Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Olszewski's website highlights the following campaign themes:

Healthcare

Obamacare must be repealed and replaced. The Federal government’s intrusion into your private healthcare has created the Doctor-Center of Medical Services-IRS-Patient relationship. Your personal and very private health information is now more important to Washington DC than your actual medical care.

Montana has to be proactive in creating healthcare laws that give Montanans the greatest ability to decide for themselves when, where, and how they will engage Montana’s medical system on their own terms. Above all else, Montanan’s desperately need patient-centered reform of the entire healthcare system. These reforms must maintain the quality, accessibility, and reasonable innovation of the delivery our healthcare. Reform must also improve the affordability, responsiveness, and choice in the current healthcare structure.[2][3]

The Proposed Water Rights Compact

The Montana State Constitution makes it very clear that Montana owns all rights to water for appropriation and private use (Article IX, sect 3). Furthermore, the constitution acknowledges that the State cannot sell, nor give away Montana’s right to water without the consent of the people.[4][3]

Common Core Curriculum

I support education that is the product of locally directed curriculum.

1. Our local school boards are in control of developing the full educational potential our children (M.C. Article X sect 1). I do not agree with our federal government coercing our local school boards with significant funding promises if they submit to Common Core implementation.
2. In addition, as Montana citizens we have a constitutional right to privacy that is more stringent than that provided by the federal constitution (M.C. Article II sect 10). It is not right that the federal government requires our school districts to provide our children’s personal educational and biometric information in order to receive federal funding. Our local school boards and State legislature must protect our children’s privacy.[5][3]
