After Reading Jerry McNerney’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 the National Right to Life Committee.
  • Rated 100% by NARAL Pro-Choice America.
  • Rated 100% by Planned Parenthood Action Fund.
  • Signed a letter stating: “We ask that you demonstrate your commitment to being a President for all people in the United States by eliminating the Hyde Amendment, as well as related abortion coverage and care restrictions from your Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Budget Request.”

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?     Supports
  • Signed a letter stating: “With that in mind, we read with interest your recent joint statement with the Senate Majority Leader suggesting that these required across-the-board cuts “will not happen.” These cuts would be a direct consequence of your massive $1.5 trillion deficit increase from tax cuts for the wealthy, so it is confusing to hear that you and Leader McConnell “will work to ensure these spending cuts are prevented.” We are curious how you plan to do that, as the obvious solution would be not to pass those tax cuts in the first place.”

Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?     Supports
  • Rated 100% by Alliance for Retired Americans.
  • “I’m also committed to preserving and strengthening Medicare.”
  • “Social Security has provided retirement security to countless people. I will strongly oppose any plan to privatize Social Security or reduce benefits and will work to protect the program for today’s seniors and the coming generations of beneficiaries. I have worked hard to help seniors navigate the Social Security Administration bureaucracy and get the benefits to which they’re entitled.”
  • “After a lifetime of paying into Social Security and Medicare, America’s seniors should be able to count on these programs to provide a stable and secure retirement. It is a sacred pact with seniors that we must protect.” (jerrymcnerney.org)

Campaign Finance: Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?     Supports
  • “Congressman Walter Jones and I launched the bipartisan Congressional Campaign Finance Reform Caucus to address the undue influence of money on our political process. […] The Campaign Finance Reform Caucus is comprised of Members of Congress who believe that our existing campaign finance system is broken, and it is in need of substantive changes to put the voice of the people back into our electoral process. The current system is corrupted by excessive amounts of money from both sides of the aisle. This ever-increasing amount of money flowing into the U.S. political system distorts the electoral process and stifles the ability of elected officials to effectively govern and represent their constituents.” (mcnerney.house.gov)
  • “Unfortunately, the Supreme Court appears to have a strong bias toward more money in politics, and it has consistently issued rulings to that effect. The Supreme Court even sought out, they even asked for, the infamous Citizens United case to be brought forward to them. Then, ultimately, they ruled that corporations have the same rights–free speech–as individual citizens do, as individual people do. The meaning of that decision is that corporations can use their treasuries to finance campaigns. I can’t think of anything more corrosive or destructive to our democracy than that. The system was already bad before the Citizens United decision, but this thing made it much worse. Unfortunately, the Citizens United decision is just one of a series of decisions that allows more and more money into politics, and I truly believe that this is a threat to our cherished democratic and republican institutions.”

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.
  • “Today the U.S. House of Representatives showed the world that we believe Black lives matter. The remnants of slavery and the Jim Crowe Era have maintained a stronghold on our institutions, with the criminal justice system disproportionately penalizing Black Americans and people of color and giving almost blanket immunity to those who disregard human life and dignity. The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act would make a real difference by instituting much needed systemic change.” (www.facebook.com)

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?    Unknown Position
  • Rated 11% by Center for Security Policy.
  • Rated 87% by Peace Action.
  • 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
  • “It is critical that our nation continue to invest in our local and national transportation systems including highways, rail, waterways, and air transportation so that our region can grow and benefit. I have been a strong and effective advocate for improving our highways and major roads. I’ve secured funding for many of the major transportation routes throughout the region, including more than $5.5 million for highway and transit projects in Stockton.”
  • Voted in favor of H.R.22 “Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act”

Economy: Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?    Does Not Support
  • “I introduced a bill called the Stop Outsourcing and Create American Jobs Act to get tough on companies that ship our jobs abroad. My bill closes tax loopholes used by big corporations to send jobs overseas and gives preferences in government contracts to companies that hire workers here at home.”

Economy: Do you support providing financial relief to businesses AND/OR corporations negatively impacted by the state of national emergency for COVID-19?    Supports
  • “I came to Washington to ensure passage of the CARES Act so Americans will have what they need during this crisis. I will continue to listen to experts and scientists to curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect the long-term health of our economy.” (twitter.com)
  • “Right now, it’s up to Congress to provide the assistance needed to keep Americans safe and to make sure we get our economy back on track. That’s why we passed a relief package today to help small businesses in addition to providing more funds for our frontline health care workers.” (www.facebook.com)

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

  • Endorsed by National Education Association.
  • Rated 0% by the National Education Association.
  • “One of the ways we can start is by reforming federal education policy to provide accountability and flexibility. Our policies should take advantage of America’s true creative spirit to equip our youth with the tools they need to succeed in a competitive international environment.”

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

  • “We need a forward-thinking energy policy more than ever. California families have suffered too much from volatile and high gas prices. The most effective way to address this problem is to reduce our consumption of oil and other fossil fuels for the economic well-being of California families, for our national security, and for the environment. I’m leading the fight for balanced policies that keep energy bills low by responsibly producing more energy domestically, investing in energy efficiency, and bringing online new forms of clean energy resources.”
  • Signed a letter stating “We are writing on behalf of the 80,000 Americans employed by the U.S. wind industry, representing jobs in all fifty states, to ask that you promptly extend the current law Production Tax Credit (PTC) and the Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Wind now provides power to over 15 million American homes, as well as to many thousands of farms and businesses.” (loebsack.house.gov)

Energy and Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?     Supports
  • “Climate change is one of the most important national issues we face right now, and the evidence for climate change is overwhelming. So now, when we have the opportunity when technology is being developed, there is money being spent by the Federal Government and by private industry to develop carbon-capture sequestration, let’s go ahead and take advantage of that, implement it in our power plants on a limited basis now so when the need is there, it will be available.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “At Paris, the United States pledged a 26 to 28 percent reduction in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, and we are already well on the way. These goals are achievable, but they will require hard work, and along the way will create massive opportunities for American companies and workers. Reviewing and updating our contributions to the Paris Agreement are part of the process, but we know that our economic growth and dealing with this threat are not mutually exclusive.”

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

  • “We must pass legislation to strengthen background checks, ban high-capacity magazines and reinstitute the ban on assault weapons.” (www.facebook.com)
  • Rated 0% by the National Rifle Association.
  • Signed a letter stating “Our nation has suffered at least 74 school shootings since the Sandy Hook massacre. The factors allowing these rampages are no mystery: loopholes in the background check laws, straw purchases, restrictions on law enforcement, and gaps in our mental health system.”

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

  • “In California, and in my district, we are seeing that the Affordable Care Act works. Hardworking families are receiving quality health care coverage through the state exchange.”
  • “It’s been nearly four years since Congress passed the Affordable Care Act. In that time, we’ve already seen some of its positive effects; young adults able to stay on their parents’ insurance longer, a reduction in waste and fraud in Medicare, the elimination of discrimination against per-existing conditions, and more affordable prescription drugs for seniors.” (mcnerney.house.gov)

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

  • “As we navigate the #COVID19 crisis, Americans need access to paid sick leave and paid family and medical leave. That’s why I’m proud to have voted for the #FamiliesFirst #Coronavirus Response Act.” (twitter.com)
  • 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
  • “Every country has a responsibility to secure its borders and we need sufficient funding for our border patrol and investment in surveillance and enforcement technology. […] I support securing our borders and making sure our law enforcement personnel are equipped with the resources they need to achieve this goal.” (jerrymcnerney.org)
  • “Today the president announced his decision to trample over the Constitution in a nefarious effort to fulfill a campaign promise that he knew would never come true. What began as a vow to make Mexico pay for 1,400 miles of a solid concrete wall quickly became scattered “steel slats” that would be paid for by American taxpayers — with no cohesive strategy to strengthen security or address the humanitarian crisis at our southern border.”

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 President’s policy is both responsible and compassionate. Americans who believe that immigrants actually help strengthen our nation and believe that families should not be ripped apart should rally around our President and support his policy.”
  • 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.”
  • “We need to create a system to given legal status to the immigrants already in our country and establish a tough but clear and humanitarian path to citizenship with a goal of keeping families together.”

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
  • “Employing military action in any capacity is an incredibly serious decision. This administration’s current rhetoric regarding North Korea is reckless and further illustrates the need for continued Congressional oversight and diplomatic options in addressing potential threats from North Korea.” (www.facebook.com)
  • “Regarding Iran’s participation in terrorism and other hostile activities, this agreement does nothing to prevent the United States from taking appropriate actions to punish or further sanction Iran in the future. With or without the agreement, our nation must stay vigilant, keeping a watchful eye for any aggression on Iran’s part that threatens the region or any of our allies through terrorist activities. And we should consider any necessary additional steps needed to maintain peace and security in the region.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “We also write to express our strong support for recent developments that provide hope for a peaceful resolution to the escalation in tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.”
  • “I strongly disagree with the decision to reject the Iran nuclear agreement (JCPOA). This will likely hurt American consumers at the pump, alienate our allies, and make us less safe. This is another example of this administration’s disregard for our national security.” (www.facebook.com)
  • Signed a letter stating: “Absent credible and accurate information confirming a material breach, we are concerned that withholding certification of Iran’s compliance or walking away from the JCPOA would harm our alliances, embolden Iran, and threaten U.S. national security. We are further concerned that non-certification based on justifications beyond the scope of the nuclear agreement would threaten global non-proliferation efforts and send exactly the wrong message to North Korea at the moment we are trying to diplomatically defuse that crisis.”

National Security: Do you support reducing military intervention in Middle East conflicts?     Unknown Position
  • “While I supported the McKeon amendment, I want to urge my colleagues to consider the long-term effects of authorizing force: to our soldiers and their families, to innocent civilians, and to sustained stability in the Middle East. I also urge the Administration to use restraint as we continue to search for ways to strengthen collaboration and cooperation with regional allies as we work toward diplomatic and political solutions to problems in the area.”
  • “My highest priority as a member of Congress is the safety and security of the people in my district, and the protection of all Americans. The horror and tragedy of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris have echoed around the world, and serve as a stark reminder that we must do everything possible to keep our country safe. Any actions or policies that we advance in response to the brutality and hatred we’ve seen in Europe and the Middle East should bolster the security of our nation, and promote greater safety for our people. These efforts should reflect our American values, and our position as a leader in the international community.”
  • “By escalating tensions with Iran, this administration sends us closer to another senseless war without any Congressional input or our Constitutionally-required authorization for use of military force. After decades of endless war, the American people have had enough. #NoIranWar.” (twitter.com)

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

  • Voted in favor of HR 5430 – United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act.
  • Signed a letter stating: “Farmers are the bedrock of our rural economy, representing one of our nation’s top industries. They are navigating declining commodity prices and unstable trade markets all the while net farm income continues to fall. Our farmers deserve predictability in national trade policies, especially given the impact of trade deals on the agricultural economy. As these trade negotiations and tariff issues persist, it is important to ensure the needs of fruit, vegetable and tree nut producers are heard and reflected in these policies.”
  • “The harm that free trade causes is substantial enough to call into question what sort of political support trade policies will have in the future. To address this problem, I would like to offer a conceptual solution: require that a share of trade-related profits be invested in infrastructure here in America. This can be accomplished through taxes, formula expenditures, public-private partnerships, or any combination thereof. This policy would more equitably share the benefits of trade by creating jobs and business opportunities across our nation.”
  • Rated 100% by Public Citizen.
  • “I strongly believe that any trade agreement must protect middle class families and prioritize jobs for American workers. Too many American jobs have been outsourced as a result of prior deals; we must ensure that any agreement strengthens the middle class and does not unduly benefit one American industry at the expense of another. It is also important that aspects of this agreement maintain strong environmental protections and don’t threaten our efforts to combat climate change.”
