After Reading Maxine Waters’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

  • “Donald Trump showed us who he really is during the campaign when he admitted to grabbing women by their private parts, so today’s attack by the Trump administration on women’s health should come as no surprise. The rule, issued today, allows employers–even ones with no religious affiliation– to deny their employees birth control coverage as previously required by the Affordable Care Act. This is an attack on all of the 62 million women nationwide that rely on the Affordable Care Act’s birth control coverage.”
  • Rated 100% by Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?      Supports
  • “The GOP tax scam law is yet another conscious decision by the president and his Republican allies to rig the system in favor of large corporations, GOP donors, special interest groups, and wealthy individuals like Donald Trump himself. However, make no mistake, I will continue to fight against Republican efforts to sell out working families in favor of the rich.”

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

  • “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell even had the audacity to predict that the tax cuts did not need to be paid for because they would pay for themselves. However, ten months later, the federal deficit has skyrocketed 17 percent to an astonishing $779 billion — due in large part to the GOP tax scam — and Majority Leader McConnell has stated that the rising federal debt is “very disturbing,’ but is “driven by the three biggest entitlement programs that are very popular: Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid,’ implying a need for sharp budget cuts to these vital programs.”
  • “During a time when we need to preserve and strengthen Medicare and Medicaid, the Republican Budget moves us backward.”
  • Rated 100% by Alliance for Retired Americans.

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: “Each of these changes would have dramatic implications for our nation’s campaign finance system, widening the channels of influence for wealthy and well-connected campaign donors and further exacerbating the flood of undisclosed and unaccountable “secret money” into our political system.[2] Yet, the 115th Congress has not held one hearing, commissioned a single study, nor investigated in any serious way the ramifications of these ill-conceived policy riders. Put simply, it is irresponsible for Congress to advance these campaign finance changes without due deliberation and public debate. As we know all too well, Americans trust in government is nearing an all-time low.[3] Driving this historic mistrust is the public’s belief that concentrated money in politics has undue influence on our political system. In fact, a recent survey found that Americans — from across the political spectrum — identified money in politics as the number one cause for dysfunction in Washington, D.C. [4] In the face of this reality, it would be unconscionable to exploit the must-pass FY18 omnibus spending agreement to further erode our nation’s campaign finance system.”

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.
  • “Police reform is NOT ENOUGH. Getting rid of serial, racist, ignorant, & stupid cops must be a top priority. Let’s call them out! Police protective unions, you’ve got to go too!” (twitter.com)

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?       Unknown Position

  • Rated 0% by the Center for Security Policy.
  • Rated 92% by the Council for a Livable World.
  • Rated 93% by Peace Action.

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

  • Voted in favor of H.R.22 “Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act”
  • “The Congresswoman’s first amendment provides $550 million for TIGER in fiscal year 2018, which is the same as the amount provided by the Senate in its spending bill. The Congresswoman’s second amendment provides $7.5 billion for TIGER in order to jump start infrastructure investments and create jobs nationwide. The amendments were cosponsored by Reps. Andre Carson (D-IN), Elizabeth H. Esty (D-CT), Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI), Mark Pocan (D-WI), and Raul M. Grijalva (D-AZ).[2]”

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

  • “Today an unpopular Speaker, historically unpopular President, and dreadfully unpopular Republican-led Congress are celebrating the passage of a wildly unpopular bill that no one wanted. The Republican tax bill is a scam. It is a giveaway to corporations and the top 1% of wealthy Americans. The bill raises taxes on the hard-working middle class, borrows against the future by adding trillions to the deficit, forces millennials to fix our deficit crisis years from now, and rapidly accelerates the concentration of wealth toward the top 1%. This is yet another conscious decision by the Trump Administration to ignore the needs of millions of Americans who have worked hard to provide for themselves and their families, and, instead, prioritize the profits of large corporations, GOP donors, special interest groups, and Donald Trump himself.”

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

  • Rated 100% by the National Education Association.
  • “Today I was disappointed by the passage of H.R. 5 — the so called “Student Success Act’ — which guts funding for education across the board, shifts resources away from the most needy students, fails to guarantee educational equality for all students, and fails to support teachers and principals around the country.”

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

  • “ENVIRONMENT: Donald Trump’s budget cuts funding for the Environmental Protection Agency by 26 percent in fiscal year 2019. It cuts clean air programs by 46 percent and cuts $1.3 billion from energy efficiency and renewable energy, while simultaneously increasing fossil fuel energy research and development by more than $80 million. It also completely eliminates the Chemical Safety Board, which investigates serious chemical accidents and is currently investigating an explosion at the Torrance Refinery in my congressional district.”

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

  • Signed a letter stating: “One of the three pillars of the Climate Action Plan is to lead international efforts to address global climate change. As a nation that has contributed more than a quarter of all global carbon pollution, it is our responsibility to lead. As a nation already feeling the effects and costs of climate change, it is also in our national interest to do so. In order to solve the problem of climate change, it is essential that the United States has allies in cutting carbon pollution. As we have seen time and time again, other countries will join us, if America leads the way.”

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

  • “This is a very difficult subject. You have heard from my colleagues for some days now about our determination to deal with this issue of gun violence. You have heard about the bills that we have tried to get taken up on the floor to deal with gun violence. Very simple bills. One bill that is a bill that has been characterized as no fly, no buy, simply meaning that if you are too dangerous to be on an airplane, you are too dangerous to be able to buy a gun. And, of course, universal background checks to make sure we know who is seeking to purchase weapons and what their backgrounds are and whether or not they should be allowed to purchase a gun.”

Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)?      Does Not Support
  • “Furthermore, the Republican proposal lays the groundwork for another cruel attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which would strip health coverage from millions of Americans.[1]”

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

  • “Trump has repeatedly shown that he has no interest in standing up for hardworking Americans and this proposal is just another example. This budget is the largest in federal history and includes an additional $8.6 billion for the construction of a senseless border wall.”
  • “This budget blueprint illustrates that Trump is more concerned with threatening the world with another nuclear arms race and sinking billions into a border wall than ensuring that all Americans have a home, good schools, access to affordable health care, and the financial security to retire”

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

  • “The current immigration system is broken and must be fixed with a comprehensive plan that balances border security and strong enforcement with a workable path to legalization for those already here.”

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
  • Rated 0% by the Center for Security Policy.
  • “President Trump’s announcement today that he is withdrawing the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal–and imposing the highest level of sanctions–will undermine U.S. national security and global stability. To date, the Iran accord has been effective in blocking Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon. Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the deal will allow Iran to pursue a nuclear weapons program–unconstrained, without UN inspectors, and without any recourse to stop them short of a U.S-led war and occupation.”
  • “This reckless action will alienate our allies, trigger a long-term isolation of America as a diplomatic power, and likely put the United States on a path of escalation with Iran. And there is an obvious link here to Trump’s so-called diplomacy with North Korea. The Administration’s ability to pursue a credible diplomatic path with respect to Kim Jong-un’s nuclear program will be seriously undermined if North Korea and our allies believe the U.S. can’t be trusted to stand by its international commitments.”

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

  • “Sadly, it appears that none of the efforts the U.S. and Europe have made so far in Syria have produced the desired results: a transition away from the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, and the return of peace and stability. In fact, with the introduction of Russian military equipment and personnel, and with increasing Western military efforts directed at both ISIL and Assad-regime forces, there is every possibility that violence will escalate. This would continue the devastation of the Syrian populace, worsen the refugee crisis, and risk an increasing probability of expanded military conflict in the region. For these reasons, it is time to devote ourselves to a negotiated peace, and work with allies, including surrounding Arab states that have a vested interest in the security and stability of the region, moving forward with both a peace plan and a coordinated assault against ISIL.”
  • Rated 0% by the Center for Security Policy.
  • 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.)?      Supports

  • “Donald Trump’s trade wars have caused tremendous suffering among American farmers, so much so that the USDA has offered a total of $28 billion over the past year to farmers adversely impacted by retaliatory tariffs. This taxpayer money could have been spent to improve our nation’s schools and health services, fix dilapidated roads and bridges, and expand services to seniors and veterans in rural and urban communities alike. Instead, the Trump administration is giving billions in bailouts to farmers who are losing money because of his foolish trade wars.”
  • “This President has started a trade war that is already harming American consumers and companies.”
