Delaney on climate change
Delaney, who is a moderate candidate, is in line with many of his fellow Democratic candidates in this pledge. But on another issue key to Democratic voters — the issue of climate change — he differs.
Asked about the reaction to his $4 trillion climate change plan released last week, which advocates for a carbon fee and dividend system, Delaney criticized plans of his fellow Democrats as tough on American families.
“I don’t think you can solve climate change on the backs of hard-working Americans,” Delaney said. “So many Americans are struggling right now. We can’t put forth plans, like many of my competitors are doing, that just crushes working families. We have to have a totally different approach.”
