FACTS

    Presidential candidate Joe Biden announced a $2 trillion climate plan on Tuesday which will attempt to slash carbon emissions, create jobs, and address the issue of racism. The plan includes the goal of attaining “carbon-free power generation” by the year 2035. In order to pay for the plan, corporate tax rates would rise from 21% to 28%, something he called “asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share.”

    “These are the most critical investments we can make for the long-term health and vitality of both the American economy and the physical health and safety of the American people. When Donald Trump thinks about climate change, the only word he can muster is ‘hoax.’ When I think about climate change, the word I think of is ‘jobs.’”

    LEFT

    Although the Left has been critical of Biden’s stance on many things, which they claim is not progressive enough, they support his climate plan. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee called it “visionary” and praised Biden for coming up with a “comprehensive” plan above the status quo. Sen. Elizabeth Warren also supported his plan, noting “Usually environmental justice is an afterthought, or it’s not clearly quantified.” Bernie Sanders, a progressive Vermont senator who has been working with Biden on a joint task force, said, “I think the compromise that they came up with, if implemented, will make Biden the most progressive president since FDR.”

    RIGHT

    Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) criticized the plan, saying, “You would have higher energy costs, and you would see who gets hit the hardest — it’s low-income families.” President of Western Energy Alliance Kathleen Sgamma said that the plan would ultimately hurt the energy sector and stated that they would “focus on moderating these policies once Biden moves from appeasing the Left during the campaign to potentially governing.” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson referred to Biden as the puppet of far-left, socialist politicians, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders:

    “The people around Biden, by contrast, are not anxious. They are completely in control. They know exactly what they want…These are the people who will run the country if Joe Biden is elected in November.”
