After Reading Raul Ruiz’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.
  • Signed a letter stating: “We, the undersigned members of Congress, urge you to reject a policy agenda that would harm women, starting with your efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and defund Planned Parenthood. 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.”
  • Rated 0% by Campaign for Working Families.

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?     Supports
  • “Today I stood with seniors and middle-class families across Riverside County and voted against the irresponsible Ryan Budget proposal. Unconscionably, this budget would raise taxes on millions of middle-class families, stifle job creation, and end the Medicare guarantee while protecting tax loopholes for the wealthy and corporations who ship jobs overseas.”
  • Rated 17% by National Taxpayers Union.
  • “The Republican tax bill means more pain, more suffering, and shorter life-spans for these individuals who go without care because they can no longer afford it. All of this to give a $1.5 billion tax cut to the wealthiest one percent. That’s just not right.”

Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?      Supports
  • “I have spent my time in Congress standing up for seniors by fighting to protect and expand Medicare and Social Security. It’s a promise I made when I first ran and it’s a promise I have kept. Seniors have paid for, earned, and been promised these benefits after a lifetime of hard work and I will always stand up for them by working to expand and protect these commitments while opposing any cuts or changes to the retirement age.”
  • Rated 100% by Alliance for Retired Americans.

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

  • Endorsed by End Citizens United.

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?     Unknown Position

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

  • “One of the greatest crises facing this district and Southern California is the dying Salton Sea. It poses a significant threat to the families in our region and I have been working with local, regional, and federal stakeholders since my first day in Congress to secure funding and address this issue head-on.” (drraulruiz.com)
  • “Maintaining our nation’s infrastructure spurs economic activity, creates jobs here at home, and helps American businesses stay competitive in the global marketplace. However, this bill is not a permanent fix to our nation’s infrastructure needs. I will continue working with my colleagues toward a pragmatic, long term solution to ensure appropriate investment in essential infrastructure across the country.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “The critical need for Federal investment in our water infrastructure is without question.”

Economy: Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?      Does Not Support
  • “Today I stood with seniors and middle-class families across Riverside County and voted against the irresponsible Ryan Budget proposal. Unconscionably, this budget would raise taxes on millions of middle-class families, stifle job creation, and end the Medicare guarantee while protecting tax loopholes for the wealthy and corporations who ship jobs overseas.”
  • “The Bring Jobs Home Act will create critical tax incentives for businesses to bring jobs back to the United States and close tax loopholes for corporations who ship jobs overseas.”

  • Rated 100% by Environment America.

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

  • “Proud to earn a 100% on the League of Conservation Voters for my work to protect our public health and environment! National security experts agree, climate change is a serious threat to our national security and economic security. We need take bold action now to plan for, mitigate, and prevent climate change to protect our environment and natural resources for future generations.” (www.facebook.com)
  • Rated 100% by Environment America.
  • Signed a letter stating: “The funds, which when channeled through the two organizations cannot be traced to individual donors, helped build a network of think tanks and activist groups. These worked to defeat climate bills in Congress and are mobilizing against Environmental Protection Agency rules to reduce carbon pollution from power plants which are due to be finalized this summer. In many cases, the anonymous cash makes up the vast majority of funding received by beneficiaries — more than comes openly from the fossil fuel industry.”

  • 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

  • “Our immigration system is broken, however, and I am working with Democrats and Republicans toward a comprehensive immigration system that is rooted in common sense. For far too long, Congress has failed to act on a comprehensive plan for reform. I believe that any comprehensive immigration reform plan must be bipartisan, secure our borders, uphold the immigration laws we already have, protect our workers and businesses, and include an earned pathway to citizenship for those who work hard and play by the rules. It is time to put aside the political games and work together in a bipartisan effort to address this critical challenge that will secure our borders, improve our economy, provide our businesses a stable workforce, and reduce the deficit by $800 billion.”
  • Rated 0% by Federation for American Immigration Reform.     Does Not Support

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

  • “Mr. Speaker, the decision to end DACA goes against the very core of our American values of the American Dream. The future of 800,000 young people who study, serve in our military, and contribute to our economy, and who serve and protect America is at risk.”
  • “I strongly support passing the DREAM Act, which will provide our students who are in the United States through no fault of their own the opportunity to get a high-quality education, help grow our economy, serve this country in our military, and contribute to the future of the only nation they have ever called home.”
  • “The executive order to stop deporting young people who were brought here through no fault of their own is very important to me. Congress should stop playing politics and recognize that everyone has an interest in immigration reform.”

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
  • “I have come to a conclusion that approving this agreement is the most effective realistic diplomatic option to prevent Iran form obtaining a nuclear weapon, and therefore, in the best interest of our nation and allies. From the start, I committed myself to a rigorous, evidence-based approach without consideration of partisanship or politics. I spent many hours soliciting opinions from supporters and opponents. I will vote for the Iran agreement, but I make this decision with great humility and appreciation of the risks. I am confident that I reached this conclusion because I believe that the hard evidence indicates it is in America’s best interest. At the same time, I appreciate and respect the many individuals who looked within, considered the alternatives, and reached the opposite conclusion.”

As you know, this vital sector employs nearly four percent of our total private sector workforce and is a key engine that powers our economy. However, if tariffs were to be implemented, new vehicle prices will likely increase, threatening hundreds of thousands of jobs.”
