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 2022.

  • Rated 100% by NARAL Pro-Choice America. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 3755 "Women's Heatlh Protection Act of 2021." (votesmart.org)
  • "The case that the Supreme Court is hearing today presents a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade and the constitutionally protected right to abortion. Generations have had access to legal abortion because the Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed that people are entitled to make fundamental decisions about their own lives, their own families, and their own futures. Should Roe be eroded, undermined, or overturned, it will result in a patchwork of state laws that will disproportionally harm women of color and the economically vulnerable. In order to protect the rule of law and the rights of all Americans, the Supreme Court must do the right thing and uphold decades of precedent that guarantee access to abortion care. As a nation, we cannot go back and must do everything in our power to uphold a woman's right to make her own health care decisions." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Rated 100% by Alliance for Retired Americans. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • "We expand health care access for children, mothers, and seniors by permanently reauthorizing the Children's Health Insurance Program, improving maternal health care, and providing, for the first time, comprehensive hearing benefits under Medicare Part B. The legislation also makes a historic commitment to home- and community-based care so seniors and people with disabilities can get the care they need in their homes." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 1425 "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act." (votesmart.org)
  • "For over a year, President Trump and Congressional Republicans have done everything possible to sabotage our health care system. After showering corporations and the wealthiest few with tax cuts, Congressional Republicans have created a situation where we can provide permanent coverage to millions of kids through the CHIP program. This should be a no brainer -- we should stop the uncertainty and permanently extend CHIP." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Rated 93% by Common Cause. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • "Citizens United opened the floodgates for corporate influence into our electoral system. Increased transparency and public financing of our elections is necessary to save our democracy and level the playing field." (twitter.com)
  • Voted in favor of HR 1 "For the People Act of 2021." (votesmart.org)
  • "It’s time to overturn #CitizensUnited. I’m a cosponsor of the #DemocracyForAll Constitutional Amendment because power in our democracy should be in the hands of the American people." (twitter.com)
  • "It’s time to overturn #CitizensUnited. I’m a cosponsor of the #DemocracyForAll Constitutional Amendment because power in our democracy should be in the hands of the American people." (twitter.com)
  • "The Senate must pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act and more must be done to reform our prison system. The American people want action." (twitter.com)
  • "For too long, Black Americans have faced systemic racism and unjust force by the police. That is why I cast my vote in support of the Justice in Policing Act. It's past time to end police brutality, stop profiling, and hold police accountable. The bill bans chokeholds and no-knock warrants. It ensures that state and local law enforcement use body cameras. It also establishes a National Police Misconduct Registry to prevent problematic officers from being rehired. We can never replace the lives we have lost, but we can work together to ensure a more just society for every American." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 1280 "George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021." (votesmart.org)
  • ""The United States has long stood as a beacon for the rights of every person, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or nationality. We must continue to lead by example and ensure that American foreign aid does not contradict our values at home or abroad," Congressman Pallone said. "This amendment is especially important now as Azerbaijan threatens Armenia's safety and sovereignty with offensive attacks staged by Azeri armed forces in Armenia's Tavush region. The United States should not be aiding and abetting reckless, autocratic states with appalling human rights records for any reason."" (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Signed Letter to Secretary Shanahan "In New Jersey, there are military construction projects with funds appropriated towards construction at JBMDL, Picatinny Arsenal and Atlantic City International Airport to support our Armed Forces operations within the state. These projects have gone through a multi-year process of review and selection by both the Department of Defense (DOD) and Congress. Any delay or disruption of any one of these military construction projects will ultimately hinder the ability of our Armed Forces to carry out their missions effectively."
  • Voted against S 1605 "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022." (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 6395 "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021." (votesmart.org)

  • "With the passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill today, we are modernizing our crumbling infrastructure, revitalizing our economy, and combating the worsening climate crisis. Whether it be investments to expand renewable energy and make our electric grid more resilient and reliable, or funding for electric vehicle infrastructure, we are accelerating the move to clean energy." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • "The INVEST in America Act will revitalize and modernize our infrastructure, create new, good paying jobs, and take a leap forward in fulfilling President Biden's promise to Build Back Better. I'm especially proud that it includes critical drinking water provisions that would meaningfully improve both our drinking water infrastructure and our standard-setting process. Access to safe, affordable water is a basic human right, and this legislation upholds that by funding the complete replacement of lead service lines, helping local water systems clean up PFAS contamination, and ensuring that financial hardship never stands between any family and their access to drinking water," (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 3684 "Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act." (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 5376 "Build Back Better Act." (votesmart.org)
  • "The legislation also infuses $75 billion into the Provider Relief Fund. These funds will reimburse hospitals and health care providers for their expenses and revenue losses related to COVID-19, support the purchase of desperately needed Personal Protective Equipment and help keep hospitals open so they are able to continue to care for patients. Unfortunately, we were not able to reach an agreement on allocation guidelines in this bill, but I will continue to fight to ensure distribution is fair and responsive to the areas that are treating the highest number of COVID-19 patients." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of HR 266" Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act" (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of H.R. 5376 “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” (votesmart.org)

  • "The Inflation Reduction Act is the largest climate investment in history. I’m thrilled to see it’s already helping create new, clean jobs here at home. Expanding American clean energy was exactly our goal and is what we need to beat out foreign competitors." (twitter.com)
  • Voted in favor of H.R. 7688 “Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act” (votesmart.org)
  • "Congressional Republicans are upset that President Biden is forgiving the student loans of hardworking Americans that took on debt to get an education, but they had no problem when they passed their tax cuts for the ultra-rich and corporations." (twitter.com)
  • "I strongly urge the President to extend the pause and eliminate up to $50,000 in federal student loan debt." (twitter.com)
  • "Americans should be rewarded for pursuing an education with good jobs and opportunities, not insurmountable student loan debt. Suspending payments is a good first step, but it's time to take the next step and cancel student loan debt up to $50,000 for struggling borrowers." (twitter.com)
  • "Most Americans recognize that Republican efforts to restrict ballot access pose a serious threat to our democracy. The House passed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act a year ago, but McConnell is blocking this commonsense legislation to protect our democracy." (twitter.com)
  • Rated 93% by Common Cause. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of H.R. 4 “John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2021” (votesmart.org)
  • Voted in favor of H.R. 5746 “Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act” (votesmart.org)
  • ""The Clean Economy Jobs and Innovation Act will spur clean energy innovation, electrify our transportation sector, make homes more energy efficient, modernize our electric grid and create good paying jobs right here at home at a time we need them most. It also addresses the need for environmental justice by investing in grant programs for impacted communities and improving information sharing so Americans can be better informed about the risks in their neighborhoods. It is a net win for our environment and economy alike," said Chairman Pallone. "What's more, it presents practical and achievable policies that have a real shot at becoming law this year after negotiations with the Senate. I'm grateful to all my colleagues who worked with me on this sweeping energy package, and proud that the House took decisive action to pass it today."" (justfacts.votesmart.org)

  • Voted against HR 1119 "SENSE Act." (votesmart.org)
  • "EPA's COVID-19 enforcement policy gave license to companies to violate our environmental laws and needlessly weakened public health protections at a time when they were needed most. This policy had no business being put into effect, but fortunately it will be coming to an end soon. We demanded a firm end date because we had feared that the Administration would not commit to one otherwise, and might attempt to keep this policy in place indefinitely." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Rated 100% by League of Conservation Voters. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • "The legislation will also drive down pollution from the oil and gas industry through a new Methane Emissions Reduction Program. Substantial investments in electric vehicle charging stations and clean heavy-duty vehicles like school buses, will serve the dual purpose of slashing our carbon emissions while helping American manufacturing stay globally competitive. We simply cannot wait any longer to combat the climate crisis -- bold action is needed now." (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • Rated 100% by Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • ""Gun violence is a national public health threat that demands federal action," Pallone and Eshoo said.

The hearing will bring together community members, care providers and policy experts for a community-centered discussion on ways to intervene in these senseless tragedies that have become all too common throughout our country. This critical discussion will be instructive on how to better protect our communities from the scourge of gun violence."" (justfacts.votesmart.org)
  • ""Gun violence is a public health crisis, and we cannot afford to wait any longer to act," said Pallone. "It's past time to finally enact commonsense legislation that will save lives and make our communities safer. The Handgun Licensing and Registration Act raises the threshold requirements for handgun ownership nationally to reflect the smart actions taken in New Jersey. Without meaningful legislation, the thoughts and prayers Members of Congress offer after each tragic loss of life are worthless."" (justfacts.votesmart.org)

This candidate has responded to a Political Courage Test in a previous election. As a continued effort to provide the American public with factual information on candidates running for public office, these archived responses are made available here.
Pro-choice Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?
I am a strong supporter of the Women's Health Protection Act, H.R. 2975, which would enact Roe v. Wade into federal law. My Committee held a hearing on this legislation earlier this year.
No In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?
Yes Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?
I would restore the corporate tax rate that was reduced by President Trump's 2017 tax overhaul. This tax scam hit New Jersyans especially hard when they got rid of state and local tax (SALT) deductions that were used by many families in our state. I will continue to fight for the repeal of this provision and work to ensure every American is paying their fair share. Social Security and Medicare are critical safety nets for the most vulnerable among us. I authored and led the House-passage of H.R. 3 reducing prescription drug prices and used the savings to expand Medicare
Yes Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?
I strongly support campaign finance reform. In January, the first piece of legislation introduced and passed was H.R. 1, the For the People Act. It would transform how campaigns are funded to amplify the voices of ordinary Americans and bolster election security. The For the People Act would expand access to the ballot box, targeting institutional barriers to voting that disenfranchise voters creating major roadblocks to voting, especially for minorities. It will create automatic voter registration; ensuring individuals who've completed felony sentences have their rights restored; expand early voting, simplify absentee voting; and modernize the voting system.
No Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct?
No Do you support increasing defense spending?
The Pentagon and the ever-increasing defense budget draws much-needed funding away from our country's domestic needs. For instance, I believe that instead of wasting trillions of dollars on the F-35 fighter program, we could have used those funds to fix our broken bridges and roads, replace lead pipes for safer drinking water, shore up our health care system to make it more affordable, and help to pay for the expansion of broadband to ensure internet connectivity for all American families.
Yes Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?
No Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?
Yes Do you support providing financial relief to businesses AND/OR corporations negatively impacted by the state of national emergency for COVID-19?
U.S. corporate taxes are already some of the lowest in the world, allowing corporations to take advantage of the American education system, public infrastructure, and so much more without contributing back to our country. I also believe decisive action should be taken to track down and repatriate taxes from corporations who purposefully seek to hide their wealth in foreign tax havens. 3) but I believe most, if not all, of this aid should go toward smaller, locally owned businesses and should have strict oversight as to how these funds are being used. Right now, it is critical that we help
Yes Do you support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?
In some instances, -- such as civil rights concerns -- the federal government will need to require nationwide standards while leaving curriculum decisions to state and local officials.
Yes Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, geo-thermal)?
Yes Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?
During my time as Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, I have taken numerous steps to address the existential threats that climate change poses. I led legislation preventing Trump from withdrawing from the landmark Paris Climate Agreement, which passed the House of Representatives in May 2019. More recently, I drafted the CLEAN Future Act, which is comprehensive climate change legislation that would achieve a 100 percent clean economy. This bill also underscores the importance of protecting American workers and providing critical assistance to minority groups that are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change.
Yes Do you generally support gun-control legislation?
America has an epidemic of gun violence that is both heartbreaking and shameful. I support gun violence prevention measures and have consistently backed stricter background checks like the ones found in the Bipartisan Background Checks Act that passed the House of Representatives in March 2019. Even though an overwhelming majority of Americans support commonsense solutions to protect our communities from gun violence, those solutions have been hard to achieve because entrenched interests like the gun lobby have used big money and influence to stop Congress from acting.
No Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare")?
Yes Do you support requiring businesses to provide paid medical leave during public health crises, such as COVID-19?
As one of the main authors of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), I've always fought for access to affordable, quality health care. We've seen Congressional Republicans and the Trump Administration consistently trying to repeal and sabotage the ACA. I sponsored several bills lowering the cost of prescription drugs, protecting patients from surprise billing, improving maternal care disparities, and addressing gun violence as a public health threat. I am also the lead author of legislation to make coronavirus testing, drugs, treatment and an eventual vaccine free for all.
No Do you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?
No Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?
I am a strong supporter of an immediate pathway to citizenship for DREAMers and for our immigrant neighbors with Temporary Protected Status (TPS). Undocumented immigrants who have not been convicted of serious criminal offenses should also have a pathway to citizenship. The United States must continue to be open to asylum seekers. Our history is one of granting refuge to those who have been persecuted.
No 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)?
Yes Do you support reducing military intervention in Middle East conflicts?
Military force should only be used as a last resort. President Bush used the threat of weapons of mass destruction as an excuse to invade Iraq when in reality that country did not possess such weapons.
No Do you generally support removing barriers to international trade (for example: tariffs, quotas, etc.)?
American workers have suffered greatly because of bad trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement. NAFTA is structured in a way that puts corporations before people, allowing them to setup factories abroad that skirt health and safety standards and ignore environmental regulations. Free trade deals are generally unfavorable to the United States and our trading partners often do not live up to their obligations.
Making health care more accessible and affordable, advancing my comprehensive climate change legislation, and ensuring consumer and public safety are my top concerns today and for the next Congress.
