Tom Steyer on Technology

Democratic Presidential Challenger; CEO


We need to hit reset button on how we think about technology

We don't want to let internet service providers dictate which website you can visit or be able to charge you different rates for different content. We certainly don't want to have technology companies destroy competitors and stifle choice, innovation, and competition because of their size. We need to hit the reset button on how we think about technology and how we protect the rights of individual Americans. We should aggressively regulate these companies.

Collect census data on LGBTQ status

Q: LGBTQ Americans will not be counted on the 2020 census. What is your plan to account for this?

STEYER: What do you mean by they won't be counted on the census? They will not be identified on the census?

Q: Correct; LGBTQ identities will be removed from being asked the question on the census in 2020.

STEYER: I think it's clear that this administration is scared of data that contradicts their underlying beliefs. Look, it is absolutely critical to get the data on subjects like this, because I think that kind of information gives a power to this community politically that is really important. And when I said, how do you make change here? My answer is "grassroots." This kind of data is the proof that at the grassroots the LGBTQ community has real power. So it's absolutely critical that we, in fact, get this information. This is going to be the data that empowers this community to make the changes and to scare the politicians into doing what's right.
