With economic growth at an all-time low, everybody’s asking questions about the next economic strategy. Many people are pretty apprehensive about the traditional conservative policies pursued by Trump, such as the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In contrast, the Democratic presidential candidates are pushing for the expansion of the social safety net, starting with healthcare.
The Democrats have also proposed radical economic plans such as tax breaks, loan forgiveness….


Healthcare holds a special place in all the 2020 election debates. Democrats have been actively advocating the cause of Health Care and Medicare for all. Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado proposed Medicare-X, which would make healthcare more affordable under the Affordable Care Act. Earlier, Trump promised to initiate a GOP health-coverage plan for all. He promised that this plan would be considerably less expensive than Obamacare. Amidst all speculations, everyone seems to be looking for a comprehensive and inexpensive Healthcare Program…


Cybersecurity continues to be a core issue for presidential candidates in 2020 as the whole nation has already witnessed a series of data breaches in the last few years. We need to be absolutely sure that the candidates in question have a privacy policy published on their websites. Sen. Elizabeth Warren appears to be the most aware candidate on cybersecurity issues at the moment due to her insistence on adopting stronger cybersecurity practices. Donald Trump’s position on cybersecurity suffered since the news of his past public breach and Russian interference….


Andrew Yang, a popular Democratic candidate, observed that the rates of incarceration in the US are four times higher than in most advanced countries. He also said that the criminal justice system is in dire need of reform as the system takes a harsher action against blacks and other minorities. President Trump’s campaign website says that he signed Executive Order 13809 to maintain State and local law enforcement’s access to surplus equipment from the Defense Department, like armored vehicles. Sen. Bernie Sanders, on the other hand….


U.S educational system reform continues to play a pivotal role in the 2020 U.S. election. Teachers in the U.S. are one of the lowest-paid professionals in comparison to other advanced countries. In the middle of all this, Joe Biden’s education plan proposes to increase the pay of teachers through Title I came as a ray of hope for teachers who are not content with their pay scale. On the other hand, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ plan to cancel outstanding student loans has been sneered at by people who think forgiving loans for students who can afford to pay is not a viable solution….



President Trump has always been known for his strong views on fighting illegal immigration. Democratic candidate Julian Castro spoke in favor of decriminalizing illegal immigration. Sen. Bernie Sanders is pushing for the expansion of DACA and wants to offer legal status to immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. Other strong Democratic candidates such as Joe Biden and Sen. Michael Bennet support a government-funded healthcare plan that would cover undocumented migrants. Trump expressed his dissatisfaction with….



The defense budget has been an issue of great contention among all presidential candidates in 2020. Some support increased military spending while others propose a major cut in the defense budget. On Monday, President Trump released a $4.8 trillion budget proposal. It included a familiar list of major cuts to student loan assistance, affordable housing schemes, Medicaid, and food stamps. This move directly displays Mr. Trump’s election-year attempt to continue shrinking the federal safety net. This proposal is quite unlikely to be approved in its entirety by Congress, and it features additional spending for….



With the cases of gun violence on the rise in the US, almost every presidential candidate favors universal background checks and an assault weapons ban. President Trump advocated for a federal red flag law, which would permit the police to confiscate a person’s firearms based on some evidence of a risk of violence. Democratic candidates, on the other hand, have agreed to take a stricter measure against the escalating issue of gun violence. Sen. Elizabeth Warren aspires to bring down gun death rates by 80 percent. She also advocates for gun licensing and urban gun violence intervention programs….



George Washington once advised the nation to “avoid entangling alliances” with other nations. These words still mark its significance in shaping the US’s foreign policy. However, the inevitable fact is that the United States has always been deeply engrossed in global politics; therefore, it takes a toll on the government in terms of time, energy, and money. 

President Donald Trump announced additional measures to punish those coming in the way of upholding democracy and security. His America First foreign policy talks about restoring respect for the country across the world…



The 2020 US election is unleashing several significant issues taking into account the contemporary world scenarios. The opinions and stance revolving around electoral policies and execution is one such. Financing for the respective candidates’ campaign, voting rights, and execution of a fair election are all being talked about with diverse points of view on the candidates’ front. 

This is the 59th quadrennial presidential election going to take place on November 3, 2020. Voting policies are enacted and brought into effect primarily at the state level. These policies set guidelines for American citizens in casting ballots in their respective states. The policies include areas like voter accessibility policies, election integrity policies, same-day voter registration, no-excuse absentee voting, and…



The derivatives of the Cannabis plant have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years now. In the year 2018, more than 11.8 million adults reported its use in the previous year. According to a 2019 survey by Monitoring the Future, a significant increase was seen in the daily use of marijuana in the younger grades. Also, it was noted that teens’ perceptions of the risks of marijuana use have gradually declined over the past decade.  Gallup, a Washington based analytics and advisory company, found that support for national legalization hit an all-time high in 2018-19 at 66%. In the current electoral race, we have already witnessed a lot of discussions on marijuana and its respective laws. The legalization of marijuana has become a mainstream issue having support from most of the presidential candidates. However, three of the candidates viz. Joe Biden, Michael


Climate change has become a screaming issue in view of increasing ecological imbalances and natural calamities. President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement has created outrage among many citizens and environmentalists. All the top Democratic candidates favor engagement in the Paris Agreement. Climate change was not a major issue in the last electoral race. It has gained ground in the 2020 elections after the country greatly suffered from climatic catastrophes such as wildfires in California, flooding in the Midwest, and hurricanes in the Southeast. Sen. Michael Bennet plans on achieving 100% clean, net-zero emissions by 2050 and creating 10 million zero-emission economy jobs. Trump, on the other hand, has always dismissed the scientific consensus on the effects of climate change



Agriculture has never been a high-profile election campaign issue in the US. But the game’s about to change this year as the farming community supported Trump in the last elections. With over 2 million farms in the country, no one can undermine the importance of agriculture in deciding the direction of electoral politics. Many Democrats have already endorsed the Green New Deal that addresses critical issues such as global warming and structural inequality in the economy. Joe Biden, in his ”The Biden Plan for Rural America”, strongly supports the cause of farmers by proposing an increase in the financial support for beginning farmers and expanding the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP).



The run-up for the 2020 presidential election has seen several issues of concern. Religion has been one of the topics of discussion during the Democratic presidential primary. The dialogues around the social and religious issues have led to pointing out how the candidates’ religious beliefs have shaped their political positions. However, according to the latest survey by Pew Research Center, Americans don’t consider the Democratic candidates to be particularly religious. The survey described Vermont senator Bernie Sanders as “not too” or “ not at all” religious by every six in ten Americans. Sanders has mentioned that he is “not actively involved with organized religion,” but being Jewish has shaped his values…



“The nation should have a tax system that looks like someone designed it on purpose.” As said by William Simon, the taxation policy in the upcoming Democratic election is being taken up as an issue of significance. 

Of these issues, capital gains is one. These are taxed from the sale of investments like stocks, artwork, and real estate at a rate lower than other income. This ranges from 15 percent to 20 percent, depending on how long they’ve been held. 

On this, some Democratic candidates believe that capital gains should be on an equal stance with income when it comes to taxes. They also believe that a lower capital gains rate…

Never miss the highlight.
