To gain a feeling of what legislation I would cosponsor and/or create, here is a sampling of current bills, resolutions, joint resolutions and concurrent resolutions that I would support. As you can see by the sponsors, they are both Democrats and Republicans. I don’t give support down party lines, I support great ideas. I look forward to the opportunity to work with both sides of the aisle and write legislation that positively affects Oregon District 2, America and the planet.
This needs an amendment before I’d support it. I don’t believe for-profit private practices should be excluded. They need to be included so people can choose whom ever they want too and then pay the difference if they wish to use for-profit private care.
