Environment & Climate Change
Climate change is a real and growing threat to our economy, health, and wellbeing. We are the last generation with a real opportunity to tackle this issue and solve it before it’s too late.
Adam will stand with 97% of scientists and fight to protect our environment. This includes supporting efforts to expand environmental protections, higher fuel efficiency standards for cars, and expanded investments in renewable energy sources.
Our withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement was a grave misstep in caring for our nation’s environment. Adam strongly opposes fossil fuel exploration, new drilling, and fracking. Our country is beautiful and rich in natural resources. We must preserve the things that make it special by instating the proper environmental protections and encouraging companies to participate in the process.
The cost of healthcare is one of the top threats to the economic wellbeing of Americans and the country as a whole. Republicans have turned the healthcare discussion into a partisan debate rather than addressing the issue. The exam room is no place for politics. Many quality plans have been suggested to create Medicare for All Americans. The fact is, we CAN afford Medicare for All; we can’t afford to continue kicking the healthcare can up the road for future generations to address.
The healthcare crisis, like the climate crisis, is here now and we must act before a crisis turns into a catastrophe. Adam will fight to create a healthcare system that provides affordable, high-quality healthcare for all Americans.
Equality and Human Rights
It is time to protect every American from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, Adam knows the importance and far-reaching benefits of equality. He believes strongly in equal protections for all Americans and supports passing the Equality Act, which amends existing civil rights laws to “provide consistent and explicit non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people across key areas of life, including employment, housing, credit, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service.”
Similarly, it is time for states to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, which was passed by Congress in 1972, and prohibits denying or abridging equal rights by the nation or any state on account of sex.
