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?
