Delaney in South Carolina


Although he is not opposed to the Green New Deal being proposed by Democrats, he does not believe universal healthcare should be wrapped into the same package.

Delaney said he wants to see a carbon tax bill and investments in clean energy research and weather resilient infrastructure. He said that the country has a history of innovating its way out of problems and that “moonshot-style” innovation would be necessary for the environment.

“We are also leaving you and our kids debts you can’t repay,” Delaney said of climate change and the U.S. economy.
