Right now our nation is facing two dire issues, our crumbling infrastructure and climate change. John has a plan to address both of these issues head on.
John’s proposal would create a carbon tax to tax pollution at its source. The pollution tax would create a $1 trillion revenue stream that would be invested in infrastructure projects across the country. This plan funds critical projects, without adding to our national debt.
Projects like John’s to modernize the city of Hartford by burying I-84 and I-91 underground would be able to get funded.
It would also allow us to:
– Improve Public Safety
– Modernize Our Rail System
– Reduce Pollution
– Expand Access to Broadband
– Invest in communities most affected by pollution.
– Put America Back to Work
John is also a supporter of the Green New Deal and believes we must address our global climate crisis head on. Learn more about John’s proposal here.
