The two Democratic Party presidential aspirants, Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, are currently competing fiercely against each other to become the party’s flag bearer in the coming general elections that are just around the corner. Despite the fact that Clinton has emerged the winner in most of the states, it is still too early to ignore the impact that Sanders may have on the outcome. Over the last few months, he has become a real threat to the Clinton side and is more likely to win more in some of the early-voting states such as New Hampshire and Iowa.
Nonetheless, the two aspirants agree on some issues that have a direct impact on the economy of the country as well as the wellbeing of us, the citizens of the United States. Here are some of the main issues that the two leaders tend to agree.
Campaign Finance: They both support the overturning of the Citizens United and recommend that companies disclose the specific amount of money that they offer as donations to the super PACs.
Minimum Wage: This is a matter close to the heart of millions of Americans. Both camps support the proposal to increase the federal minimum wage. However, Clinton wants the threshold to be set at $12 per hour while Sander wants the federal minimum wage to be $15 per hour.
Immigration Rules: They both support the proposed path to citizenship and Dream Act. Nevertheless, their proposals are slightly different; Clinton wants Obama’s executive actions on immigration to be enforced while Sanders is of the idea that the executive actions should be expanded to be more inclusive.
Finally, they both oppose the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership. Some of the issues that the two do not agree on include training of Syrian rebels to fight ISIS and military intervention in Afghanistan.
