiable limit, a freeze and monitoring, a system where there is no cheating and where we can be sure that they are not selling their nuclear weapons to other even more dangerous parties.”
  • “No matter what the status of the nuclear Agreement, Congress must adopt sanctions designed to force Iran to change its “non-nuclear” behavior–to stop supporting Assad and terrorist groups, and to free the American hostages. Next month I will introduce legislation to impose sanctions on Iran designed to change its non-nuclear behavior.”

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

  • 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.

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

  • Voted in favor of HR 5430 – United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act.
  • “I believe that Washington’s trade policy during the last decade took the United States’ industrial base and economy in a very wrong direction. For too long, we have seen the U.S. export jobs rather than products. We can no longer afford to continue on this same path and erode our industrial base and American working families. We must abandon the failed, so-called “free trade” policies of the past and take a new direction. We need a trade policy that creates and keeps good paying jobs here for American working families. We need balanced trade.”
  • “Between February and August of this year, the U.S.-China trade deficit has risen dramatically. In fact, the trade deficit has increased every month that Trump has been in office,” said Rep. Sherman. “The President acting alone could eliminate this deficit by imposing tariffs on Chinese goods now. But instead, he has chosen to be a pretend president.”
