Hillary Clinton

 

Students Loans and College Affordability

We should finance federal student loans by cutting the interest rates roughly in half. We should also make refinancing available to borrowers with private student loans that are current.

Art Censorship

We should support the National Endowment of the Arts. The arts speak to us; they tell us who we are. I think that as a nation we need that today because we’re going through such a changing time.

Economic and Employment Opportunities

Invest in infrastructure, raise the minimum wage, focus on small business and entrepreneurship.

In terms of involving art in government, I would… 

Advocate for a sculpture garden and crafts collection at the White House.

Federal Minimum Wage

I want to raise the federal minimum wage to $12, and encourage other communities to go even higher.

 

Donald Trump

 

Students Loans and College Affordability

The government should not make money off student loans. We should help solve the student loan problem by creating jobs in the private sector.

Art Censorship

Ensure that the National Endowment of the Arts stops funding of this sort of art. It’s not art. It’s absolutely gross, degenerate stuff. It shouldn’t be funded by government.

Economic and Employment Opportunities

Lower corporate, capital gains and dividend taxes so employers can invest more in hiring.

In terms of involving art in government, I would… 

Identify artist to sing, read or invite to the White House.

Federal Minimum Wage

I don’t know how people make it on $7.25. I don’t know what the ideal minimum wage is, but I think people have to get more.

 

Gary Johnson

Students Loans and College Affordability

Don’t change anything when it comes to student loans. The reason for the higher cost in higher education rests with the fact that there are those student loans available.

Art Censorship

Strike down all anti-pornography laws as unwarranted interference with private and voluntary acts and also end all government funding of art.

Economic and Employment Opportunities

Get rid of the unnecessary laws and taxes that syphon the resources businesses use to create the jobs we need.

In terms of involving art in government, I would… 

End all government funding of art; the label of “artist” confers no special right to a living at public expense.

Federal Minimum Wage

Nobody works for minimum wage, back to this whole notion of showing up on time and wearing clean clothes gets you way above the minimum wage. I think when government gets involved in setting wages, there’s no stopping what government will intervene in.

 

Jill Stein

jill-stein

 

Students Loans and College Affordability

We must make public higher education free. It pays for itself by a seven fold margin, as we saw with the GI Bill following World War II.

Art Censorship

Freedom of artistic expression is a fundamental right and a key element in empowering communities, and in moving us toward sustainability and respect for diversity.

Economic and Employment Opportunities

The government should directly create jobs related to renewable energy and human needs like food. We should have a “living wage” of $16.50 or more.

In terms of involving art in government, I would… 

Support visible art at local, state and federal levels of government.

Federal Minimum Wage

Raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour is a simple and effective way to fight growing inequality and empower working people to provide a decent life for their families.
