After Reading Mark Takano’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.
  • “The government does not have a place in the private medical decisions of any woman. I will continue to defend a women’s right to choose and I will work to protect Roe v. Wade.”

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?     Supports
  • “Today, the House of Representatives missed a huge opportunity to cut taxes on middle-class Americans, grow the economy, and invest in our country. Instead, Republicans used a rushed and partisan process to pass an immoral piece of legislation that cuts taxes for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, while adding more than a trillion dollars to the deficit.”

Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?      Unknown Position
  • “We need to strengthen Social Security for future retirees, not use it to pay down our debt.”
  • Rated 100% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “We also must look for ways to strengthen and improve access to affordable long-term care for seniors.”

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

  • “For far too long, powerful special interests and big money in politics have silenced the voices of the American people. H.R. 1 will help shift the balance of power from a wealthy, powerful few back to the American people. Today I cast an enthusiastic vote, a “yes” vote For the People.”
  • “In 2012, candidates and outside groups spent $6 billion on the Presidential election alone. This is unacceptable and I believe this Congress must enact comprehensive campaign finance reform. Furthermore, we must overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, and, if necessary, I will support a Constitutional Amendment to do so.”

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.
  • “The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act bans chokeholds and no-knock warrants, which led to the deaths of George Floyd, Eric Garner, and Breonna Taylor; it establishes guidelines that will keep our communities safe by creating a national database to track police misconduct and demilitarizing our police; and this legislation will bring justice to victims of police abuse by reforming the qualified immunity doctrine, which shields law enforcement from facing accountability when they violate people’s rights or engage in serious misconduct.”

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?      Unknown Position

  • Rated 0% by the Center for Security Policy.
  • Rated 77% by the Council for a Livable World.
  • Signed a letter stating: “·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
  • “One of my top priorities in Congress is to help bring jobs back to the Inland Empire and spur economic investment in our region. Despite recent improvements in the nation’s economic outlook, the unemployment rate in Riverside County has remained higher than the national average, and any recovery will be gradual. To address persistent unemployment, I will support bold investment in transportation and infrastructure, strengthening our small businesses, research and development into new technology, and workforce training programs to prepare workers to compete in the 21st century. “
  • “I am also a member of the Public-Private Partnerships (P3) Caucus. This caucus helps to raise awareness about infrastructure issues across the country and examines the role public-private partnerships as solutions to some of our biggest infrastructure funding needs.”

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

  • “Today, the House of Representatives missed a huge opportunity to cut taxes on middle-class Americans, grow the economy, and invest in our country. Instead, Republicans used a rushed and partisan process to pass an immoral piece of legislation that cuts taxes for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, while adding more than a trillion dollars to the deficit.”
  • “Californians already give more to the federal government than they receive, this bill means they’ll pay even more. Corporations are already earning record profits while not paying their fair share in taxes, this bill means they’ll pay even less. Students, teachers, workers, and middle-class families are already struggling to achieve financial security, this bill makes that problem far worse.”

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?    Does Not Support

  • “Mark supports reforming or ending the Federal mandates of “No Child Left Behind” and a renewed commitment to building an educational system that will prepare Americans to compete in the emerging economy.”
  • “I have seen firsthand the challenges our K-12 education system faces and am committed to addressing those challenges in Congress. I support repealing and replacing the flawed “No Child Left Behind” law that prescribes “one-size-fits-all” requirements on schools, teachers, and students. Instead, I will advocate for a system that prepares Americans to compete in the global economy through an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) education, partnerships with community colleges and industry, and engaging teaching methods.”
  • Rated 100% 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
  • “Drilling alone will not be enough to meet the energy needs of the 21st century and the development of clean and renewable sources of energy will have to be a large part of any real solution. Instead of spending billions of dollars on subsidies to some of the world’s richest oil companies, I believe we need to invest those billions into the clean sources of energy like wind and solar that will power the future. “
  • “Mark supports job-training and vocational education in our local schools to teach students how to build solar panels, weatherize homes, and perform the jobs of the future. Mark supports grants to community colleges to form partnerships with local businesses, experts, non- profits, and community leaders to allow California to once again become the world leader in renewable energy and jobs of the future.”

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “The American public needs and deserves clean air and protection from hazardous air pollution. This is a matter of critical human health and safety. We ask you to reverse your decision to rescind the “once in, always in” policy, in order to safeguard future generations from harmful air pollutants.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “Indeed, according to the brief, the Supreme Court has already affirmed that the EPA has clear authority to combat carbon pollution and regulate greenhouse gasses under Massachusetts v. EPA and American Electric Power v. Connecticut.”

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

  • “I strongly support the executive actions on gun control announced today by President Obama. Every day in America we are reminded that no one is safe from gun violence. We cannot afford to do nothing as our children, friends, co-workers, and law enforcement officers are added to the long list of victims. The executive actions announced today will make us safer. Expanding background checks, bolstering enforcement of existing gun laws, and improving mental health services are all important steps to protecting our communities. These policies recognize the rights of law-abiding gun owners, while making it more difficult for those who would commit a violent crime to purchase a firearm.”
  • “We are also demanding a vote on a bipartisan proposal to require that commercial gun purchases include a background check, background checks for all. I have yet to hear one good explanation on why this should not be the law of the land. If a dangerous person cannot pass a background check at a licensed gun dealer, they should not be able to avoid a background check by going to a gun show or purchasing a firearm over the Internet. In States that have closed loopholes in their background check laws, 48 percent fewer on-duty police officers are shot to death–but my colleagues across the aisle still refuse to hold a vote. Mr. Speaker, 33,000 people were killed by gun violence in America last year. The American people deserve more than moments of silence. They deserve action to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of dangerous people. They deserve to have their voices heard. They deserve to send their kids to school without fearing an assault-style weapon will be waiting for them. But, at the very least, they deserve to know where each Member of Congress stands. I am asking my Republican colleagues to find the courage to hold a vote on real gun violence prevention legislation that will save American lives.”

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

  • “I am a vocal advocate for quality, affordable health care for everyone in the Inland Empire. My top priorities are to support the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, protect and strengthen Medicare and Medicaid, and attract physicians to provide care in our region.”
  • “Despite the Trump administration’s attempts to undermine the law, the Affordable Care Act continues to expand the number of people who have access to the care they need. There is far too much misleading information being shared by the White House and those who have vested interest in breaking our health care system. I strongly urge Californians to visit CoveredCA.com and see for themselves that affordable health care insurance is within reach.”

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

  • “Declaring a national emergency over a fabricated border crisis is an abuse of power. President Trump failed to get funding for his racist wall — even when Republicans controlled the House and the Senate — and is now overstepping his constitutional duties to fulfill a campaign promise that the majority of Americans oppose. This political stunt is irresponsible and sets a dangerous precedent — all because the President is not the master negotiator he claimed to be.”
  • “Today, President Donald Trump issued an executive order on immigration that is inhumane, wasteful, and illegal. Instead of investing in America’s schools, rebuilding our infrastructure, or cutting taxes on the middle class, the president is moving forward with the construction of a border wall that will cost American taxpayers billions of dollars while failing to address the challenges in our immigration system.”

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

  • “Rep. Takano supports a comprehensive immigration reform plan that includes a fair but tough pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who have worked hard, have lived in this country without committing serious criminal offenses, and believe in the American Dream”
  • 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)?     Does Not Support
  • Signed a letter stating: “We write to once again draw your attention to your constitutional responsibility to consult and receive authorization from Congress before ordering use of U.S. military force, which would include any military action against North Korea that is not in response to an attack by that country. The mandate requiring Congressional consultation and authorization is prescribed in both the U.S. Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973.”
  • 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.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “Few decisions are more needing of debate than a move to launch attacks, or declare war, on a nuclear-armed state such as North Korea. Military action against North Korea was considered by the Obama, Bush and Clinton Administrations, but all ultimately determined there was no military option that would not run the unacceptable risk of a counter-reaction from Pyongyang. This reaction 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 other regional allies such as Japan. 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.”

National Security: Do you support reducing military intervention in Middle East conflicts?    Unknown Position
  • “I am extremely concerned by President Trump’s decision to commit 4,000 more young Americans to the war in Afghanistan without a defined mission and clear goals. It is not clear how the plan outlined on Monday will move us closer to stabilizing the region. Instead, it will prolong a conflict that has already cost taxpayers more than a trillion dollars and, more importantly, cost thousands of American lives. When Congress returns in September, we must fulfill our responsibility to provide oversight over the president’s war-making authority. That means considering a new Authorization For The Use Of Military Force, which will prompt an open and honest debate about our ever-expanding foreign combat operations.”
  • “As Chairman of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I’m aware of the high cost of war, its catastrophic effects, and the knowledge that decision-makers who take our country into war don’t fully fathom the cost of taking care of our veterans. I am concerned that this Administration will lead us into war without Congressional authorization, which would be an overstep of Presidential power, and I have joined my colleagues in reiterating that the 2001 AUMF does not give the President the authority to start a war with Iran. I call upon the President and his advisors to dial down the provocative rhetoric and hostile activities that could be misinterpreted by Iranian leaders or some low-level Iranian commanders that will escalate into an unnecessary war.”
  • “We remain wary of the Iranian regime. But we believe that robust diplomacy remains our best possible strategic option, and we commend you and your designees for the developments in Geneva. Should negotiations fail or falter, nothing precludes a change in strategy. But we must not imperil the possibility of a diplomatic success before we even have a chance to pursue it.”

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “American auto workers, parts suppliers and retailers, dealers, vehicle service providers, and millions of consumers depend on a healthy and competitive U.S. auto industry. 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.”
  • Rated 100% by Public Citizen.
  • Voted in favor of HR 5430 – United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act.
