Issue Positions

For Presidential and Congressional candidates who refuse to provide voters with their positions, Vote Smart has researched their public records to determine their likely responses. These issue positions are from 2020.

  • "I have thought long and hard about abortion and have reached this conclusion: life begins at conception." (
  • "As such, I strongly support Representative Rob Woodall's FairTax Act to abolish the Federal income tax, employment tax, and estate and gift tax, and replace them with a national sales tax and prebate that eliminates the effect of sales taxes on low-income families." (
  • Rated 84% by National Taxpayers Union. (
  • Rated 0% by Alliance for Retired Americans. (
  • "Socialist Democrats on the House Rules Committee are holding a hearing today on the Medicare for All Act of 2019 (aka government run healthcare act). Make no mistake, government run healthcare will result in higher costs & longer wait times for worse care." (
  • Despite exhaustive research, Vote Smart was unable to find information about this candidate's position.
  • "Congressman Brooks supports a highway transportation bill that pays for itself without adding to the deficit." (
  • "Roads should be built via existing tax methods: gas, property, whatever." (
  • "I was pleased the President tonight addressed restarting the engine of the American economy and removing burdensome regulations that have made it so difficult to start and grow a business in America." (
  • "The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act cuts corporate and pass-through tax rates, allows full and immediate expensing of new equipment, and encourages companies to bring back overseas profits needed to spur investment in factories and jobs in America. Overall, these tax reforms make American job-creators more competitive in a cut-throat international marketplace, thereby protecting and creating even more jobs and bigger paychecks for struggling American families." (
  • Despite exhaustive research, Vote Smart was unable to find information about this candidate's position.
  • Rated 0% by National Education Association. (
  • "In my view, the federal government has no business dictating to local and state governments how to operate their K-12 schools." (
  • "Regardless of what is written on global agreements in response to the hysteria, the global transition away from fossil fuels will only happen when the unsubsidized alternatives are finally less expensive." (
  • Voted in favor of HR 1119 - SENSE Act. (
  • "The EPA is misusing the Clean Air Act to force states to implement higher cost greenhouse gas emission standards without regard for the damage ensuing higher utility costs will have on strained American family budgets" (
  • "During this Congress, the House Republican plan for creating jobs and ending destructive policies has included several prominent pieces of legislation, such as the EPA Regulatory Relief Act and the Regulations From the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act of 2011, both of which the Congressman cosponsored. Unfortunately, many of these key common-sense bills have been held up in the Senate." (
  • "As an Alabamian, I understand and respect gun rights in America. With liberal special interests across the country working everyday to undermine our gun rights, I will continue to fight back against any attacks on our 2nd Amendment rights." (
  • "Congressman Brooks voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) on January 19, 2011, and he also has voted numerous times to repeal various PPACA provisions." (
  • Voted in favor of HR 6201 - Families First Coronavirus Response Act. (
  • Rated 100% by Federation for American Immigration Reform. (
  • "I think we are going to pass funding for about $1.6 billion for a border security wall, that is what President Trump wants. However, when it goes to the Senate, if past history is any guide, it is going to get stripped out. We saw something similar to that happen in April, where the Senate refused to support President Trump's border security wall, in effect denying the voters, the tens of millions of voters in the United States, who want that security on our southern border." (
  • "By any measure, any amnesty, including amnesty for DACA illegal aliens, makes the illegal alien problem worse and, over the long haul, costs American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars America does not have, has to borrow to get, and cannot afford to pay back." (
  • Rated 100% by Federation for American Immigration Reform. (
  • "If Iran becomes a nuclear state, it will destabilize the Middle East and seriously threaten the survival of our strongest ally in the region. Netanyahu gave an excellent portrayal of the dangers associated with Iran obtaining nuclear weapons. A nuclear Iran threatens not only Israel, but the peace of the entire world. I pray the American people, and the world, are listening. As long as Iran continues its reign of aggression and support of terror, the United States must insist that restrictions on Iran's nuclear program remain in place." (
  • "Hence, the United States has no national security interest in the six attacked tankers sufficient to trigger an American retaliatory military action against Iran." (
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy. (
  • "Congressman Brooks is in favor of fair trade practices that will help create American jobs for the future." (
