There’s been quite a lot, we thought this partial alphabetized list might be helpful when talking to voters:
Abortion Rights Defense (contraception and in vitro fertilization may be the next rights on the Republicans target list).
Civil/Voting Rights (vs. Republican voter suppression limiting mail-in ballots, closing polling places in poor neighborhoods, removing people who haven’t voted from the rolls, voter ID, striking down Voting Rights Act protections, eliminating affirmative action and diversity measures). Appointment of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson vs. Brett Cavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, etc. And don’t forget that Youngkin made Critical Race Theory the main (false) issue of his campaign for Governor.
Environment/Climate Change biggest investment ever, $369 billion, for climate change amelioration in the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, rejoined Paris Agreement, and VA Dems support staying in Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
Governmental Integrity restored (vs. the corruption of Trump retaliatory firings of Comey and McCabe and Vindman, Barr incorrectly characterizing Mueller Report findings, etc.)
Gun Safety commonsense measures in the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, over decades-long Republican opposition, that will save lives: enhanced background checks, closing the “boyfriend loophole”, and providing funding for youth mental health.
Inflation (a worldwide problem caused by pandemic supply chain and Russia invading Ukraine), Dems are fighting it via release of strategic oil reserves, Medicare drug price negotiation, Affordable Care Act prices reduced by $800, pressure on corporations to reduce pandemic windfall profits.
Infrastructure Modernization ($1.2T package to create jobs and improve America’s highways, bridges, and airports and also make broadband Internet more widely available).
January 6th Attack on the Capitol pushed for and created a bipartisan committee whose investigation has uncovered a tremendous amount of new information about the seditious insurrectionists, hate groups prosecuted (vs. Republicans closely allied with Steve Bannon, Proud Boys, etc.).
Job Gains lowest unemployment rate in 50 years and 6.6 million new jobs created, the most by any US President, signed CHIPS and Science Act to strengthen American manufacturing and innovation.
LGBTQ Rights (vs. Youngkin and other Republican culture war battles over transgender accommodations and LGBT rights in general).
Medicare Protection (McCarthy and Republicans want to cut/change it), $2,000/yr cap on prescription drug prices for seniors, new authority for Medicare to lower drug prices through negotiation
Social Security Protection (McCarthy and Republicans want to cut/change).
Student Loan Debt many are eligible for tens of thousands of dollars in debt forgiveness (Republicans have sued to block it)
Tax Reform new 15% Alternative Minimum tax on large corporations.
Ukraine Support (remember Trump impeachment #1?) via sanctions on Russia.
Veterans Support passage of the PACT Act to address harmful effects of burn pits and other toxins.
Women’s Issues Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, support for Abortion and other reproductive rights, “boyfriend exception” included in gun safety bill Dems passed.
