Statement: I am not a professional politician. I earn my living exporting northwest agricultural products. Last year, I brought tens of millions of dollars into our economy; sustaining thousands of real jobs for real people. So, I am troubled when politicians tax small businesses and working families just to protect government jobs.
Taxing a builder just to pay a bureaucrat does not make the economy stronger. Only more private sector jobs do that. The incumbent politicians just don't get it. If we love our children, we owe them a fiscally sound state. We have to fix this. Are you with me?
