When I read the East Oregonian Friday, I was so pleased to see that we in Eastern Oregon were being clearly represented by a man of integrity. Bill Hansell knows the impact of this supermajority socialist agenda against us in this region. He walked out, so as not to allow this Legislature to slam us with another tax. Yes, folks, it is a tax. This will increase the cost of products and services we use daily in our lives.
It's socialism at its best, and Kate (Maduro) Brown will do anything to keep her socialist ideas and cronies in power to push their economically disastrous ideas to fruition. This includes having our only real representative of Eastern Oregon to be forcibly, if found, dragged back and have to sit in and watch the socialist supermajority ram this cap and trade bill down our throats.
Does this sound familiar? These are the actions of Venezuela’s socialist president, having opposition party members rounded up. What’s next, Kate, jail time for legal publicly represented discourse? This governor is acting like a dictator, not a person of governance.
Since the governor and her cronies consistently, and defiantly, ignore federal law, should the president order U.S. Marshals to find them, round them up and make them sit unwillingly in federal court to be prosecuted in violation of federal law? I would say that would be fair according to their actions.
If you need a place to stay, I have numerous family members out of state. In addition, we should help this man with the fine being imposed by the state, as he showed great resolve too many times in the recent past with this socialist majority continuously shoving their extremely ultra-expensive, less than thought out, and unfairly debated agenda. Kate (Maduro) Brown should think about the precedents she and her comrades have set. You can’t go back from that, Kate!
Thank you, Bill! I have your back, as you have had mine, and my neighbors'. We need more representation like you who care about us all, not the ones who, with special interest groups, fatten their pockets.
