THE LARS LARSON SHOW
HEARD ON LARS LARSON
State of Repair?
I’m not holding my breath for Governor Kitzhaber to
take MY suggestions for his state of the state address this week but here
goes. The governor needs to fix the
Public employee retirement system now…not a year from now. This system is bankrupting local government
as they spend more and more to fill the pensions of the government elite while
citizens pay more taxes and get less service.
The Governor needs to address the destructive behavior of union long
shore thugs…who threaten to drive away the business that keeps the Port of
Portland one of the biggest economic drivers in the region. Kitzhaber appoints the board. Kitzhaber needs to drop his crazy plan to
release murderers, rapists and robbers from prison for a tiny savings to the
state budget…and a huge cost to residents of the state. He needs to abandon his plans for a sales
tax. Government has plenty of your
money. And Schools need a fix…not with
more cash…but a system that punishes mediocrity among teachers who fail about
40 percent of the state’s school kids. Oh, and by the way, no silly
unconstitutional infringements on gun rights.
