Health Care - An Oregon senator doesn't have much say over the future of health care but with minor changes to the food stamp program we could save billions in health care costs and more importantly give our most vulnerable the blessing of good health.
Homeless - The homeless provide the states federal money which creates an incentive for restrictive housing regulation and land use laws. My plan is to stop paying states for creating homeless people and make the municipalities (Portland and Eugene) pay for the homeless problem they created with cruel no growth land use policies.
Firearms - I am pro education and will work every day to create and environment where hunter safety classes are taught in as many schools as possible. I am against terrifying children with "Active Shooter Drills"
Environment - It would be relatively easy to turn the forests into carbon vacuums that could counter the damage that China has caused with stupid manufacturing policies. Cap and trade is counter productive, modern logging and forestry techniques are productive.
Education - Free collage for all? Sure, it would be reasonable to make an on-line school. Imagine Neil deGrasse Tyson giving a lecture on astrophysics or Elon Musk talking engineering, the possibilities are amazing. The best part is low income Americans wouldn't be forced to borrow in order to improve themselves and we could easily pay for it by ending federal subsidies to "higher" education including tax breaks that allow them the same status as a Church.
