Biden Promises $2 Trillion in Climate Action
Today, presidential candidate Joe Biden promised to spend $2 Trillion over 4 years to combat climate change, create middle- and working-class jobs, and even start to correct racial disparities.
On the one hand, I know mainstream Democrats promise the world and never follow through. I'd expect nothing less from Joe or Kamala (whoever ends up being the driving force behind the throne).
On the other hand, I do not recall hearing such specifics from a Democratic candidate before. Hillary never said much about climate change at all. Obama really didn't either. This seems somewhat tangible.
What is being said here has the basic outlines as to what I've been advocating for the past decade. Reduce the military by $300 billion per year, spend that to tackle climate change for the next 30 years. Biden's plan is basically $500 billion per year for only 4 years, but it is much more than I was expecting to hear from him. (It doesn't reduce the military as far as I can tell, but it is $2 trillion over 4 years versus the $1.2 trillion over the same time for my pie-in-the-sky plans.
What are your thoughts? Would this get you to cast a vote for the person who raked Anita Hill over the coals and helped to get Clarence Thomas approved, supported wars en masse, standing at the entryway to dementia, and is touchy-feely-hair sniffy with any young woman within arms length?
Should he actually be considered??? Or is it simply all bull . . .
