BUDGET & SPENDING: 

Sen. Harris has routinely brushed aside questions about how she would pay for her radically expensive proposals and seems disinterested in addressing the debt or deficit.

SOCIALIST SCORE:

CIVIL LIBERTIES: 

Sen. Harris voted against the FISA Amendments Reauthorization Act, and has decried abuses, but has said that as president, she “would respect” the domestic surveillance laws on the books.

TAXES: 

Sen. Harris has promised to raise marginal tax rates and her proposals would bring the top marginal rate to effectively 73.8 percent, which would devastate the economy.

AGRICULTURE: 

Sen. Harris supported the Farm Bill and was actually instrumental in getting millions in extra subsidies included in the final package for the Salton Sea.

FOREIGN POLICY: 

Sen. Harris has voted for ending support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen and supported troop withdrawals. She has wavered on how quickly that would happen and criticized President Trump’s plan to pull out of Afghanistan.

TRADE: 

Sen. Harris generally supports free trade, but voted against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and has demanded increased labor protections and environmental regulations in trade deals.

HEALTHCARE: 

Sen. Harris regularly flip flops on healthcare. She’s endorsed Medicare for All and is a co-sponsor of the bill. She also endorsed the abolition of all private insurance, before she recanted.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM: 

Sen. Harris has recently supported good criminal justice reform measures. However, she has quite an authoritarian history as a prosecutor and Attorney General in California.

WELFARE & ENTITLEMENTS:

Sen. Harris has endorsed an even more aggressive expansion of Social Security and proposed a tax credit for those who spend over 30 percent of income on rent.

TECH & TELECOMMUNICATIONS: 

Sen. Harris has called for increased investigation into tech companies and excess taxes. She also supported the Title II regulations.

ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT:

Sen. Harris co-sponsored the Green New Deal and has a plan that would invest $10 trillion to achieve the deal’s goals. She also wants a federal drinking water bill.

EDUCATION: 

Sen. Harris has put a big emphasis on forced bussing in her education policy. She has vocally opposed school choice, despite her insistence that no good options be off the table for students.

IMMIGRATION: 

Sen. Harris wants to expand the Obama-era DACA protections. She also came out in favor of decriminalizing illegal border crossings.
