Seth Moulton on Technology

Democratic Presidential Challenger (withdrawn); MA Rep.

 


Invest in autonomous, hypersonic, and cyber weapons

When it comes to national security, our solution has too often been only "more:" more ships, more troops, more spending. But instead of always fighting with more, we have to fight smarter. No more building outdated, costly weapons systems--we need to make sure our troops have the best technology to defeat our adversaries and support our allies. That means dramatically increasing our investment in autonomous, hypersonic, and cyber weapons--and continuing to invest in basic scientific research.

Rebuild our economy by rebuilding our infrastructure

We need to equip Americans with the tools they need to thrive in the new economy--not the old. We can rebuild our economy by rebuilding our country. That starts with connecting every house in America to affordable, high-speed internet. And it means not just repairing our roads, bridges, and water pipes but building next-generation transportation, like high-speed rail, because everyone should have access to good jobs in their region and a chance to make it home after work in time for dinner.

Build local infrastructure and smart transportation

Growing up in a Democratic household in a small town, I learned early on that we are all connected. Small businesses create solid middle class jobs, and a thriving middle class pumps money back into the local economy. When the middle class can't grow, America's greatest economic engine is starved.

Those of us in the middle class are getting squeezed. Congress has done a lot to help the rich, and does a lot to help the poor (though it could do more), but Congress seems to be forgetting the middle class.

There are a number of ways that Congress can help our economy grow faster and bring jobs; I will focus initially on three:

  1. Reform the tax code to help small businesses.
  2. Improve educational opportunities for all.
  3. Build local infrastructure to create jobs and attract businesses to the 6th district: Smart transportation improvements, downtown economic development zones, and targeted flood protection and other federal support will attract more businesses to the district.
