You cannot call yourself a progressive if you support tax cuts to coal companies.
Our planet is burning. We have the power to stop it. There are hundreds of policies which can be used to both fight global warming and help marginalized people.
Please support expanding access to food stamps. Expand access to college. Boost support for K-12 education. Bring back the WPA. Increase subsidies for solar panels, geothermal, and yes, even nuclear power.
Support exemption-free carbon taxes.
But if you have ever once supported tax exemptions to coal companies, you likely will not get my vote, and you will definitely never get my labor or campaign donations for any of your campaigns for the rest of your career unless if you come around and join us at Carbon Washington and Carbon Tax Center for climate policy which is both equitable and effective.
