After Reading Ted Lieu’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 Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
  • “I am 100% pro-choice and honored to be endorsed by Planned Parenthood.”
  • 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

  • “Would I support simply increasing taxes? NO. Would I support increasing taxes in certain areas but lowering them in others? Maybe. It would depend on the specifics.”
  • “In California–the eighth largest economy in the world–we put our fiscal house in order by investing in core priorities instead of giving tax breaks to the ultra-wealthy. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to set national budget policy that raises the wages of the middle class; protects Medicare and Social Security, and invests in infrastructure, education, and innovation.”
  • Rated 21% by National Taxpayers Union.
  • “Today, the House and Senate GOP cast their votes in favor of hurting middle class American families so that folks with estates worth $22 million can get a massive tax exemption.”

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “The irresponsible tax cuts you are pursuing will explode the federal deficit, violating the principle, enshrined in the 2010 Statutory PAYGO law, that tax cuts should be paid for. Under that law, your unpaid-for tax cuts, if enacted, will trigger automatic, across-the board cuts to Medicare, the farm safety net, and other programs. 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.”
  • “While poverty for seniors in this country is still an issue, Social Security has served as a reliable safety net for all seniors. Over 112,338 older Americans and people with disabilities in California’s 33rd Congressional District and 22 million nationwide receive Social Security. For 90% of retirees and 70% of disability recipients it is their primary source of income. Social Security, if managed effectively, can serve every generation that has paid into it from my parent’s generation to that of my children. Unfortunately, our Republican colleagues are trying to make it sound like our Social Security Trust fund is going bankrupt, despite having a $2.8 trillion dollar surplus, and are trying to slip in cuts and privatize the program. For my parents, my children and all Americans, I have pledged to do all I can to oppose Republican cuts to the benefits we have all paid for and preserve this program for generations to come.”

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

  • “H.R. 1 is bold, transformative legislation to put the power back in the hands of the people and restore the people’s faith that government works for the public interest, not the special interests. It is an historic package of democracy and anti-corruption reforms that will ensure that the American people come first in our democracy.”
  • Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions? “Yes”
  • “I support a Clean Money system. I also believe the US Congress should pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. That’s why I introduced legislation to place a measure on the statewide ballot to allow California voters to tell Congress that real campaign finance reform must happen, including disallowing corporations to be treated as human beings.”

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
  • Voted in favor of HR 7120 – George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020.
  • “. @HouseDemocrats are voting today on the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act. Join us in sending a message to Trump and Senate Republicans that we need comprehensive police reform NOW.” (twitter.com)

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

  • Rated 11% by Center for Security Policy.
  • Signed a letter stating: “Preserving the agreement in the Bipartisan Agreement Act of 2013 that required increased spending to be spread evenly between 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

  • “Would I support federal stimulus for a bridge to nowhere? NO. Would I support federal stimulus to help reduce congestion on the 405? YES. Would I support a tax credit for making socks? NO. Would I support a tax credit for Film & TV production? YES.”
  • “I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to set national budget policy that raises the wages of the middle class; protects Medicare and Social Security, and invests in infrastructure, education, and innovation.”

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

  • “We have just witnessed generational theft to benefit the super-rich and corporations. The GOP pushed through a bill that is deeply unpopular and will raise taxes on millions of middle class families.”

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 bill is another important step in our fight against COVID-19. Democrats pushed for the stronger provisions in this bill that will help American businesses and health care providers. It has been made clear that we had to make improvements to the PPP, and in this bill, Democrats ensured $60 billion would go to small businesses that haven’t had access to the program so far. Democrats also secured billions more for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program, which provides small businesses with alternative funds that can help cover long-term expenses like rent. On top of that, Democrats ensured hospitals and healthcare providers would get an additional $75 billion so they can have the resources they need to continue to save lives. Overall, Democrats are committed to protecting both our heroes of the moment, healthcare workers, and the backbone of our economy, local businesses.”


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

  • “Do I support reforms that put an even more incessant and suffocating obsession on testing? NO. Do I support reforms that will reduce class sizes? YES.”
  • 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
  • “I believe the federal government should set greenhouse gas reduction goals. This is working in California not just for carbon emissions, but also for renewables and efficiency. I was proud to support California?s landmark renewable portfolio standard, as well as its most recent increase to 33% by 2020. As a Member of Congress, I will continue to champion policies that discourage fossil fuel use and encourage renewables and efficiency. I would also reintroduce the Waxman-Markey bill to tackle climate change.”
  • “Ted Lieu’s environmental priorities: Increase and expand renewable energy requirements for utilities as well as increased and expanded incentives for increased development in renewable energy.”
  • Rated 100% by Environment America.

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”
  • “I believe the federal government should set greenhouse gas reduction goals. This is working in California not just for carbon emissions, but also for renewables and efficiency. I was proud to support California?s landmark renewable portfolio standard, as well as its most recent increase to 33% by 2020. As a Member of Congress, I will continue to champion policies that discourage fossil fuel use and encourage renewables and efficiency. I would also reintroduce the Waxman-Markey bill to tackle climate change.”
  • Rated 100% by Environment America.

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

  • “We know that many of the mass shootings that occurred did occur with AR-15 style weapons. In addition we know that background checks, raising the age limit, and banning bump stocks are good things to do, not clear why we need yet another commission.”
  • Rated 100% by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
  • Rated 0% by the National Rifle Association

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

  • Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act? “No”
  • “As a legislator, I have voted regularly to support the ACA, including the creation of the health exchange, setting a minimum level of benefits and expanding MediCal. Additionally, with the increase in health insurance marketing to communities whose first language is not English, I authored and passed a law to ensure that when insurers advertise in a language other than English, the documents must also be in that language. However, the ACA is not perfect and I would support bills to make it better.”

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?    Does Not Support
  • Rated 0% by Federation for American Immigration Reform
  • “On the complex issue of immigration, Trump believes that a huge, astronomically expensive wall on the US-Mexico border can solve problems that don’t exist: that millions of ‘illegals’ voted in this past election and that millions more are streaming across the border.”
  • Rated 100% by NumbersUSA.

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.
  • Do you support requiring illegal immigrants to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship? “No”
  • “Looking for a better life and opportunity, my parents immigrated to the United States when I was three. With the support of hard-working parents and a country that provided limitless opportunity, I would attend college and then law school. I am in public service because I want to ensure that the opportunities provided to me and my family are open and available to everyone. Comprehensive immigration reform must happen.”

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
  • “As I’ve said before, there are no good military options in North Korea. Launching a nuclear first strike against North Korea could endanger the lives of millions of our allies and American military personnel. I served on active duty in the Air Force and I know that diplomacy is our best bet to prevent a bloody and drawn-out conflict on the Korean peninsula. Trump’s provocations are moving us closer to a dangerous war that would have dire consequences.”

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

  • “While Sen. Lieu supports diplomacy, it must never be based on “trust.” We cannot trust the current Iranian regime, which is controlled by an oppressive, theocratic, authoritarian government that continues to fund terrorists. All diplomacy with Iran on the nuclear issue must be based on verifiable, achievable objectives.”
  • “I strongly agree with the President’s decision to withdraw US troops from Syria. Congress never authorized the US to go to war in Syria. While going after terrorists is authorized, both the Obama and Trump Administrations went far beyond the congressionally authorized use of force against terrorists.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “Working with our allies and partners, we urge you to maintain and increase pressure on Iran and Russia to constrain their destabilizing activities. 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.”

Trade: Do you generally support removing barriers to international trade (for example: tariffs, quotas, etc.)?      Unknown Position
  • Signed a letter stating: “The Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (“MTB”) temporarily eliminates antiquated border taxes on imported products that are not manufactured or available in the United States. The MTB plays an important role in the operations of domestic manufacturers and other industries as it corrects, on a temporary basis, historical distortions in the U.S. tariff code by eliminating border tariffs on imported products for which there is no or insufficient domestic production and availability. Such distortions undermine the competitiveness of manufacturers in the United States by imposing unnecessary costs and, in some cases, imposing a higher cost on manufacturers’ inputs than the competing foreign imported finished product.”
