The Democrats thoughts on MIn Wage

There is no doubt that Democrats want to raise the federal minimum wage. But the party's draft platform for 2016, which will be finalized on Friday, seems purposely murky. It says that “Americans should earn at least $15 an hour,” yet it doesn't call for setting the federal minimum at that level.

They believe that a health care system that is run by the government will reduce both the efficiency and the standard of care, as well as compromise the patient-physician relationship, and increase waiting periods within the health care system, as evidenced by government-centered health care systems throughout the world.

the democrats thoughts on welfare

For more than a century, the growing left wing of the Democratic Party had been pursuing a secularist and socialist agenda for America. Their method is class warfare-pitting one group of Americans against another. It's the rich versus the poor, men versus woman, the 1% versus the 99%, the insurance company versus the uninsured, and the natural gas driller versus his neighbors. They don't want to improve on America's success, correct its mistakes, and help it live up to its promise. They think that something is wrong with America at its core-that is it needs to be "fundamentally transformed." Their progress was slow but steady until they achieved their breakthrough in 2008 with the election of Barack Obama and supermajority Democrat control of both houses of Congress.

The democrats thoughts on tax reforms

President Obama and Democrats in Congress cut taxes for every working family, putting more money in the pockets of Americans who need it most. A typical family has saved $3,600 during his first term. Now he's fighting to stop middle class families and those aspiring to join the middle class from seeing their taxes go up and to extend key tax relief for working families and those paying for college, while asking the wealthiest and corporations to pay their fair share.

the republicans thoughts on tax reforms

Republicans say their line in the sand is "no tax increases." I'm glad so many Republicans are talking tough about the problem being overspending, not under-taxation. I've been making that case since 1995. If these same Republicans, who continue to vote for more spending, had been as resolute since 1995, the problem would be much easier to solve. Every dollar of deficit spending Republicans backed--along with Democrats--was a deferred tax increase. Our present challenges prove that deficits do matter

The Republican Thoughts on gay marriage

The Republican Party stands behind a traditional definition of marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman. This belief does not come from a hatred of homosexuals, as many people try to color it, but from a belief that the institution of marriage was set up for both men and women.

The Republicans thoughts on social security

We believe every American deserves a secure, healthy, and dignified retirement. During their working years, Americans contribute to Social Security in exchange for a promise that they will receive an income in retirement. Unlike those in the other party, we will find a solution to protect Social Security for future generations.
