Massively boost transportation infrastructure spending

Marianne Williamson on Transportation: Boost infrastructure spending, but no stated funding mechanism.

SEVEN CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Michael Bennet; Joseph Biden, Jr.; Peter Buttigieg; Julian Castro; Seth Moulton; Bernard Sanders; Andrew Yang.

A majority of candidates with expressed views on infrastructure funding are long on ideas for how to spend billions--sometimes trillions--of dollars, but short on where that money would come from. Silent, in fact.

Marianne Williamson's proposal includes accelerating electric vehicles and their charging infrastructure, rebuilding rail lines, updating clean water systems and "massively investing" in public transit.

Michael Bennet has said he will "work to" fix crumbling infrastructure, expand transit and airports, and build out rural broadband.

Break up tech giants like Facebook, Google, & Amazon

Williamson on Tech Competition & Antitrust: Break them up.

FOUR CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: Bill de Blasio; Tulsi Gabbard; Bernard Sanders; Elizabeth Warren.

Sen. Warren laid down a marker by calling for Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple to be broken apart, saying the companies should be designated as "platform utilities" and prohibited from both owning a platform and competing on it. Williamson told the Times she has "no problem with the idea of breaking some of these companies up."

Harness motivation like JFK did going to moon

Kennedy did not say I have a plan to get a man to the moon. Kennedy said, by the end of this decade, we are going to put a man on the moon. I have had a career harnessing the inspiration and the motivation of people. When we say we are going to turn from a dirty economy to a clean economy, we're going to have a Green New Deal, we're going to create millions of jobs, we're going to do this within the next 12 years, we are interested in our grandchildren. Then it will happen.
