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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
