Government Spending/Growth is out of Control. PERS Benefits = Contributions + Earnings. When earnings "tank, " contributions must increase (taxpayers part) to stay solvent OR the UAL (Unfunded Actuarial Liability) grows. Taxing business is wrong approach, only makes liability grow. No public funding of abortions.
Public Education needs competition. Put Parents back in control of Education with a Voucher good at any Public/Private School. Dedicate half of General Fund to Counties to Fund Education Locally.
Eliminate taxes on Businesses in Oregon and make Oregon a Business Magnet. More Private Sector Businesses/Employment, less Government Employment = More Prosperous Oregonians.
Natural Resource ManagementNatural Resource based businesses: Farming, Ranching, Logging and Mining need to be encouraged by State, less regulated. Counties should manage the People of Oregon's Land within their jurisdiction.
