Jobs and business are critical to the prosperity of a state. Free markets ensure a free people. I will continue finding, and working to eliminate, unnecessary regulations (and taxes) so we can improve the business climate in our state. Businesses should be establishing themselves in the 4th District, not Post Falls, Idaho.
All citizens deserve affordable health care. Currently, Washington has less than 10 plans to choose from. Some states have over 100. I have and will continue to encourage competition and lower premiums by allowing more plans into the state. I will also promote the reduction of government mandates on insurance and other non-insurance free-market solutions. Additionally, I will continue to fight the imposition of federal government run health care through the State Sovereignty movement.
